Nursing Home Malpractice

The choice to place a loved one in a nursing home is challenging, and you take your choice of nursing home very seriously. Whichever facility you select, you trust it to ensure that your loved one is safe, healthy and happy during his or her stay.

Unfortunately, not every nursing home lives up to your trust and expectations. Nursing home negligence resulting in serious injury or death is much more common than it should be. When it occurs, the consequences can be tragic for your family. If you worry that your loved one is the victim of nursing home negligence, you should be able to hold the guilty party accountable and ensure that they pay for any damages for your family member. In the Virginia Beach area, working with the law firm of Bennett & Sharp, PLLC, can help you to make a nursing home negligence claim for serious injuries and death.
