Every year, thousands of people die due to the negligence of medical professionals and many more are critically injured. Medical professionals have a duty to care for their patients to the best of their ability and to follow the standard of care, however, many of them fail to do so. If you or a loved one have been a victim of negligence, you may be angry, frightened and unsure of what to do next. You may be overwhelmed with hospital bills, physical therapy, surgeries, and day to day expenses that are adding up due to lost wages.
Negligence most commonly occurs in nursing homes, although it can happen in any medical facility. Nursing homes are often short staffed, hire inexperienced individuals and provide incomplete training in an effort to save money. This results in many nursing home patients being inadequately cared for. A nursing home patient may develop serious conditions due to negligence such as malnutrition, dehydration, bed sores, poor hygiene and depression when they are not properly cared for.
