How Long Do You Have to File a Lawsuit Against a Nursing Home?

posted on March 24, 2022

The time limit will vary depending on what type of case your attorney files against the nursing home. Your attorney may file a personal injury, medical malpractice, or wrongful death suit. After you file the claim, you will follow the laws in the state where the abuse took place and be guided by your lawyer throughout the process. Every state has its own laws regarding nursing homes.

If you Missed the Civil Lawsuit Timeline, the nursing home could present a motion to dismiss your case. If the judge agrees and approves the motion, you will not be able to pursue the claim. If you believe you have missed the statute of limitations, you can speak with a nursing home neglect and abuse lawyer. Some circumstances allow you to proceed.

Your lawyer cannot settle your nursing home injury case without you. Your lawyer can handle many aspects of your case on your behalf, but under no circumstances can a lawyer accept an offer without your consent unless you have given the attorney preauthorization.

You do not have to have any money upfront to hire nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys. Nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only get paid if the case has been won.
