Pre-Settlement Funding for Nursing Home Wrongful Death CasesMarch 31, 2016
When they look back on it now, the “Hernandez” family (not real persons) see the signs as clear as day.
Maria, the matriarch of the household, had been reluctant to go into a nursing home, but the strain of taking care of her combined with her declining mental state had become too much of a burden on a family with two full-time workers and two middle-school-aged children. After weeks of research and too many trips to count, the Hernandez family, with heavy hearts, put Maria into her new home where she could receive the care she needed.
A few weeks went by before their weekly visits to Maria began to become strange. She complained of mistreatment and abuse, of being left alone for hours or having her possessions rifled through and sometimes stolen. She had what looked like bed sores beginning to form, and, once, the family noticed inexplicable bruising on her arms. However, her declining mental health and the unthinking cruelty of the alleged maltreatment kept the family from taking her at her word at first.
When they received the call that she had died, they wished they had taken her allegations more seriously.
Maria’s death was avoidable; the elder abuse and professional negligence she was subjected to played a role in her demise. Angered and heartbroken, the Hernandez family took the nursing home company to court by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
With decent evidence and the desire to see her abusers punished, the Hernandez family took on the unexpected burden of legal bills. With the nursing home company and their team of lawyers fighting them tooth and nail, the family worried they would have to drop the civil suit, as they could not afford to pay legal bills for the foreseeable future. The family’s lawyer told them to call USClaims, in order to be able to continue the fight.
