The Elements of a Nursing Home Medication Error Claim
The first step in pursuing a nursing home medication error claim is taking your family member to a trusted medical provider immediately. Their health and safety is the top priority.
Your doctor can also begin documenting the potential causes of your loved one’s injury which Pintas & Mullins Law Firm can use as evidence later on in the claims process. A member of our team will look for instances where your case meets the criteria for a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
Since every state is different, you will want to speak with a legal professional who understands the laws in your state to determine if your case has a viable claim in your local court system.
A medical negligence claim requires your attorney to prove the following:
- That your family member sustained injuries.
- These injuries resulted in financial losses.
- The nursing home was responsible for your loved one’s
- The nursing home’s breach of duty caused your loved one’s
Pintas & Mullins Law Firm will investigate the circumstances that surround your case and gather the necessary evidence to prove the qualifying factors.
You do not have to face the legal process alone when you work with our firm.

A lawyer will work with you to avoid missing these critical deadlines. Talk with a legal professional as soon as possible to avoid missing this important deadline.
