Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance which provides benefits to employees who have suffered a work-related injury or illness.
Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse is an unfortunate occurrence that has become widespread. In order to protect our elderly, both state and federal governments have enacted laws to protect nursing home residents. Although it mainly affects the elderly who are sick or infirm, it may happen at any age when a person is a resident in a nursing home for rehabilitation or custodial care.
Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse occurs when the nursing home’s care or treatment of a resident falls below the standard of care resulting in injury. This may also be known as a violation of the resident’s rights, such as their right to receive adequate and appropriate health care and protective and support services.
If you have been injured as a result of the wrongdoing of another, you could be entitled to money compensation. Contact The Law Offices of FMME today to set up a free consultation!
