Many elderly persons in Mississippi reach a point in their lives when they are no longer capable of living on their own. In such situations, it is not uncommon for adult children to help their parents take up new residences in nursing homes or other assisted living facilities. Nursing home neglect remains a significant problem in many areas, and anyone considering such care will want to conduct careful research ahead of time in order to make informed decisions and the best choices possible.
Even after visiting multiple facilities, studying available statistics and discussing the situation at length before choosing a nursing home, incidents of abuse may still occur. The important thing to realize is that when a medical professional has been negligent in the care provided, and a resident has suffered injury due to that neglect, a personal injury claim may be filed to seek legal accountability against the party deemed responsible. If an injured victim is unable to speak or act on his or her own behalf, an immediate family member may seek authority to do so.
