Wrongful death lawsuit accuses nursing home of negligence

As people age, they often require more and more medical interventions and care as part of their everyday lives. While families in New Jersey desire to provide this care themselves, they can quickly become overwhelmed by the increasing needs of their loved one. As a result, they put their faith into a nursing home facility. Unfortunately, one woman in another state feels that her faith was misplaced. In a wrongful death lawsuit, she claims that negligence on the part of the facility caused her mother's death.

The woman claims that, in Dec. 2015, her mother became a resident of the facility named as plaintiff in the case. Unfortunately, it is claimed that the facility did not provide adequate supervision. As a result, the woman's mother allegedly suffered a fall less than a month after she became a resident.

The lawsuit claims that the fall caused significant injuries that ultimately proved fatal. The woman passed away in May 2016. The lawsuit seeks punitive and actual damages as well as litigation costs..

Regardless of the person's age, it is never easy to lose a parent. The thought that the loss may be due to negligence on the part of those entrusted to provide appropriate care can make such an incident feel even more tragic. For those, a wrongful death lawsuit may be one of the few options to help ensure that those responsible for their loss are held accountable. An attorney with experience with such cases can help victims in New Jersey fully understand their options and pursue an appropriate legal remedy.
