Providing Dedicated Nursing Home Malpractice Counsel

Nurse And Physician Negligence In Nursing Homes

When a parent or loved one requires nursing home care, you expect that the nurses and doctors will provide adequate and timely medical care. You also expect that your family member's basic needs, such as food and water, will be met. When proper attention and examination is not given to nursing home patients, they may quickly develop ailments and illnesses that can be painful, dangerous and even deadly.

While there are thousands of caring and qualified nursing home professionals in California, these nurses and doctors are not infallible. Mistakes and accidents happen. In some cases, there may be evidence of a willful negligence on behalf of nursing home staff and doctors. However, in most cases these are caring and hardworking people who have simply made a mistake. Regardless, even if an honest mistake caused your elder parent or loved one injury, your family is entitled to compensation.

Bringing A Claim For Nurse Or Physician Negligence

Nursing home abuse and neglect claims can be complex to process. The facility may be hesitant to admit fault, and the insurance company will require detailed and valid evidence supported by legal arguments. This is why it is vital to consult with a lawyer as soon as possible after the injury occurs or becomes known.

At the Law Offices of Michael R. Kaiser, we address a wide range of nursing home negligence claims, including those involving:

  • Failure to summon medical help in a timely fashion
  • Failure to transport to emergency room in a timely fashion
  • Failure to monitor and examine patients
  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • Failure to chart food and fluid intake
  • Failure to investigate loss of appetite
  • Failure to assist with feeding
  • Failure to give IV/feeding tube
  • Undiagnosed medical condition such as influenza or bedsores
  • Failure to provide medical intervention for known medical problems

Mr. Kaiser is an experienced attorney, bringing more than 40 years of practice to each case. He takes a proactive approach to all personal injury claims and seeks to engage insurers early on. Through professional and productive discussions, he has had great success in negotiating fair and favorable insurance awards for past patients. In the event that negotiation attempts fail, Mr. Kaiser is also highly skilled in mediated and litigated resolutions.
