Legal Options For Victims of Sexual Assault in Nursing Homes

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard is an experienced sexual assault victim lawyer who represents nursing home abuse victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Here is Michael to share some information on the legal rights of these victims and families:

Nursing homes have a critical legal duty to make sure their residents are safe from preventable harm, including abuse and neglect. Sadly, there have been widespread reports of both of these problems in nursing homes across the country, including cases of residents being sexually assaulted by employees, other residents, and intruders.

When a nursing home resident is sexually assaulted, a full investigation must follow. It's important to ask if and how the assault could have been prevented. Some of these crimes only happen due to negligence, such as inadequate security failing to prevent an intruder from entering the facility and sexually assaulting a resident.

In cases of negligence, nursing home sexual assault victims and their families may have a case for a lawsuit.
