Laws and Legal
There are over 1.5 million elderly and dependent adults now living in nursing homes throughout the county. Because of insufficient and poorly trained staff, the residents of these homes are often subject to neglectful care and sometimes rude and abusive behavior. Lawsuits against nursing homes are on the rise; in fact, nursing home litigation is one of the fastest growing areas of health care litigation today.
The Nursing Home Injury Help Center website offers insight into the legal aspects of nursing home neglect and abuse cases, including state and federal laws which govern nursing home litigation, recent verdicts and settlements, hot litigation topics, insurance issues, litigation strategies and the rights of victims and their relatives.
