As our population ages, more and more Americans will turn to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to meet their changing medical needs. While most of these facilities provide professional and high-quality care, sometimes nursing home residents are the victims of neglect or even intentional mistreatment. When those charged with caring for others fail to adequately perform their duties, victims may be able to recover by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Nursing homes and other facilities offering long-term care are subject to both state and federal regulation, and there are a number of ways in which these facilities or their staff could potentially violate these laws. If you feel that you or a loved one has been injured by nursing home abuse or neglect, you should be certain to discuss your case with an experienced Framingham nursing home attorney as soon as possible.
