Legal Representation Following Infections In Nursing Homes
Neglect and/or abuse in nursing homes should never be tolerated. Nursing homes need to be held responsible for the injuries and illnesses that residents incur as the result of negligence. This can include infections.
Whether the infection should never have been contracted in the first place or it was improperly treated, leading to subsequent injuries, a nursing home lawyer can help you understand your rights and stand up for your loved one.
Our lawyers at the New York law firm of Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, are strong believers in the responsibility that nursing homes have to patients. Infections need to be taken very seriously and when they are not, we aggressively pursue justice for those who have suffered as a result of the infections. Contact us today to learn more about our firm’s 60 years of practice and how we handle nursing home cases.
Treatment Of Infections
Nursing homes need to take immediate action when an infection is suspected. Doctors need to be consulted, tests need to be done and medications need to be administered in order to protect the resident’s health.
Dealing With Fatal Infections
Unfortunately, some systemic and other infections can be fatal to a nursing home resident, whose immune system may already be compromised and unable to fight off the infection. If your loved one has died as the result of an infection, we can file a wrongful death lawsuit on your behalf.
