Our elderly are our most vulnerable loved ones and they deserve proper care. But their age and health issues can lead to more time spent with doctors, nursing homes and assisted living facilities, where they can fall victim to medical malpractice, abuse or negligence.
When a health care provider causes an older person injury or worsens their medical condition, the damages can be severe. Medical malpractice results when a doctor, surgeon, nurse, anesthesiologist or pharmacist fails to follow accepted standards of care.
Elderly residents of living facilities can also fall prey to abuse or neglect, but an elder care attorney can help victims understand their rights and fight for their financial compensation.
