Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Compensation
When you suspect a loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, you may wonder what you can accomplish with a nursing home abuse lawsuit. That is, what do you hope to gain by pursuing a lawsuit on behalf of a victim?
A nursing home abuse and neglect case is a civil action*. You pursue financial compensation and court orders, as appropriate. The lawsuit can find you justice in the form of holding the responsible parties liable, and you may receive compensation for your losses.
*Criminal charges may also be appropriate. Our attorneys can help you make the proper reports to law enforcement. Criminal charges run concurrently and in addition to a civil action. Both actions may be necessary to protect your loved one and receive justice.
*You may also pursue your case based on the Nevada Nursing Home Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights expands (but does not limit) the rights of nursing home residents to adequate care and transparent services.

Nursing Home Abuse and COVID-19 Coronavirus
If you or a loved one contracted COVID-19 (the Coronavirus) while residing in a nursing home, you may deserve financial compensation. Cleanliness and sanitation are part of the responsibilities of a nursing home.
