What Can Studinski Law Do for You?
Nursing and care facilities must follow a very strict “standard of care” that they owe to residents. In an action to seek compensation from a nursing home, your attorney must show that the nursing home failed to meet this standard of care in caring for your loved one, and that their failure caused your loved one to sustain an injury. While there are many ways that a nursing home can fail to properly care for its residents, some of the most common ways include:

As a resident in a nursing home or rehabilitation facility, your loved one deserves to be treated with care and dignity. The law allows for you and your family to file a lawsuit against anyone who does not meet their duty of care and professionalism caring for you or someone you love. The Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987 was enacted to specifically protect those who are in the care of nursing home staff. The law’s bill of rights established the following rights for nursing home residents:

Elder abuse involves intentional actions to harm an elderly individual. An elderly person is someone who is advanced in age and who requires significant medical care to carry out their activities of daily living, such as bathing, cooking, and taking medications. Abuse may be physical, mental, emotional, or financial. Many specific action can constitute abuse. If you are concerned that your loved one is facing elderly abuse, contact a lawyer right away.
The Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987 gives nursing home residents rights while in long-term care facilities. If your loved one’s rights have been violated, they may have suffered abuse or neglect. We can help you determine if someone harmed your loved one and if you are entitled to compensation for losses as a result.
Often, abuse and neglect occur because the long term care facility fails to properly staff its facility or train those staff members who it employs. It may not have enough employees to provide proper care for all of its residents, resulting in neglect. Staff members may not be properly trained in how to move residents to prevent bedsores, resulting in a failure to provide proper care. However, sometimes independent medical providers or product suppliers cause harm to individuals in nursing homes. In those cases, an outside party may be liable. We can help you understand your case and navigate the nursing home abuse and neglect claims process.
We’ve successfully fought for justice in many nursing home abuse or neglect cases, and have the experience and compassion you or your loved one deserves.
