My family member sustained a severe injury at their nursing home, and yet she does not know how it happened. How can I possibly make a claim?
Unfortunately, we see more and more cases of injury to those who are least physically equipped to handle it, the elderly. Nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and other such institutions have specific reporting requirements concerning the activities of their employees and the welfare of their patients. There are many levels of government supervision of such places and if you believe that injury or abuse is taking place at the establishment where your family member is, it is important to contact the appropriate local authority to investigate.
