It is our intention to help to preserve the legal rights of nursing home abuse and neglect victims by educating our readers as to what their rights may actually be; what laws may apply; how frequent similar accidents occur; who may be legally at fault; time limits (statute of limitations) for taking action; and so on. It is our hope that by doing so, nursing home abuse and neglect victim/survivors will gain a better understanding of their own legal rights and more wrongdoers will be held accountable.
