Nursing Home Negligence
Many people today must spend their final years in a nursing home where they are expected to receive quality care. However, many of these facilities are understaffed and do not prioritize patient safety. If your loved one’s health is affected because of substandard care, you may be able to file a claim to seek compensation for the damages he or she has suffered. The Law Office of Rene Hernandez, P.C. can help determine if you have a viable claim.
