When someone you love is hurt, neglected, or abused due to nursing home abuse in Louisville, Kentucky, it's natural to feel angry, frustrated, upset, and even guilty for not realizing the abuse sooner or being a part of decision making process to put your loved one in that facility.
However, with the assistance of a Kentucky nursing home abuse lawyer, you can bring the people or entity responsible for your loved one's nursing home abuse in Louisville, Kentucky, to justice.
A Kentucky nursing home has many employees staffed in various support and administrative roles, but not all are properly screened for a criminal background check. In Kentucky, nursing homes are required to run background checks for nurses only. Food preparation staff, maintenance, and administrative personnel, however, do not have to be screened. Yet they do have access to your loved one.

You may be entitled to compensation for:
- medical expenses,
- pain and suffering,
- psychological counseling, and/or
- wrongful death benefits.
