In one sense, nursing homes are places where older individuals can live, thrive, and receive the support and help they need. In another sense, nursing homes are businesses that have a contractual obligation to take care of residents and keep them safe from preventable harm. When they fail to uphold their duty of care, nursing home facilities can be held accountable for any harm they cause and are liable for the damages victims and families suffer. Contact the experienced personal injury attorneys at Kuhlman & Lucas, LLC about filing claims for nursing home abuse or neglect in Kansas City.

When it comes to nursing home abuse and neglect, there are many different situations, accidents, and forms of negligence that can cause harm. A few examples of nursing home abuse and neglect include:

  • Physical, emotional, or sexual abuse
  • Financial exploitation
  • Nursing errors, including medical malpractice and prescription medication errors
  • Neglect, including neglecting basic needs and hygiene
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Bedsores
  • Premesis liability issues, including slip and fall accidents
  • Abuse or neglect that results in wrongful death

All forms of nursing home abuse and neglect can be devastating, especially when victims are in vulnerable states of health. While some forms of abuse and neglect may be criminal offenses, victims and families who wish to recover compensation will be required to pursue legal action by filing a personal injury claim in a civil court.

By filing a nursing home abuse or elder abuse claim, victims and families can work toward holding nursing home employees or assisted living facilities responsible for their negligence or misconduct. Given the fact that nursing homes are commercial businesses, these claims are often challenged by companies and insurance providers that care only about protecting their bottom line.
