Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Your Legal Rights.
Patients and their families can file civil claims seeking monetary compensation for the injuries suffered due to nursing home neglect and abuse. In situations in which a patient dies due to the negligence of the facility, the family can file an Ohio Wrongful Death Claim for the loss of their loved one.
Statute of Limitations for Ohio Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuits.
The statute of limitations for nursing home abuse varies dependent upon whether it was general negligence or medical malpractice. It also varies from state to state. There are strict limitations for filing a nursing home abuse lawsuit. If you miss a deadline, your claim will be denied. To avoid these severe consequences, you should contact an attorney immediately, so an investigation and review of the entire medical history and chart can be completed and the claim commenced.
We Work on a Contingent Fee Agreement.
Our services are contingency based, meaning you do not pay a fee unless we win your case for you or it is settled in your favor. We charge a percentage of the monetary damages secured for you after your case is resolved. We do not collect any fees until you are actually compensated. If we don’t win your case, you pay us nothing – not even the case expenses.
