Ohio-based personal injury legal blog provides its readers with
informative posts each week to offer them basic knowledge about some of
the most common bases for negligence-based litigation. Mistakes made by
doctors and nurses, accidents that happen on roads and highways, and
harm that befalls victims when they are the properties of other people
are all basic ways that people get hurt due to the actions and inactions
of others. When these and other personal injury-causing situations
occur, though, something worse than injury can result: victims can lose
their lives and suffer wrongful deaths.
A wrongful death is one
that happens due to the careless or reckless actions of another person.
But as readers can likely anticipate, there are more victims in a
wrongful death than just the party that loses his or her life. While
that person had to pay the ultimate price for another person’s
negligent, reckless, or criminal behavior, their loved ones must also go
on without the support of the person who perished.
Nursing homes are widespread across the country. According to the 2014 data from the CDC,
there are approximately 15,600 nursing homes with 1.4 million residents
in the United States. These facilities are necessary for providing
assistance to many senior citizens.
Unfortunately, many nursing home residents suffer injuries. If you know someone in a senior care facility, you should be aware of the common causes of injuries in nursing homes.
