Aggressively Pursuing Justice For Nursing Home Injuries
Putting someone you love into a nursing home can be extremely hard and emotionally straining. If you have to enter a care facility, you might feel like you have lost your independence. You are likely very concerned about the quality of care you or your loved ones will receive. Unfortunately, the personal well-being of nursing home residents is a legitimate concern.
At DeVore, Acton & Stafford, P.A., we help victims of nursing home injuries throughout Charlotte and North Carolina work through the legal process to secure compensation. Whether you or your loved one suffers from an injury due to negligence or is the victim of abuse, we commit to pursue justice for you.
When Trust Is Broken, Justice Is Deserved
When you place a loved one in a nursing home facility, you trust they will receive the attention and care they need to thrive. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Sadly, thousands of nursing home residents are injured each year. An alarming number of those injuries are linked to negligence on the part of care providers. Some common injuries reported at nursing homes include:
- Slip-and-falls injuries affecting an estimated 16% of nursing home patients each year
- Medication errors and overdose leading to serious health complications
- Malnourishment caused by inadequate access to appropriate food
- Injuries sustained while improperly supervised — such as dementia patients wandering away from the facility and injuring themselves
- Injuries and emotional issues resulting from direct abuse by caregivers
No one should ever live in an abusive or neglectful situation. It is particularly upsetting when it happens to vulnerable elderly people.
