How Nursing Home Lawsuits Improve Care For Others
No amount of compensation will ever fully compensate your family for the suffering that the negligent nursing home caused. Consequently, the attorneys and Collins & Collins will work with you to attempt to secure fundamental changes in the way in which this nursing home operates, so as to prevent this sort of incident from ever occurring to someone else. For most clients, however, the most direct path to achieving change in a nursing home abuse lawsuit is to achieve a large settlement or judgement. That is because most nursing homes are actually owned by large corporations, which generally only change behavior for the better when they are forced to realize that with the added cost of lawsuits, providing quality care is actually a smart financial decision.
