Personal Injury and Nursing Homes
A nursing home is supposed to be a safe, supportive environment for your loved ones to live out their remaining years. We put a tremendous amount of trust in the nursing home staff members who will be taking care of our parents and grandparents. Unfortunately, too many Phoenix nursing homes betray this trust. Nursing home abuse is unacceptable, and our personal injury attorneys have 25 years of experience fighting for the victims of neglect and misconduct.
You should not have to worry about your loved one’s safety when he or she is staying in a nursing home. There is no excuse for the kind of abuse and neglect our nursing home attorneys see all too often.
Some common causes of personal injuries in nursing homes include:
- Improperly trained workers
- Misuse of chemical and physical restraints
- Physical abuse
- Failure to follow your care plan
Injuries should not be facts of life in a nursing home, and in competently run, well-staffed nursing homes they aren’t. It is possible to run a safe, caring nursing home, and many groups do. That’s why it’s so unacceptable when an administrator fails to maintain basic safety standards.
If you’re a resident of the Phoenix, Arizona area and your loved one has suffered a personal injury as a result of abuse or neglect, you need an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer. Please contact Cullan & Cullan for a free consultation.
