Who Is Liable for Nursing Home Wrongful Death?

Determining liability in nursing home wrongful death cases involves assessing the actions or negligence of various parties:

  • Nursing Home Staff: Negligence or abusive actions by nursing home staff, including inadequate care, medical errors, or physical abuse, may make them liable.

  • Administrative Staff: Those responsible for overseeing the operations of the nursing home may be held liable if their actions, policies, or decisions contribute to neglect.

  • Owners and Management: If the nursing home's owners or management fail to implement proper protocols, adequately staff the facility, or address known issues, they may be held accountable.

  • Third-Party Contractors: If the nursing home contracts certain services, such as medical care or maintenance, third-party contractors may be liable if their negligence contributes to a resident's death.

Liability is typically determined based on negligence, abuse, or failure to provide adequate care or supervision that directly leads to the resident's death.

Who Can Recover Compensation?

In Texas, certain family members may be eligible to recover compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one in a nursing home, including:

  • Surviving Spouse: The surviving spouse typically has the first right to file a wrongful death claim.

  • Children: If there is no surviving spouse, children may be eligible to file a claim.

  • Parents: Parents may have the right to pursue a wrongful death claim if there is no surviving spouse or children.

  • Estate Representatives: In some cases, the personal representative of the deceased person's estate may be eligible to bring a claim on behalf of the estate.

Liability is typically determined based on negligence, abuse, or failure to provide adequate care or supervision that directly leads to the resident's death.
