You love your family and you want to do whatever you can for them. When your loved ones get older it is harder to help them, as they tend to need more constant care. In most cases your house isn’t big enough to accommodate another person, or you do not have the financial means to quit your job and take care of your loved one full time. Which is why many Denver families turn to nursing homes. This way they can still work, and care for their families, while their loved one does not suffer. Nursing homes allow for your loved one to have constant care with whatever needs their situation has. While nursing homes seem to be a great option, they can also come with some difficulties. Donaldson Law, LLC are a personal injury law firm in Denver who help those who have had not so great experiences with nursing homes. Legal action can be taken if your loved one was abused or neglected in the care of the nursing home facility.
When people age they can need a variety of help in their daily lives. Sometimes the elderly need assistance with eating, drinking, and walking, all things we take for granted. If you had to put someone in a nursing home, and the staff fails to help your loved one with basic tasks that they need assistance with, you can call a Denver nursing home abuse attorney. Your loved one does not deserve to be neglected or treated poorly. You can fight for compensation for medical bills if the neglect or abuse warranted a hospital visit, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and even wrongful death damages if the neglect caused your loved one to pass.
