Senior living communities are safe spaces for our elderly and disabled loved ones to live and recover from injuries. Too often are loved ones abused and neglected by the staff at these communities, causing serious problems like unnecessary falls, broken bones, and bed sores. You’re loved ones should not have to endure this kind of treatment by senior living staff that’s why there are state and federal laws in place to help prevent tragedies from occurring. If a community fails to follow the rules and laws in place, and the resident is injured, the resident and/or their family are entitled to compensation for their injuries.
Our attorneys at Gingras, Thomsen and Wachs will fight to get you the justice your family deserves. For more than 35 years, we’ve represented families across Eau Claire and helped them get compensation for wrongful treatment.
If your or a loved one has been injured due to nursing home neglect, you may receive payment for:
- Health care costs for treatment of his or her injuries
- Out of pocket expenses related to the injury including prescriptions, co-pays, deductibles, over-the counter medications like Advil® or Tylenol®, braces, wheelchairs, walkers, special equipment, etc.
- Mileage or transportation expenses to and from health care appointments
- Your past and future pain and suffering, disability, and/or disfigurement
