Assisted Living and Wrongful Death
Call an assisted living abuse and neglect lawyer who can help
Some seniors live in an assisted living or residential care facility that allows them to retain a sense of independence, while also ensuring that they receive proper care. When these facilities are negligent, the consequences can be fatal for some residents. The Law Office of George S. Johnson, LLC helps the families of those residents get justice.
Residents at these types of facilities may live in apartments, condos or even their own house, and may continue to take care of many of their own needs. The facility is responsible for providing certain services. These may include certain medical care, nursing care, medication management and other services.
Negligence can cause the untimely death of a resident in some situations. Their family members are left grieving and wondering what happened. Negligence at an assisted living or residential facility that resulted in the death of a resident is never acceptable. Assisted living abuse and neglect attorney George S. Johnson holds negligent parties accountable.
There are many types of negligence that could lead to wrongful death in these types of facilities. There may have been a medication error, or failure by a medical professional to notice a resident was having a health issue. In some cases, the facility may have created an unsafe situation for the resident.
Wrongful death cases are often not clear-cut. You may feel something is not right about what happened to your loved one, but you are unable to point to anything specific. Don’t ignore that feeling. Talk to an attorney who is experienced in dealing with negligence at assisted living and residential facilities.

Proving that a loved one suffered a wrongful death due to negligence at one of these types of facilities is challenging.
