Nursing Home Negligence or mistreatment of loved ones.When individuals learn that their elderly loved ones have been mistreated or intentionally injured by the staff at a health care facility, the first reactions are usually anger and frustration. It is necessary to find a Fort Wayne nursing home negligence attorney to ensure you and your loved one are financially compensated for the mistreatment. At the Boughter Law Office, it is our goal to not only hold the liable parties responsible for their actions but to ensure you recover compensation that will allow you to seek the proper care and attention your elderly loved one deserves. We strive to remove as much emotion from the legal process as possible while negotiating with the nursing home facility and their insurance carrier.

Nursing home negligence can come in many forms, including:

  • Bedsores, also known as pressure sores or decubitus ulcers
  • Falls
  • Broken bones
  • Wandering/elopement
  • Improper use of restraints
  • Transportation injuries
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Medication errors
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Failure to treat
  • Maltreatment

You trust a nursing home staff to keep your loved ones safe and in good health. It is not uncommon for a nursing home to be understaffed or staffed by inattentive or negligent individuals. Schedule a free consultation with a lawyer immediately to discuss your situation and learn more about your options for compensation.
