Don't Let Nursing Homes Sacrifice Residents for Their Bottom Line
Nursing home injuries are a growing problem in the United States. As the population has aged, competitiveness in the nursing home industry has increased. Given the vulnerability of the nursing home population, some homes have permitted some genuinely horrible abuses in the pursuit of business returns.
There are no excuses for mistreatment of residents in nursing homes, whether it is intentional, reckless or merely negligent. Injured residents — and, in the case of wrongful death, their families — have a right to seek compensation under Virginia law.
If you've suffered an injury due to abuse or neglect in a nursing home, contact us to learn what your rights are and how a qualified personal injury lawyer can help you assert them.
Medical Malpractice Caps Do Not Apply
Although medical care may be provided in a nursing home, the nursing home itself and its employees are not considered medical providers under Virginia's medical malpractice law.
That means the state's unique cap on medical malpractice verdicts does not apply to most nursing home injuries. We will help you pursue the full amount of damages necessary to compensate you for your injuries.
