How is the value of a nursing home abuse case calculated?
Because no two cases are precisely the same, it is impossible to guarantee any particular result in a nursing home abuse and neglect lawsuit.
Our nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys consider a wide range of factors when estimating the value of a nursing home abuse or neglect legal claim. We will look at prior cases involving similar conduct and injuries and consider a number of other factors, such as:
- Severity of injury
- Medical bills and rehabilitation expenses
- The degree to which fault is apparent
- Impact on one’s marital relationship
- Limitations on quality of life and activities following injury
- The egregiousness of the conduct by the nursing home
- Severity of pain and suffering
- Duration of incapacity caused by injury
These are some of the types of facts that will impact the value of a nursing home abuse or neglect lawsuit or settlement. Because no two cases are precisely the same, it is impossible to guarantee any particular result in a nursing home abuse and neglect lawsuit. However, we carefully analyze the facts and review prior cases to provide estimates regarding the potential value of a claim.
