Nursing Home Injury Claims Attorney Brent Wieand Handles

Abuse and neglect claims against assisted living facilities come in many different forms.  Some of the most common types of nursing home injury claims include but are not limited to:

  • Bed sores, also called pressure ulcers or decubitis ulcers.
  • Medication errors, such as incorrect dosages or prescriptions.
  • Dehydration and malnutrition.
  • Wrongful death.
  • Falls resulting in serious injury or broken bones.
  • Amputation due to untreated bed sores or poor diabetes management.
  • Physical, mental, or sexual abuse.
  • Financial exploitation.
  • Whistleblower lawsuits.
  • Wandering and elopement, where a resident leaves the facility grounds.

Common Causes of Elder Abuse and Caregiver Neglect

Big business has taken over the nursing home industry, and profits have become more important than providing reasonable care.  In fact, over 70% of facilities in the United States are for profit.  Recent reports show that most facilities are cutting workers, wages, and benefits, which puts senior residents at increased risk of being hurt or killed.

Under-staffed and improperly equipped facilities are major factors in neglect and abuse.  Sometimes, even good nurses are simply too busy to take care of all their residents. In other cases, stressed and disgruntled staff members simply disregard patient needs or intentionally abuse their residents.  If you suspect this is the case, speak up and contact an attorney immediately!  Your loved ones health and well-being may depend on it.

How Long Do I Have to File a Legal Claim in New Jersey?

In the state of New Jersey, there is a two-year statute of limitations on negligence and wrongful death claims.  This means that you must file a lawsuit within two years of the death or injury, or you will lose your right to file suit. Exceptions to this rule are very rare, so it is best to follow the two-year limit closely.

This process of investigating a nursing home malpractice claim may include interviewing relatives, collecting medical records, and consulting with medical experts.  Since the investigation process may require some time, you should consult with an attorney well before the statute of limitations deadline wherever possible.
