These injuries can happen be the result of abuse and/or negligence in a nursing home or rehab facility. If you have reason to believe this has happened to a loved one contact the Krupp Law Firm so that we can help them and you.

The National Center For Elder Abuse website reports, according to the National Ombudsman Reporting System (NORS) data, within the year 2014, 14,258 (7.6%) of approximately 188,599 complaints reported to Ombudsman programs involved abuse, gross neglect, or exploitation.

Only 1 in 14 nursing home abuse cases were actually reported to authorities. Abuse and negligence in nursing homes are highly under reported. U.S. Department Of Health and Human Services, Inspector General report estimates that one-in-five high-risk hospital emergency room Medicare claims for treatment provided during the 2016 calendar year were the result of potential abuse or neglect, including injury of unknown source, of beneficiaries residing in skilled nursing facilities.

Proving Liability Can Be Complicated

Even if you are certain that your loved one has been harmed because of nursing home neglect, you still have an uphill battle to successfully prove your claim and recover money damages.

A few reasons may include:

  1. aging residents are expected to suffer a decline in health.
  2. victims are often unable to articulate their mistreatment by testifying, or they've passed on.
  3. it will be difficult to prove due to lack of evidence. Even if the nursing home neglects or abuses your loved they won't keep any record of it.

This is why it is so important you contact an experienced attorney that focuses on these kind of cases. The Krupp Law Firm has more than 30 years serving the residents of St. Louis and St. Charles counties.
