Oklahoma City Attorney Representing Victims of Wrongful Death in a Nursing Home
The death of a parent or family member in a nursing home can be a devastating experience, especially when the circumstances of the death are unexplained. Sometimes, people undergo a steep health decline within a year of entering a nursing home for a condition that was not considered life threatening. For family members, the question is why?
At the law office of Joseph J. Reinke, our Oklahoma City nursing home attorneys represent families who lose loved ones due to the negligence of other parties. If your loved one has died in a nursing home and you are not satisfied with the answers the institution has given you, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and your options.
Some Nursing Home Deaths Are Avoidable
When the elderly person dies in a nursing home, many people attribute the death to old age and assume that the nursing did everything it could to care for the resident. People rarely suspect that neglect or abuse may has contributed to their loved one's death.
Some of the signs of neglect or abuse may include:
- Bedsores that become infected
- Dehydration or malnutrition
- Medication errors
- Suffocation due to restraints
- Falls resulting in bone fractures
- Wandering away from the facility (or elopement)
If after an initial review, we believe that substantial questions exist about your family member's death, our lawyers will work with qualified medical experts to get you the answers you need. If nursing home neglect or abuse contributed to your loved one's death, our attorneys will seek compensation for the loss your family has experienced.
We handle all wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis, so until our lawyers win a favorable judgment or settlement in your case, you will not have to pay attorney fees.
