Are Your Eligible to File Suit?
Typically, nursing home wrongful death lawsuits are filed by the children of the deceased. However, under certain circumstances, grandchildren, siblings, and other immediate family members can also file suit. The best way to learn if you are eligible to take legal action is through a one-on-one consultation with one of our experienced attorneys.
It is important to remember that wrongful death lawsuits are civil and cannot be used to pursue criminal charges. However, this also means that nursing home staff found innocent of criminal negligence may still be held accountable for civil damages. This is something that can be discussed in greater detail during your free consultation.
