America’s Aging Population
America’s “Baby Boom” generation continues to age. And the average lifespan is increasing due to advances in medical care and medications. As a result, our nursing home population is expected to increase dramatically. Having to place a loved one in a nursing home is often a very difficult and emotionally draining decision. However, we have the right to expect they will be well cared for once they can no longer live independently. Unfortunately this trust is sometimes betrayed and elder abuse occurs due to negligent care including, as reported by CNN, sexual abuse.
New Hampshire’s Negligence Laws
Under New Hampshire law, establishing liability and recovering compensation requires meeting the elements of negligence. In general, negligence law contains four elements: duty, breach, causation and damages. The NH Nursing Home Injury Attorneys
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, by the year 2030, three million Americans age 65 and over will live in nursing homes. Elderly residents in nursing homes and assisted care facilities need more care than most. As a result, they are more dependent on good quality care and professionals working in those facilities are held to a higher standard of care.
