Nursing Home Lawyer In Minnesota
It’s a difficult decision to choose a nursing home, assisted living facility or home caregiver for your loved one. What if you discover that your family member is being mistreated, neglected or abused? Unfortunately, a few nursing homes, assisted living facilities or extended care facilities seem adequate on the surface but do not meet the reasonable standards of care that you’d expect for your elderly or ill relative or friend. One study from Michigan State University found that 24.3% of nursing home residents had experienced physical abuse from staff members. If you find that abuse or neglect has occurred, you can get help from an experienced nursing home abuse law firm.
Examples of Abuse
Some cases, such as physical or sexual abuse against a weak or ill patient, are so shocking that there’s no question that they constitute abuse. Far more often, nursing home abuse is more subtle but can be extremely damaging to your loved one’s physical and mental health. These types of abuse include:
- Neglecting personal hygiene needs, such as bathing and toileting
- Failing to provide adequate food and water
- Allowing bedsores or pressure ulcers to form due to neglect
- Verbally abusing the patient
- Permitting facilities to become rundown, leading to personal injury

The Wall Street Journal reports that trial lawyers are a dying breed, estimating that 97% of cases settle before trial, and fewer and fewer personal injury lawyers have any meaningful trial experience. Insurance companies know who your lawyer is and what your lawyer is willing to do for you.
