Nothing can prepare you for serious injuries from an unpredicted accident, whether those injuries are sustained by you or a loved one. Suddenly your life has spun out of control resulting in physical and emotional trauma, uncertainty about your health, how the injuries will impact your ability to work, your finances, and more. Life can seem unfair at such times. When such a situation occurs due to the negligence or wrongdoing of someone else, it becomes even more unfair that you have become victimized unnecessarily.

Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse and neglect is another type of personal injury negligence where our most vulnerable citizens suffer due to the wrongdoing of those who care for them. Injuries suffered in nursing homes can come about from falls, lack of proper care and supervision, medical and pharmaceutical errors, and more.
Many of these facilities are understaffed which can often lead to negligence. Furthermore, aides are often not paid very well resulting in further incompetence and inattention. Negligence in nursing homes can lead to many injuries, from skin breakdown and bedsores to dehydration, malnourishment, poor wound care, lack of supervision leading to wandering, medication errors, and more.

In all of the above personal injury and nursing home abuse scenarios, you or your loved one may deserve rightful compensation where negligence has occurred. That compensation can include all of your medical expenses, any future predicted medical expenses related to the injuries, pain and suffering, loss of wages or income, property damage (such as to your vehicle or personal belongings), emotional anguish, out-of-pocket expenses, and more.
When pursuing a personal injury claim, you will likely be dealing with the insurance company of the at-fault party or parties. It is vital to understand that these companies may appear to be friendly but they are not looking out for your best interests. Their main objective is to pay you as little as possible in order to maintain high profit. Because of this, their representatives are trained to engage in pressure tactics to get you to settle as quickly and as cheaply as possible. They have their own legal teams established to keep their liability low. That is why you need an aggressive attorney who understands the game and whose sole job is help you win fair and just compensation, whether it is through a negotiated settlement or at court.
