Nursing Home Negligence



Western Wisconsin Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers

Has your parent or grandparent been injured while living at a nursing home or under some other form of nursing care? Do you believe the injury was caused by nursing home abuse or neglect? You may have the right to pursue compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills and other costs. The office of Egan & Richgels, S.C. can help you pursue all of the compensation that your loved one deserves.

We have more than 30 years of experience serving nursing home accident victims in La Crosse and the surrounding parts of western Wisconsin, as well as Winona and the surrounding parts of southeast Minnesota. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for people just like you.

Results in All Types of Nursing Home Cases

Our attorneys handle all types of nursing home neglect and abuse claims, including:

  • Bedsores resulting from the failure to frequently reposition a person
  • Fractures resulting from falls caused by failure to properly monitor a person
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Unexplained traumatic injuries likely caused by physical abuse

Bedsores in Nursing Homes and Elsewhere

Bedsores, also known as pressure sores or decubitus ulcers, are very serious, particularly for elderly people. They can be very deep wounds that are difficult to heal. Frequently, they are made worse by infections.

Bedsores are often suffered by elderly people who are bedridden and not property repositioned or by people who are not moved from wheelchairs. In many cases, the victim is paralyzed and may not even feel the wound developing. We take action against the nursing staff hired to prevent these wounds.

Prevent Future Instances of Neglect and Abuse

While the primary goal of a nursing home injury claim is to get compensation for the victim, these claims also have another extremely important benefit. As part of a settlement or verdict, the nursing home can also be forced to institute changes to prevent the same type of incident from happening to residents in the future. They can be forced to change their policies and procedures. We take pride in working with our clients to help prevent future abuses.
