Damages Available in a Kenner Nursing Home Abuse Case
If a nursing home care facility caused your loved one’s injuries, failed to prevent their undue pain and suffering, or allowed abuse to continue, you may have a case against the facility administration or owners. Filing a claim or suing the organization could allow you to recover compensation for your family member’s damages.
The recoverable damages in a nursing home abuse case depend on the severity of the abuse, the circumstances surrounding the abuse, and your loved one’s expenses and losses. Examples of damages available in a financial recovery could include:
- Any required medical care to treat injuries
- Costs related to moving to a new facility
- Expenses related to mental and emotional support following the abuse
- Actual financial losses related to the ordeal
- Pain and suffering and other intangible losses
If neglect or another type of nursing home abuse led to your family member’s death, wrongful death damages may be available. Our firm can assist with both personal injury and wrongful death cases.

Let Our Team Advocate for Your Family
A Kenner nursing home abuse lawyer from Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers may be able to represent your family at no out-of-pocket cost. We handle these cases based on contingency, meaning our attorney’s fees come out of the settlement or verdict we recover for our clients. If we do not secure payment for your family, we will not get paid.
Our recent settlements include two payouts for nursing home residents in excess of $250,000. Both of these cases involved resident neglect, which is more common in many nursing homes today than anyone would like to believe.
We helped these families ensure their loved one’s safety, protect other residents at these facilities, and secure the best care available for their loved ones. We may be able to do the same for you.

Identifying Nursing Home Abuse
RS 40:2010.8 establishes a list of rights for nursing home residents. If any of these rights were violated and your loved one suffered injuries, you may have a case. Several types of abuse can occur in nursing homes:
- Neglect: The resident does not receive the care and support they require.
- Physical Abuse: The resident suffers physical injuries, including hitting, shoving, and more.
- Psychological Abuse: The resident suffers emotionally as a result of being bullied, manipulated, or otherwise mistreated.
- Sexual Abuse: The resident experiences unwanted and unethical sexual contact or sexual harassment.
- Financial Abuse: The resident loses money because of the inappropriate and/or illegal actions of the abuser.
Neglect is a common form of abuse and occurs regularly in many long-term care facilities. For example, bed-bound residents should not develop pressure sores. These sores are preventable with the proper training—residents should receive assistance with turning, sitting, and other movements regularly. Otherwise, bedsores can lead to serious and even fatal infections.
Do Not Wait to Reach Out if You Suspect Abuse
In some cases, we have clients who hesitated to call us sooner because they were not sure if their loved one suffered abuse or not. If you feel this way, we encourage you to reach out to us as soon as possible.
Under CC Art. 3492, we generally only have one year to file a lawsuit against the nursing home. The earlier you call us, the more time we will have to investigate and build your case before this deadline expires. You can speak to a representative from Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers today.
