Common Nursing Home Negligence Questions

If you or a loved one has experienced nursing home negligence, you likely have many questions and concerns. 

Whether you’re just starting to explore your legal options or need guidance in pursuing a claim, our FAQ can provide valuable information to help you navigate this difficult situation.

A claim for nursing home negligence can typically be filed by the affected resident, a family member or legal guardian, or the personal representative of the resident’s estate (in case of the resident’s death). It’s essential to consult an experienced attorney to determine who has the legal standing to file the claim in your situation.

If you’ve or a loved one has been a victim of nursing home negligence, you may wonder how much it costs to hire a lawyer. The good news is that many nursing home negligence lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only get paid if you win your case. This fee arrangement can be a relief for families already facing financial hardship due to nursing home negligence.

The contingency fee will vary based on your agreement with your lawyer and whether you settled the case before or after filing a lawsuit. Typically, a contingency fee agreement involves the lawyer receiving a percentage of the total amount recovered in the case. This percentage can vary depending on the complexity of the case and the specific lawyer.

A nursing home lawyer specializes in abuse, neglect, or negligence cases in nursing homes or other long-term care facilities. They help clients navigate the legal process by investigating the circumstances of the case, gathering evidence, negotiating with insurance companies or opposing counsel, and representing clients in court if necessary. They work diligently to protect the rights of the elderly and seek compensation for their pain, suffering, and any financial losses incurred due to negligence.

To prove a nursing home negligence case, you need to establish the following:

  • Duty of care: The nursing home had a legal responsibility to provide adequate care to the resident.
  • Breach of duty: The nursing home failed to meet its duty of care by providing substandard care or failing to address the resident’s needs.
  • Causation: The breach of duty directly resulted in harm or injury to the resident.
  • Damages: The resident or their family suffered losses (e.g., medical expenses, pain and suffering) as a result of the negligence.


Proving negligence can be complex, and it’s crucial to work with an experienced attorney who can gather evidence, consult with expert witnesses, and build a strong case on your behalf.
