Every injury claim and nursing home abuse suit is different, with its own set of facts, damages, and types of unlawful conduct from perpetrators.
Your attorney will help you weigh the various factors involved, including the form of abuse that’s been inflicted at the nursing facility, the specific injuries involved, the duration of the abuse, and any current medical costs.
Your lawyer can also help you figure into your case any future medical costs related to the abuse, awards for pain and suffering, punitive damages in some cases, and any other relevant elements.
While the most obvious and most egregious forms of abuse are physical in nature, nursing home residents in New Orleans are also specifically protected from abusive conduct like financial exploitation, coercive taking of property, and more.
There’s no one answer to what a nursing home abuse lawsuit is worth, but you’re far more likely to receive just compensation for your injuries and losses if you work with an experienced attorney to see your case through.
In New Orleans, The Gertler Law Firm has helped our clients recover more than $100,000,000 in damages during our thirty years of representing those who’ve been hurt by others.
