A Missoula, MT family has settled its lawsuit against two nursing homes. Riverside Health Care Center and the Village Health Care Center were the two nursing home involved in the lawsuit. Family members of the late Ralph Seewald alleged that the nursing homes acted negligently when they failed to provide adequate health care for the 87-year-old man. Mr. Seewald fell and fractured his neck during a transfer from his wheelchair, an accident that left him bedridden. Both the wheelchair transfer and the treatment of his bedsores were inadequate and breached the standard of care in such cases.
A situation like this with professional negligence on the part of a health care provider or a service falls under Medical Malpractice, and can be the grounds for a Wrongful Death Lawsuit. A wrongful death suit is a legal action (lawsuit) filed for the death of a person due to the carelessness, negligence, recklessness, malpractice, or inaction of another individual, company or entity. If someone you love has died to due to the negligence or wrongful actions of another, your family deserves answers and compensation.
