Kentucky Nursing Home Choking
If your loved one suffered from a serious nursing home injury or died as a result of choking in a Kentucky nursing home, contact us today so we may be able to help you seek fair compensation for your injury or loss.
Nursing home residents often have medical problems or take medications that make it difficult to properly chew or swallow food. Due to this, many are at high risk for choking. Choking, by depriving oxygen to the brain, can cause brain injuries, and even death. While such an injury may appear to be accidental, in some instances choking is a result of nursing home neglect. When this is the case, it is important that nursing homes are held accountable for their fatal mistakes.
All nursing home choking lawsuits are unique, but there can be cases involving residents who had special dietary needs but were fed the wrong food or residents who were not properly monitored by staff while they were eating. These failures often occur when nursing homes do not employ sufficient staff to address the special needs of each of the residents under their care. If you believe that a loved suffered serious injury or death as a result of choking in an Kentucky nursing home, you should take action quickly as there is a limited time in which to act.
No Recovery, No Fee in Nursing Home Injury Cases
We take cases on a contingent basis, meaning that there is generally no cost to you unless we are able to recover a settlement or judgment on your behalf. We also front all litigation costs, meaning you need no money down to hire us as your attorneys. Litigation costs can include filing fees, court reporter fees for deposition, copying costs, experts, and travel. If you recover via trial or settlement, we are reimbursed our fronting of litigation costs out of any damages you are awarded. The actual percentage agreement between our firm and our clients may differ depending on each case. We invite you to contact us to discuss in more detail how we can help you, but please remember if there is no recovery, there is no fee.
