Nursing Home Abuse

The Awful TruthNursing Home Abuse ...

The statistics are sobering. Every year, there are horrible reports of nursing home abuse on the part of care providers we wanted to trust.



Liability ...

Nursing Home abuse is a part of the law of "torts."  Some of these laws are enacted by the legislature and some of them are created by the courts.   When the legislature creates a law it is called a statute.  When a court creates a law it is referred to as the "common law." 

In Tennessee, the law requires a person or business who negligently operates a nursing home and causes injury to pay for any and all damages caused by their negligence.   All Nursing Home operators must drive with reasonable care under the circumstances. If a Nursing Home does not use reasonable care and an accident occurs because of that failure, the Nursing Home is financially responsible for the damages caused by its negligence.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a Nursing Home as a result of the carelessness, negligence or irresponsible behavior of another individual or organization, you probably have a right to bring a personal injury claim. Since most of the time you will suffer some form of loss, you have a claim arising from bodily injuries  sustained as a result of the care or lack of care.
