As with any lawsuit, there’s no set timeframe that applies to every action.
An experienced New Orleans nursing home abuse and neglect lawyer can evaluate the facts of your case to give you a clearer sense of how it’s likely to play out.
There are a variety of factors to be weighed, including the seriousness of injuries, the nursing home’s track record when it comes to violations, and whether state agencies have confirmed allegations of abuse through their own investigations.
Many lawsuits are settled promptly outside of court, providing meaningful compensation to those who’ve suffered at the hands of abusive or negligent nursing home staff or facilities.
There are more difficult cases, where a nursing home may choose to fight allegations of misconduct, which can take longer to reach a settlement or even go to trial.
Legal cases turn on evidence, and an attorney can help you identify the right kinds of evidence and build a clear and compelling case. It’s important to be knowledgeable on the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect.
