Negligent Security in Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Residences

Nursing homes and assisted living residences accommodate the elderly and younger persons who have physical and mental disabilities. These persons tend to require constant care, and they are particularly vulnerable to danger. Thus, it is crucial that owners and managers of nursing homes and assisted living facilities provide adequate security and take reasonable steps to prevent residents from foreseeable harm. The sad reality is that they do not always do that, and a person injured could be entitled to compensation when that is the case.

Negligent security cases typically involve an injury suffered as a result of a criminal attack (in most instances, violent crimes like robbery, beatings or sexual assault). Seniors and those with disabilities are especially susceptible to serious injuries from these attacks because they may already have a physical weakness or illness and be completely defenseless. Even with medical insurance, medical treatments and rehabilitation can wreak financial havoc on the victim and his or her family. Compensation can ease that financial burden.

What to do if injured:

If you or a loved one has been attacked and injured in a nursing home or assisted living residence, take the following steps:

  • Get immediate medical care.
  • Call the police and report the attack.
  • If you feel that you might have been injured because of negligent or inadequate security, call a personal injury lawyer.
