Nursing Home Neglect And Wrongful Death

If your loved one has died unexpectedly in a nursing home or other long-term care facility, we offer you our sincerest condolences for your loss. We know this is a difficult time for you, and we want to help in whatever way we can.

In far too many cases, unexpected or unexplained deaths in nursing homes are the result of neglect or abuse. At The Gebler Firm, PC, we have extensive experience in revealing the underlying causes of unexpected deaths, and often these investigations lead to wrongful death claims.

What Are My Rights?

After the wrongful death of a vulnerable loved one, you and your family may be entitled to compensation for what you and your loved one have suffered. No amount of money can repair the hurt caused by a death resulting from nursing home negligence, but justice demands that negligent nursing homes and other care facilities be held accountable under the law.

As passionate and experienced elder abuse lawyers, we are well aware of the signs of abuse and neglect in long-term care facilities, and we know how and where to look for the maximum available recovery for our clients.

If your loved one passed because of elder neglect or abuse, you have a right to bring a wrongful death claim. You may also be entitled to compensation for various damages recoverable. In wrongful death cases, such damages recoverable may include:

  • Loss of Society
  • Loss of Comfort
  • Loss of Care
  • Loss of Compassion
  • Loss of Economic Benefit to Heirs

Special Damages

Because there is an ongoing crisis in elder care, special damages have also been established under elder abuse statutes. These damages are meant to punish nursing homes and care facilities for elder neglect and abuse. Such special damages may include:

  • Civil Penalties for Each Statutory Violation
  • Punitive Damages Against the Facility or Owners to Punish or to Make an Example
  • Attorney Fees

While many attorneys advertise that they handle cases of nursing home abuse, few have mastered this area of law as we have. We know how to hold negligent care facilities accountable while maximizing our clients' recovery.
