What is a Nursing Home Injury Claim in St. Louis?

Personal injury cases that deal with nursing home injuries are the last thing you want to address. These are personal on a different level than slipping and falling, especially when the victim is an older relative or friend confined to a nursing home. Like a medical professional’s “do no harm,” nursing homes and their staff are responsible for following “duty of care” procedures that include adequate hygiene, food, medical services, and other amenities to ensure the protection and care of patients. There are a number of reasons nursing home injury may make an appearance in a personal injury case. More often than not, these are related to bad training, abuse from staff or others, or intentional neglect.

According to these statistics, more than one-third of any elder care facility has violated federal standards. The numbers are staggering. 40 percent of residents have reported abuse to varying degrees and a large portion of nursing home staff have been cited with verbal abuse. If you have a loved one in a home and decide to take action, Dixon Injury Lawyers are willing to work with you in an effort to settle these terrible violations.

Do Dixon’s nursing home injury attorneys have fees? Dixon doesn’t charge any legal fees. Instead, it follows a contingency-based plan. This means a percentage of any damages will go towards paying the firm.

How are nursing home injury trials different from other personal injury claims? Nursing home-related cases involve entire institutions more often than individuals. The sorts of abuse are different than breaking your leg on a staircase, too.

How much can I win in a nursing home injury case? That entirely depends on the circumstances, the scope, and how effective your nursing home injury lawyers are at defending the victim.

What if I lose the claim? You don’t really “lose” personal injury cases. Typically, you either accept a partial settlement or the case is dismissed. Appeals are a different matter.
