Milwaukee Nursing Home Neglect Attorney

People want to provide the best possible care for their parents as they age, especially when it comes to the medical attention and supervision they may require if they have health problems. Although most people spend significant amounts of time researching and visiting facilities to find the best care, negligence on the part of nursing home employees may result in serious injuries and illness.

Family members who need round-the-clock help and trained medical attention may depend heavily on nursing home professionals to assist them. If a person suffers injury due to negligent or careless actions on the part of nursing home staff members, he or she may be eligible for compensation for medical bills, mental and emotional trauma, and other damages associated with the injury.

  • Residents are not given adequate food or hydration
  • Medical needs are not met
  • Proper hygiene and cleaning is not maintained
  • Assistance is not given when getting up, moving around, or using the bathroom
