The decision to put a loved one in a nursing home is not an easy one. In a perfect world, we would provide the care giving ourselves. But economic realities today dictate that we entrust our loved one’s care to qualified nurses, nursing aids, and facilities.
Despite our efforts to make the most suitable arrangements for our loved ones, these professionals sometimes let us down. Neglect or abuse by nursing home staff could cause your loved one to suffer heartbreaking injuries or consequences, including the following:
- Medication errors
- Falls from bed
- Slip and fall accidents
- Broken hips and other fractures
- Brain and head injuries
- Sexual or financial abuse
Put a West Virginia lawyer on your side
Elderly patients are often unable to speak up about the neglect, abuse, or suffering they are experiencing. And their family members are often unaware of the problem until serious injuries or death result.
At Prim Law Firm, PLLC, our lawyers represent victims of nursing home neglect or abuse in negligence lawsuits against nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or homecare agencies. We are committed to conducting our own investigations and uncovering the pertinent medical evidence and records that enable us to build a case that holds up in court.
Under West Virginia law, doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers can be held liable for deviating from the accepted standard of care. However, medical professionals and their insurance companies are reluctant to settle these cases, often requiring plaintiffs to go to trial.
At Prim Law Firm, PLLC, Attorney Brian Prim is an experienced trial lawyer who represents working class people. In addition to his 12 years of experience, he has the extensive scientific knowledge and network of medical experts necessary to present a strong medical malpractice case.
The West Virginia malpractice lawyers at Prim Law Firm, PLLC have a proven track record of recovering financial compensation for medical malpractice, personal injury, and nursing home abuse cases. Whether through settlement or trial, we are dedicated to holding nursing care facilities responsible for neglect and abuse of our most vulnerable citizens.
