Nursing Home and Care Facility Wrongful Death
Tragically, death results in some instances of nursing home, assisted living facilities, or adult foster care abuse and neglect. This is especially the case as residents may be in poor health prior to the abuse or neglect. Injuries that might not result in severe consequences to a younger person in good health can instead end up causing death to the elderly.
In many cases, death may not occur immediately after the abuse or neglect. A resident may suffer a fall that results in incapacitation and brain injury, which quickly transforms the resident from being in relatively good health to needing significant care. Because of the additional shock and trauma to the body, and because of the fragile nature of many residents, the resident’s physical health may deteriorate rapidly.
In order to recover damages in a wrongful death matter, it must be proved that the injury did in fact ultimately lead to the resulting death, and it must also be proven that the nursing home or care facility was negligent in causing the injury.
