Wrongful Death In A Nursing Home

You have every right to be upset. The care facility you trusted to take care of your loved one failed to do so, and it resulted in an extreme loss — the loss of someone you care about.

Many of our clients at Albukerk & Associates come into the office wanting two things: someone to answer for the negligence that took place and compensation for wrongful death. Success in such a case hinges on well-documented evidence and an undeniable connection between nursing home negligence or abuse and your loved one's fatal injuries.

What Kind Of Compensation Can I Pursue For Wrongful Death?

No amount of money can replace what you have lost, but it can help ease the burden of financial costs and personal challenges you face as a result. An effective wrongful death lawsuit can help you recover compensation for:

  • Medical treatment that arose as a result of negligence or abuse, leading up to the time of death
  • The deceased person's pain and suffering prior to passing away
  • End-of-life expenses, including funeral and burial expenses
  • The deceased's lost wages prior to passing away
  • Loss of companionship and guidance for family members

In some cases, the at-fault party is a single caregiver who failed to uphold the standards of care. In others, there is a pervasive issue with the nursing home or adult care facility.

No matter what entity is to blame, we can develop a well-documented case that brings to light issues of pervasive negligence and violations of nursing home care standards.
