Our North Carolina injury lawyers wrote this in-depth report on nursing home abuse and neglect for both the victims of the nursing home abuse and their senior loved ones. We want people to be aware of the warning signs for abuse, negligence or any act of malpractice or neglect leading to deaths at nursing homes.

What is the relevant nursing home negligence statute of limitations?—we address the relevant statute of limitations for nursing home negligence cases, and for wrongful death claims. In addition, we examine various types of nursing home negligence and abuse in the report so you are aware of what to look our for when you are visiting your loved one:

  • Slips and falls leading to broken bones and fractured hips
  • Pressure sores/ulcers
  • Over-medication
  • Malnourishment
  • Dehydration
  • Violations of federal nursing home law
  • Negligent acts constituting nursing malpractice
  • Neglect by failing to act, leading to injury or wrongful death (wrongful death is simply any act of nursing home malpractice, abuse or neglect directly resulting in death)

In addition to examining the various types of abuse and neglect, our experienced North Carolina nursing home negligence lawyers address what legal options may be available to you. Keep in mind, if you have suspicions, it is important to take action. The worst thing you can do is ignore those suspicions out of fear or hesitation. Why? Because if you're mistaken, the ramifications are likely to be minimal. If you're correct, then immediate steps need to be taken to halt the abuse or neglect and legal action should be pursued against the facility and its owner.
