When conditions are bad enough, when physical abuse is severe, and when neglect or malnutrition are prolonged, an elder may lose his or her life while in the care of a nursing home. Negligence and/or wrongdoing are the causes for a wrongful death claim involving a nursing home or facility.
This extreme form of elder abuse is absolutely appalling, and legal action should be taken against the nursing home for this action. Consulting a nursing home abuse lawyer can give a victim's family a clear picture of what can be done.
