California, Nevada and Arizona Wrongful Death Attorneys
Understaffing in a retirement community can result in the staff failing to give your loved one the personal attention necessary. The staff may leave your loved one in a bed or sitting in a wheelchair unattended, without shifting his or her position or checking for pressure points. As a result, bedsores and other pressure sores may develop. Inadequate treatment of the wounds leads to serious infection that ultimately weakens your loved one's immune system and brings about a wrongful death.
This is just one instance of negligence that may lead to the sudden wrongful death of elderly patients in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, retirement communities and other adult communities. At The Brandi Law Firm, we investigate the circumstances surrounding your loved one's death and hold any negligent parties accountable. Contact us to discuss you matter with our experienced, compassionate wrongful death lawyers.
When a parent, grandparent, spouse, sibling or other relative dies in a nursing home care facility, it may at first appear to be due to natural causes. While this is, in fact, the case for many residents, our elder law attorneys take a closer look at what happened. Was it a wrongful death? Our attorneys examine your loved one’s situation and help you determine what action you should take. We evaluate if the death was caused by an underlying problem such as an untreated bed sore or infection, malnutrition or dehydration or other negligence-related problem.
Preserving Dignity ∙ Pursuing Justice
Elder Negligence ∙ Physical Abuse ∙ Other Abuse or Neglect
Many families do not find out that their loved ones were mistreated in a nursing home until it is too late to stop the neglect and abuse. At The Brandi Law Firm, we believe consumers are entitled to dignity and respect, regardless of their age or capacity. When an assisted living facility or retirement community fails to provide such respect through their abuse or negligence, we hold the nursing home staff and facility accountable.
Our elder abuse attorneys speak for people who no longer have a voice, and bring closure and some measure of peace to their families. Under certain circumstances, the families of wrongful death victims can recover compensation for their loved one’s pain and suffering, loss of companionship and guidance, and personal anguish over the manner of death, and in some cases collect punitive damages and attorneys’ fees in a wrongful death lawsuit.
