Nursing Home Abuse and Wrongful Death

A person’s retirement years should be a time of peace and relaxation, a chance to finally rest after decades of hard work and raising a family. Unfortunately, our nursing home abuse lawyers have seen too many tragic cases where nursing home abuse is so severe and long-lasting that it results in the unnecessary death of a resident.

This is beyond unacceptable. Nursing homes have obligations to their residents, and chief among those is the obligation to keep people safe.

The nursing home abuse lawyers at The Cochran Firm stand ready to help you if your loved one has died as a result of abuse or neglect on the part of staff or administration. We have decades of experience with wrongful death cases, and we can fight for you in these difficult days.

Causes of Wrongful Deaths in Nursing Homes

Our nursing home abuse lawyers have seen a number of tragic wrongful death cases in their decades practicing law, which means they’re equipped to handle a wide range of claims.

Common causes of death caused by nursing home abuse include:

  • Outright physical abuse, including beatings
  • Neglect leading to untreated diseases or malnourishment
  • Medication errors
  • Misdiagnoses or poor treatment by on-site medical staff
  • Unwillingness to call in outside medical support

Many nursing homes have dedicated, professional staffs and administrators who care about their charges. However, too many homes are run by large corporations more concerned with profits than people.

You can discuss your case with our nursing home abuse lawyers at a free, no-obligation initial consultation. We’ll listen and then discuss the details of nursing home liability with you in a caring, compassionate manner.

Compensation Our Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers Can Pursue

In cases dealing with wrongful deaths that resulted from nursing home abuse, we can usually pursue compensation for:

  • Medical expenses accrued as a result of abuse
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of companionship

This is not an exhaustive list. The compensation available to you will be determined by the unique details of your case. Our nursing home abuse lawyers will discuss your options with you before taking the case.
