Nursing Home Abuse – Why You Need to Hire an Attorney

When you put your loved one into a nursing home, you trust the staff to provide a safe and comfortable environment, as well as accurate medical care. However, in some cases, the nursing home staff neglect, mistreat, and abuse the elderly patients under their supervision. In fact, it is estimated that 2 million nursing home residents are abused or neglected each year in the United States. Nursing home staff must be held accountable for their gross negligence and disregard for human life.

Although you can file a lawsuit against a nursing home on your own, it is important to seek experienced legal assistance for your case.

Why? There are 3 main reasons:

  • A lawyer can help ensure you meet important deadlines. In South Carolina, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is 3 years. This means you have 3 years from the date of the abuse or neglect, or from the date on which you discovered the abuse or neglect (as long as it is less than 6 years from the date of occurrence), to file a lawsuit. If you miss this deadline, your claim will likely be denied. In order to prevent this situation, it is important to seek the help of a nursing home abuse attorney who can file the necessary paperwork on your behalf in a timely manner.
  • A lawyer can handle complicated legal aspects of your case. Even if the case seems straightforward to you, there may be legal issues that arise down the road. You have enough stress to handle as it is without trying to navigate the complex legal system. Having a knowledgeable attorney to guide you through the process can be extremely helpful in your pursuit of justice. A lawyer can answer your questions, determine your options, and use effective legal strategies for your case. Thus, you should let a professional handle the complex legal issues of your case so you don’t have to.
  • A lawyer can protect your interests against the nursing home facility. Contrary to what you may believe, the nursing home is not trying to uphold justice. They most likely want to defend their business interests and save face in the threat of a lawsuit. Thus, they may try to disprove or deny your allegations and hire their own attorneys to fight you in court. If you are facing them on your own, it can be extremely stressful. However, a tenacious and dedicated lawyer can stand by your side and fight on your behalf to punish the offenders. An attorney can conduct a thorough investigation of the incident, gather evidence to build your case, and defend your claim in the courtroom.
