Filing a Kentucky Nursing Home Claim
While the Elder Justice Act provides numerous resources to help prevent abuse or to provide measures that can be taken if abuse happens, you still have the right to seek help from a Louisville nursing home abuse lawyer if your loved one has been victimized.
Nursing home abuse can take many forms, from physical to sexual abuse. Emotional abuse can be just as damaging, and there have been many residents of nursing homes who were taken advantage of financially. No matter what type of abuse your loved one has suffered, you could have legal options available. A Louisville nursing home abuse lawyer can discuss these options with you.
When nursing home abuse leads to medical bills, they may be covered in a claim. Whether your loved one required prescription medication, doctor visits or hospitalization, these expenses could potentially be taken care of through a claim.
Emotional abuse may have led to the need for psychological care such as counseling. These additional expenses could also be addressed through a Kentucky nursing home abuse claim.
There may be other kinds of damages available, depending on the type and severity of injuries your loved one has suffered. Other damages could include pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, emotional distress, reduced quality of life, or even wrongful death.
You have the right to speak to a Louisville nursing home abuse lawyer when you suspect or have evidence that your loved one has been a victim. A lawyer will work with you to put together a solid case that demonstrates liability of a nursing home and/or caregiver.
While the defendants will have legal representation working for them, you need someone working on behalf of your loved one. You need someone who will defend his or her rights and has experience handling these types of claims.
