Getting Started with Your Texas Elder Abuse Case
For some, pursuing compensation can be part of the healing process and a way to seek closure. Wherever you find yourself, an attorney can help you understand the technicalities of the law to evaluate the best course of action for your specific circumstances.
Whether your loved one has been afflicted by a slip and fall; trip and fall; bed sores; infection; failure to provide treatment; misdiagnosis; failure to diagnose; improper training; understaffing; physical abuse; sexual abuse; financial abuse; or another calamity, you may have a valid case.
Compensation You May Be Awarded
In far too many cases of nursing home abuse, the elderly requires long-term medical care and treatment to recover from injury and/or illness. Hospitalization, medication, surgery, physical therapy, psychotherapy, and other medical expenses may be obtained from negligent parties through a claim or lawsuit. Getting this money can help relieve families of stress regarding how they will be able to pay for the treatment their loved one needs in the short or long term.
Damages may also be obtained for various forms of emotional distress for the elderly individual as well as family members. These are frequently the most challenging consequences of elder abuse and neglect to overcome. For families whose loved one suffered wrongful death at a nursing home, facility, or hospital, they may receive compensation for the pain and suffering their loved one endured in addition to what they have and may continue to go through emotionally.
For families, it is not about the money. It is about holding careless parties accountable and preventing others from suffering a similar fate.
