When you placed your loved one in an Iowa nursing home you expected they provide your parents with a comfortable and safe place, a place they could get the quality nursing home care and the personal attention that was assured you. When a nursing home engages in neglect, abuse or dangerous behaviors that lead to the death of the resident in their care, the survivors are entitled to a wrongful death claim remedy. Iowa nursing home negligence attorney Marc Humphrey will hold negligent nursing homes accountable and will diligently represent you to recover full and fair compensation for your loss.
Wrongful death happens at nursing homes from many causes – from medication errors, falls and bone fractures, infections, improperly treated bedsores and wound care, to even strangulation from bed rails or bed frames.
Nursing homes are constantly looking to reduce overhead, expenses and to achieve this, often pay nursing home staff lower wages or hire lesser qualified staff for the jobs once done by better qualified and higher paid staff. As a result of the lower wages and poorly trained staff, the quality of the care nursing home residents is decreasing, and the chance for nursing home residents to be injured or die is increasing. Nursing home residents are now more susceptible to injuries, infections, and other types of illness and trauma. Without the proper medical attention and personal care by trained professional staff, nursing home residents are unnecessarily put at increased risk for personal injury or death.
Marc humphrey understands the sensitivity of these cases. You can rely on Marc to devote the highest level of compassion, care, preparation and personal attention, so that while you grieve and take care of all of the personal matters, Marc will take full responsibility for handling your wrongful death claim or personal injury lawsuit. No amount of monetary compensation will adequately compensate you for your personal loss, but Marc Humphrey will use his three decades of experience to ensure that the nursing home is held accountable for the negligent actions that caused the wrongful death of your family member.
