Decatur Home Healthcare Malpractice Lawyers
Don’t let your loved one suffer in silence
Home healthcare has become increasingly common in recent years. Many older residents hire home healthcare aids to help them since they want to continue to live in their homes, even when they require some additional assistance.
Unfortunately, some home healthcare professionals make mistakes. When they do, the consequences can be serious. Suddenly, you or a loved one can sustain a serious injury or illness due to the reckless or negligent actions of a home healthcare professional.
When this happens, it’s critical that you talk to a home healthcare malpractice lawyer. That’s why we want to meet with you at Kurle Justus, LLC, right away. Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys can explain all the legal options available to you and get straight to work on your case. We know what to do because we’ve been handling complex cases for years.
What are common home healthcare injuries?
Home healthcare injuries due to the negligent or reckless actions of home healthcare workers can cover a wide range. In many cases, these injuries often fall into two main categories:
- Home healthcare abuse
- Home healthcare neglect
More specifically, these injuries often include:
- Broken bones
- Severe infections
- Injuries due to medication errors
- Injuries due to unskilled home healthcare workers
- Injuries due to lack of attention, neglect
- Injuries or illnesses due to misdiagnosis of medical issue by a home healthcare worker
People hired to care for someone in their home need to undergo rigorous training. When their actions (or inaction) result in a serious injury to yourself or a loved one, it’s critical that you take strong legal action to protect your rights and hold them accountable for their actions. That’s our job and we would be honored to work with you.
What makes home healthcare injury cases complicated?
Home healthcare injury cases often turn out to be complicated legal cases. Some of the reasons why include:
- The home healthcare worker denies doing anything wrong.
- The home healthcare worker claims you or your loved one caused the injury.
- The home healthcare worker destroys evidence related to your case.
- The home healthcare agency’s insurance company denies your claim.
The stakes are often very high when it comes to home healthcare injury claims. Depending on the severity of the injury or illness, medical expenses can add up fast, sometimes totaling thousands or even millions of dollars. That’s the reason why so many home healthcare agencies fight these claims and often hire a team of attorneys to defend their actions.
