Suspicious or Unexplained Injuries or Death
Unexplained deaths in nursing homes and other care facilities should be thoroughly investigated. Family members should not accept, at face value, a facility operator’s explanation of the cause of their loved one’s death. The real cause may be abuse or neglect by a staff member or the owners of the home.
If you have questions or doubts about what you were told regarding your family member’s death, call us. We would like to help you learn the truth, and properly address any wrongdoing.
Wrongful Death Lawsuits
In Arizona, anyone who wrongfully causes the death of another may be sued by the deceased person’s spouse, children and parents.
Wrongful death actions that involve the abuse or neglect of nursing home residents allow their family members to recover damages for the pain and suffering their loved one experienced. You also may recover additional sums for attorney’s fees and litigation costs.
