Lawsuits Against Home Health Care Agencies

Imagine an 85-year-old elderly woman lying mostly paralyzed in a nursing home, unable to properly care, feed, or dress herself. The woman’s daughter, who relatives say had been living in her car with her dog, used the 85-year-old’s social security number to pay for a brand new apartment and took over as her mother’s sole caregiver.

Over the next two years, according to police and court records, the woman took her elderly mother to the doctor only once. As her mother’s health declined, the daughter stopped cooperating altogether, and hired a nurse advise her mother on preventing bedsores.

By the end of that year, the 85-year-old mother, died of septic shock resulting from severe bedsore infections.

Lawsuits Against Home Health Care Agencies

Home health care services provide a wide range of medical care and support to individuals suffering from illnesses or recovering from injuries. Home health care is an alternative to hospital, assisted living, or nursing home care that allows individuals to receive care and treatment in the comfort of their own home. However, like other recipients of long-term care, individuals are at risk, injury, or death when providers fail to provide adequate care, and like nursing home and assisted living residents, home health care recipients have the right to take legal action to hold negligent providers accountable.

Margaret, Daisy and Bryan. This magnificent cohesive team led by Margaret represented us for my mom's nursing home wrongful death case. They were most patient and responded timely to many questions throughout the entire process. All demonstrated professionalism and extensive knowledge of case and state laws. Their in-depth investigative work uncovered details which were unknown to us and yet sadly confirmed our suspicions. We would recommend the Levin and Perconti Law firm and especially this team.

I want to send my heartfelt thanks to John Perconti and the Levin & Perconti staff in taking our case. Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way. We were able to sit in on the depositions and we were really able to see how hard they worked on our behalf. M.R.Z., nursing home client
