Nursing Home Injuries Attorney
Many of our elderly and disabled are being subjected to a new epidemic. It is called nursing home abuse and nursing home neglect. In 1997, there were approximately 1.6 million elderly and disabled in 16,800 nursing homes across the United States. Sadly, it is estimated that as many as 35,000 die prematurely every year due to abuse and neglect. A report to the U.S. House of Representatives found that almost one out of every three U.S. nursing homes was cited for an abuse violation in the two year period from January 1, 1999 through January 1, 2001.
After years of providing poor care, it seems nursing homes are finally being held accountable. A flood of lawsuits have been filed across the country and grieving families are receiving compensation for pain, suffering and the untimely deaths of loved ones.
