Unexplained Loss of a Loved One

The loss of a loved one is never an easy experience. Unfortunately, the anguish you feel over your loss may be compounded by confusion when your loved one passes away unexpectedly, or from unexplained factors. If your loved one passed away under unexplained circumstances while in the care of a nursing home, it may benefit your family to speak to an attorney about the situation.

Nursing home negligence can lead to many dangerous health conditions that may contribute to the death of a resident, including:

  • Infected bed sores
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Overmedication
  • Improper medication
  • Physical abuse

On your behalf, our staff will conduct a thorough investigation of the events surrounding your loved oneís passing and will review all of their medical records with an independent physician to search for contributing factors to their death that could have been avoided. Any evidence demonstrating negligence on behalf of the nursing home will be used to make a wrongful death claim for damages.

Pursuing More than Compensation

We know that no amount of money will ever replace your loved one; however, pursuing compensation for their loss can help your family cover the expense of their funeral. More than compensation, our staff works to help you find justice for your loss and hold those responsible accountable for their negligence. Pursuing justice for your loved one may also help other familyís avoid the same grief in the future.

Throughout your proceedings, we offer the support, advice and answers you need during this difficult process, all while working aggressively to help you find resolutions as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Aggressively Pursuing Justice for Abused Nursing Home Residents

No family should ever have to learn that their loved one has been abused by the nursing home employees that are supposed to be caring for them. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse does occur more often than any of us may wish to believe. Contacting an attorney immediately after discovering the abuse is the important first step in your quest to bring the abusive employee and the administration that hired them to justice.

More than compensation, we will also help you pursue justice for your loved one; we will work to insure that the abusive employee never harms another resident, and that the state of South Carolina is fully aware of the situation. Through our joint efforts, we may be able to help other families avoid the pain and anguish associated with the abuse of their loved ones.
