Nursing Home Negligence in Minnesota
In nursing homes across Minnesota, numerous helpless elderly residents suffer due to abuse and neglect. In many cases, nursing home negligence is the result of understaffing. When nursing homes cut corners by not hiring enough employees, there are simply not enough qualified staff members on hand to adequately monitor and provide care for residents.
Common examples of nursing home injuries include:
- Restraint injuries
- Wandering off (elopement)
- Nursing home falls
- Medication errors
Whatever the cause of nursing home neglect, it is important that victims are removed from danger as quickly as possible.
Victims of nursing home abuse also have the right to pursue compensation for their injuries and losses. Our lawyers can help you explore your legal options and investigate the circumstances of your loved one’s injury. We have a proven record of success obtaining compensation for injury victims throughout Minnesota.
