Some nursing homes provide attentive and diligent care for the seniors entrusted to them.

Others put profit first and cut corners at every turn. Your loved one could pay the price for the nursing home’s carelessness and greed. If your family member was abused at a nursing home, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit. Call the Hite Law Firm to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case with a nursing home abuse attorney in Greenwood.

Nursing Homes in the Greenwood Area

There are many assisted living facilities and two major nursing homes that serve the Greenwood area:

  • NHC Healthcare
  • Healthcare Center of Wesley Commons

We handle cases against assisted living facilities and nursing homes that are owned either by large corporations or independently operated.

Types of Nursing Home Abuse

Many people think that nursing home abuse is limited to unlawful physical contact with the senior. However, abuse extends far beyond that. Nursing home abuse includes:

  • Neglecting seniors by not giving them the proper supervision and care in their daily activities (such as eating and hygiene)
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse by staff members or other residents
  • Financial abuse, where the nursing home does not safeguard the resident’s money and property, or a staff member steals from the senior
  • Emotional abuse

If your loved one has been injured because of a lack of care, it counts as nursing home abuse, and your family can file a lawsuit. First, your family must learn that your loved one was a victim of abuse at a nursing home.

Damages in a Nursing Abuse Case

Your family can receive compensation for what your loved one endured. There are three types of lawsuits that could be filed against a nursing home:

  • Wrongful death cases when your loved one died from their injuries
  • Survival actions to recover damages for what your loved one endured between the time of their injury and death
  • Personal injury actions, when your family member survived the abuse but they were injured

If your lawsuit is successful, your family could receive:

  • Medical costs to treat your loved one’s injury
  • Pain and suffering, to account for your family member’s ordeal and discomfort
  • Your family’s own grief and loss of the close relationship with the family member
  • Punitive damages if the nursing home’s abuse was extreme and shocking
