Nursing Home Abuse Overview
There are a number of tragic fatalities that can result in a wrongful death of an elderly person. Nursing home abuse, neglect and malpractice can often lead to a death of a loved one. Furthermore, slip and fall accidents can also lead to a serious fall that may result in fatality.
Winning a wrongful death case will not make the pain go away. However, it can help you focus on your future and ensure the financial protection your family needs during this time. Financial compensation can help pay for the following:
- A loss of companionship
- A loss of guidance
- A loss of monetary contributions
- A loss of affection
- Emotional suffering
- A loss of income if taking time off work to grieve
- Any costs of therapy, medication and other recovery methods
It can also provide a sense of closure and justice for the wrongdoing.
Coping with the Loss
Losing your mother or father in a tragic wrongful death will not only impact the surviving children but can also cause emotional hardship to the surviving spouse as well as any grandchildren or great grandchildren. It is important to take time off to grieve properly as a family. You may need to make alternative living arrangements for the widow and you will need to be the rock for your entire family.
