When Insufficient Security Puts Your Loved One at Risk
In the context of nursing home negligence, elopement happens when a resident is able to wander off the grounds without supervision or gain access to a restricted area of the facility. In either case, the resident can be placed in an extremely dangerous situation. This can be especially true for residents living with dementia who may not know how to find their way back into the facility.
The nursing home's front desk and security staffs have the responsibility to make sure that residents remain safe at all times. If your loved one was injured or killed due to the lack of supervision at a nursing home, you should speak to a qualified attorney as soon as possible. At the law firm of John K. Zaid & Associates, PLLC, we have experience handling all types of cases involving nursing home negligence.
Working to Ensure Your Loved One's Safety
When we accept your case, we take the time to conduct a complete investigation into how the incident occurred. We look into any prior occurrences of elopement at the facility and any citations for similar incidents. We review security procedures for the facility and work to determine if those policies may be a contributing factor to your loved one's incident. If they are, we will work to have system-wide policy changes included in any settlement.
We will seek the maximum level of compensation available in your loved one's case, including medical care for injuries, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and any other damages appropriate to your case. We will be there with you from start to finish, working diligently to see that your loved one's rights are fully protected.
