Resident Alleges Negligence In Nursing Home Care

September 13, 2016

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every year hundreds of thousands of adults over the age of 60 are abused, neglected, or financially exploited. Unfortunately, these numbers may reflect only a small portion of the real problem; so many cases of abuse and neglect go unreported each year.

A nursing home has an obligation to care for their residents and provide the necessary medical attention. Unfortunately, this responsibility is often shirked, usually as a consequence of understaffing, under-trained employees, and other cost-cutting measures. When that happens, nursing home residents can suffer significant injuries, including death. When abuse or neglect occurs in the nursing home setting, the facility can be held liable. Consulting an experienced attorney is an important first step.

A woman has filed a lawsuit against Princeton Memorial Company d/b/a Princeton Health Care Center, a nursing home operator, alleging insufficient measures were taken to provide a safe environment. According to the lawsuit, during the period of time that the plaintiff was a resident at the defendant’s facility, she suffered from multiple falls, hematomas and rib fractures that resulted in needless pain and suffering. The complaint states that the defendant failed to provide adequate supervision and safety devices to prevent accidents, and failed to monitor and assess her condition. The plaintiff is seeking an undisclosed amount.

The litigation process is typically a financial and emotional roller coaster, especially when money is tight and the bills keep coming in. Victims do not want to conduct settlement negotiations when they are struggling, financially. If they do, they will, almost always, accept an offer that is less than full case value. Instead, plaintiffs may wish to apply for a lawsuit cash advance from Litigation Funding Corporation.
