The loss of a loved one is never an easy experience. The anguish you feel over your loss can be significantly compounded by confusion when your loved one passes away unexpectedly, or from unexplained factors. If your loved one passed away under unknown or accidental circumstances while in the care of a nursing home, it may benefit you and your family to speak to an attorney about the situation.
Our Charleston nursing home wrongful death attorneys at Bostic Law Group, P.A. have been assisting families with wrongful death cases since 2000. We understand your needs and have the legal expertise to help you reach the best settlement possible. We always treat our clients with compassion—we will do our best not to overburden you in your time of need while never keeping you in the dark when it comes to important matters.
INVESTIGATING A WRONGFUL DEATH
No family should ever have to learn that their loved one has been abused by the nursing home employees that are supposed to be caring for them. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse and neglect, including circumstances that lead to wrongful death, are common realities in the United States.
Nursing home negligence can lead to many dangerous health conditions that may contribute to the death of a resident, including:
- Infected bed sores
- Over medication
- Improper medication
- Physical abuse
Contacting an attorney immediately after discovering the abuse is the important first step in your journey to bring the abusive employee and the administration that hired them to justice. On your behalf, our staff will conduct a thorough investigation of the events surrounding your loved one’s passing. We will review their medical records with an independent physician to search for contributing factors to their death that could have been avoided. Any evidence demonstrating negligence on behalf of the nursing home will be used to make a wrongful death claim for damages.
PURSUING MORE THAN COMPENSATION
We know that no amount of money will ever replace your loved one; however, pursuing compensation for their loss can help your family cover the expense of their funeral. Aside from compensation, our staff works to help you find justice for your loss and hold those responsible accountable for their negligence. Pursuing justice for your loved one may also help other families avoid the same grief in the future.
We will work to ensure that the abusive employee never harms another resident, and that the state of South Carolina is fully aware of the situation. Through our joint efforts, we may be able to help other families avoid the pain and anguish associated with the abuse of their loved ones. Throughout your proceedings, we offer the support, advice and answers you need during this difficult process, all while working aggressively to help you find resolutions as quickly and painlessly as possible.
To pursue the justice that your family is entitled to, contact us today to set up your legal initial consultation with our compassionate and aggressive legal team.
