Causes of Nursing Home Negligence
Unfortunately nursing homes are sometimes understaffed and/or overworked and inattentive to the patients needs. This negligence often leads to bedsores, infections and worse. Patients may also be victims to physical, sexual and emotional abuse. Sadly the victims are often afraid or unable to speak out about the abuses being inflicted.

If you and your loved one are involved in nursing home negligence injury the insurance company will try to minimize the amount they will pay you and your loved one, that’s what they are paid to do.
