Nursing home abuse is among the most frustrating because our elderly loved ones are entrusted to the hands of professionals who will supposedly take better care of our loved ones than we can.

The manufacturer can be held liable for personal injuries, medical expenses, wage loss, and ongoing damages caused by the defect.
