Which Nursing Home Injuries Result in Claims?

A. Injuries or death that occur in Kentucky nursing homes and which result from negligence, mistake, carelessness, neglect or abuse are some of the types of injuries that form the basis of nursing home injury or nursing home wrongful death cases in Kentucky.

First, it's unfortunate, but occasionally the police need to be called. There are also governmental entities such as the Attorney General's Office and the Adult Protective Services that can come in and investigate claims. Also, a Kentucky lawyer that handles nursing home injury, nursing home neglect and nursing home abuse cases may be consulted.
