Nursing home abuse and neglect can lead to adverse health outcomes and large medical expenses.
Victims of abuse and neglect at a Middletown nursing home may suffer from, for example:
Connecticut law entitles nursing home abuse victims to seek compensation for all costs associated with addressing changes in their medical condition, including hospitalization, medication, and surgical procedures. At The Flood Law Firm, we gather evidence to calculate past medical expenses due to abuse and neglect and to estimate the cost of a victim’s future medical needs. We aim to ensure that our clients have the financial support to address all of the health detriments they’ve suffered.
Frequently, a nursing home resident subjected to abuse or neglect will want or need to move to a different facility to ensure their safety and well-being. Moving can be expensive, particularly if the resident needs an elevated level of care or specialty transportation to accommodate their fragile health condition.
Residents who suffered harm due to abuse and neglect should not have to absorb that extra cost. We work to ensure that they don’t.
The Flood Law Firm pursues compensation for every expense borne by a Middletown nursing home resident due to abuse or neglect, including relocation and transportation, loss of personal property, and services to ensure they do not suffer further trauma from the disruption of a move.
In addition to recovering expenses and financial losses, victims of Middletown nursing home abuse or neglect can also demand compensation for the non-monetary (or non-economic) harm they’ve suffered. Lawyers refer to this category of recoverable damages as pain and suffering.
It encompasses an abuse or neglect victim’s:
Pain and suffering damages can be substantial in a Middletown nursing home abuse or neglect case. Nursing home residents are vulnerable victims, and the harm done to them by abuse or neglect constitutes an egregious breach of trust by the parties at fault. At The Flood Law Firm, we fight to secure the maximum pain and suffering damages possible. Money cannot right a wrong, but it can deliver a measure of justice and comfort to innocent victims of nursing home abuse and neglect.
Sometimes, an instance of abuse or neglect can lead to the death of a Middletown nursing home resident. In those tragic instances, under Connecticut law, the executor or administrator of the victim’s estate may sue the party (or parties) at fault for wrongful death.
If you or a loved one has suffered abuse or neglect in Middletown, you have up to two years to file a claim for compensation for the damages caused by those negligent actions. However, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible to better understand how to protect your rights.
Around 1,700 nursing home abuse complaints get reported across Connecticut each year. Each time a victim reports abuse, the state investigates the claim and the nursing home.
Many people worry about rising instances of elder abuse across Connecticut in recent years. A rise in the elderly population across the state has placed more strain on resources designed to help protect and support them.
Abuse and neglect can take several forms.
Your loved one may have the right to compensation after any type of abuse or neglect in a nursing home setting.
Neglect can occur for a number of reasons.
The nursing home often bears liability for neglect committed by its staff members. In addition, if the nursing home uses an outside staffing agency, especially for on-call support, the staffing agency may bear liability for an incident caused by its staff.
A nursing home abuse or neglect lawyer at The Flood Law Firm can determine who bears liability for the abuse your loved one sustained and how you can pursue compensation.
If your loved one suffers abuse in a nursing home, you might assume that the insurance company will step up to handle the incident, including providing fair compensation for the abuse and the medical bills that followed. Unfortunately, many nursing homes and insurance companies will act to protect the company’s interests, not the individual’s.
The insurance company may:
Dealing with the insurance company can cause a great deal of stress both to the elderly abuse victim and to any members of the family helping with the claim process.
At The Flood Law Firm, we have the resources needed to take on those insurance companies head-on, and we fight aggressively to recover just compensation for our clients’ losses. Let us handle your Middletown nursing home abuse or neglect claim on your behalf.
If your loved one suffered abuse or neglect in a Middletown nursing home, your family may need to make arrangements for medical care.
You can, however, use your loved one’s medical insurance, including Medicare or Medicaid coverage, to help with the cost of those medical bills. Filing an injury claim against the party responsible for that abuse or neglect can help you pay those bills.
If you have any reason to suspect that your loved one has suffered abuse in a nursing home, start by reporting your suspicions immediately. Talk to the nursing home staff, including members of the management team.
Sometimes, abuse occurs without awareness at the higher levels within the organization. Reporting abuse or neglect can help protect your loved one.
