Nursing Home Neglect Cases and Lawsuit Loans
One of the hardest decisions in life comes when it’s time to decide how to best care for an older loved one. For many, that decision ends up with placing their loved one in a nursing home facility. These establishments provide support to the elderly and make sure they are safe.
Or do they? The sad reality is not every nursing home provides the same care. Some cut corners here and there to save money and the people who are hurt most by this are the very people who are supposed to be cared for.
The negligence or even neglect by a nursing home can result in any number of negative conditions. In some cases it can result in painful bedsores to develop or cases of severe malnourishment. Poor treatment can make a resident feel like they are imprisoned in the facility. This can lead to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and other conditions. In a worst case scenario, one home’s wrongdoing could lead to the wrongful death of a loved one.
How Much is My Nursing Home Case Worth?
Since there are many different types of nursing home cases, there is not one answer here. A case where mistreatment of a patient lead to an illness is different than one where the patient developed bedsores and ultimately died. For what it’s worth, there was a study done which showed that, while not every case settled, many of those that did settled on average for more than $400,000 a piece. These cases were concentrated in certain areas of the country, so it does not necessarily mean that your case would settle for that much.
How Long Will My Nursing Home Neglect Case Take?
This one is a little easier to answer, though not as easy to be specific. The answer is it could take a while. Why is that? Insurance companies profit more by NOT settling cases than by paying out large settlements right away. In fact, that is part of the insurance companies’ gameplan. If they can stretch out the lawsuit for a really long time, the plaintiff might get desperate and accept a much smaller settlement than they should. It’s easy to see how they get away with it: insurance companies have more money than plaintiffs.
