Pursuing a personal injury claim for nursing home neglect

No one wants to think that their loved ones might be abused or neglected in a nursing home in Connecticut. Unfortunately, the sad reality is that these instances of negligence and recklessness do occur with disturbing frequency. Just imagine going to visit an elderly relative at a nursing home this holiday season and seeing them with unexplained bruises, bedsores or other injuries. What can be done about these instances of abuse and neglect?

One option is to explore the possibility of a personal injury lawsuit. The area of personal injury law is vast, with many different types of accidents and injuries falling within this particular field: car accidents, workplace injuries, property accidents and - yes - nursing home abuse and neglect. In a personal injury lawsuit based on nursing home abuse or neglect, the victim - or surviving relatives, if the incident resulted in death - will need to prove that a duty existed between the nursing home and the resident, that the duty was breached and that the breach of duty resulted in injuries.

However, proving a personal injury case can be difficult. The injured party will need evidence to prove the case, which can include physical evidence, photographs and eyewitness testimony. But, with the right approach, victims of nursing home abuse and neglect can recover financial compensation for their injuries.
