Elderly Resident at Nursing Home Overdosed

In our experience of pursuing Tennessee Nursing Home Negligence Cases, we have unfortunately discovered that many nursing homes are understaffed, the staff overworked, and improperly trained.

In one case, Deborah Norman and her sister Elizabeth Marquis claim that their father had been overdosed while a patient of the Pawtuxet Village Care and Rehabilitation Center. In an investigation conducted by Medicare, it has been revealed that their father was indeed given powerful medicines that almost killed him. He was taken to the hospital and went into a coma. He survived; however, the sisters are appalled and disappointed by the lack of care at the Pawtuxet Village Care and Rehabilitation Center. The daughters have stated that they are considering filing a civil lawsuit against Sunbridge, the parent company of the nursing home.

Sunbridge runs another nursing home in the state, but there has been no evidence that the facility is being run improperly. The Department of Heath closed the Pawtuxet Village Care and Rehabilitation Center in April. The Sunbridge Company denied comment on the Medicare investigation.

Cases similar to this one occur all too often to people all over the United States and even to Tennessee residents.

When my mother was neglected in a nursing home I was referred to The Higgins Firm for help. They did a great job representing my family and obtained a significant settlement. Hopefully, this will keep someone else's parent from being mistreated in the future. Angie S.

I have a large collection practice and don't handle personal injury cases. Instead of simply declining a case, I referred it to The Higgins Firm. They handled everything. My client got a large recovery and I got a large co-counsel fee. The client and I were both very happy. Attorney Bo Melton

The best injury lawyers in Nashville. They represented my son in a car accident case and did an awesome job. James D.
