Attorney for Wrongful Death in a Nursing Home
Many nursing home deaths are preventable. They may result from abuse or neglect. When a resident’s basic care needs or medical needs are neglected, and the victim dies, family members may benefit from a wrongful death action.
A wrongful death claim is a legal compensation claim. It is brought by the personal representative of the victim on behalf of surviving family members. It is a civil claim seeking a finding of legal responsibility and financial compensation.
Bringing a claim can:
- Result in financial compensation
- Achieve of finding of legal fault for your loved one’s death
- Hold offenders accountable for their actions
- Provide answers and information
- Result in positive changes for others
Too often, care providers hide the true causes of death in a nursing home. They may refuse to answer questions or provide information. Bringing a legal action allows you to investigate, demand records, and talk to witnesses.
At Jordan Law Center, we fully investigate the circumstances of wrongful death on behalf of our clients. Building a case is critical to achieving justice for our clients. Our law firm takes care of everything.

Who May File a Wrongful Death Claim Against a Nursing Home?
An executor may bring a claim on behalf of beneficiaries if the circumstances are such that the victim would have had a personal injury claim if they lived. The standards of negligence are the same for wrongful death as in personal injury cases.
Surviving family members may claim damages proportioned to the injury resulting from the death.
