Nursing homes and other special care facilities are required to adhere to federal and state rules and regulations. These laws were set in place to protect residents from various forms of abuse and neglect. They also impose harsh penalties onto facilities if they disregard these laws and fail to provide the necessary standard of care that is expected.
Whether you or a loved one was the victim of nursing home abuse, it is important to understand your legal rights and what is required on your part to hold the at-fault party liable for your damages. If you plan to file a nursing home liability claim against the wrongdoer(s), one of the most crucial steps is knowing the statute of limitations for your particular situation. Having a licensed attorney review your claim is highly recommended if you wish to pursue the full and fair amount of compensation you may legally deserve.
