In any situation where a nursing home death has occurred, the nursing home should initiate a thorough investigation to ensure that no negligence contributed to the death. However, our firm also conducts an investigation in order to ensure that the nursing home is not trying to cover up any aspect of the death that may expose it to liability. In some cases, the State Department of Health or other government organizations may become involved.
Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Though we know that nothing can bring your loved one back, you may be able to gain some closure and justice through a wrongful death lawsuit. This is a lawsuit filed against the negligent party or parties (usually the nursing home and/or any staff that may have been involved) in order to recover damages for the loss. When a facility is deemed negligent, it must take responsibility and actions to ensure that this situation does not occur again, resulting in other deaths.
