There’s no cut-and-dried template that can be applied to legal actions in nursing home abuse cases in New Orleans.
In general, people who’ve suffered injuries at the hands of nursing home staff or otherwise experienced abuse or neglect in a residential facility can expect that their case will be resolved within a time frame of weeks to months, but there are many variables.
In some instances, we’ll want to expedite the process as much as possible, especially if you or the loved one in residential care are in poor health or had substantial sums of money misappropriated.
In other cases, as when a state investigation is ongoing, it may be beneficial to move the case more slowly in order to maximize your leverage.
These are the types of the considerations that an experienced New Orleans nursing home abuse attorney can help you navigate.
The goal is to achieve a resolution that best meets your needs and gives you the largest payout possible on an injury claim.
Individuals who attempt to negotiate these settlements on their own rarely receive a fair award, and sometimes receive nothing at all for their trouble.
