A civil lawsuit against the facility can result in a substantial settlement that will provide proper care for your loved one.
Baby Boomers now make up about fifteen percent of the population in the United States. By the year 2029, people 65 and older will represent about 20 percent of the U.S. population. The need for quality nursing homes is greater than ever. The unfortunate fact is that abuse and neglect in nursing homes increases with the number of seniors admitted to these homes.
Nursing homes are not cheap, even with subsidies paid in party by Medicaid or Medicare. Despite this, the facilities often lack the personnel and resources to provide sufficient quality care for residents. As a result, neglect can occur. When it is not resolved immediately and completely, the resident’s loved ones may have only one choice when seeking to resolve the issues and hold the nursing home accountable. With an elder care abuse lawyer in Phoenix AZ from Rispoli Law, PLLC by your side, you can pursue litigation against the facility.

ALWAYS SAY 'NO' TO ARBITRATION
Should you find it necessary to enroll yourself or a loved one in a nursing home or other long term care facility, it is absolutely critical that you NEVER sign an arbitration agreement. These documents are not a pre-condition for admission, despite what any facility representative tells you, and are often lumped in with the stack of paperwork you are required to sign during the admission process. These types of arbitration agreements are designed to protect the facility from being held fully responsible for any negligence should it occur during the stay at the facility. More and more people are starting to wake up to the rampant abuse of forced arbitration in nursing homes and pressuring the government to end the practice.
