Nursing Home Abuse Litigation Lawyers In Coxs Creek Kentucky

Coxs Creek is an unincorporated community along U.S. Routes 31E/150 (known locally as Louisville Road) in Nelson County, Kentucky, United States, 4½ miles north of the county seat of Bardstown. It is named for Colonel Isaac Cox of Pennsylvania, who built a "fort" (actually an "old time block house") at the site in April 1775 before he fought in the American Revolutionary War, with the help of his brother James Cox. The land had actually been his father's (David Cox), but David moved back to Virginia before he developed it. More of a station, Cox's 1,000 acres was said to be the first pioneer station in Nelson County. Isaac Cox would later have the unenviable position as the last white men to be killed by Indians during the time of the great Indian wars in what later became Kentucky. Kentucky's second Baptist association was formed at Coxs Creek on October 29, 1785. The first post office in the community was established in November 28, 1856, with a descendant of Isaac Cox, John C. Cox, the first postmaster. By the time of the automobiles the post office and adjacent store blocked the view of upcoming traffic on US-31, forcing the Kentucky Highway Department to order the post office moved from Coxs Creek's crossroads of US-31E/US-150 and Kentucky State Route 509 in the 1960s; the new post office is 1/2 mile south of the crossroads. The nearby creek is called Coxs Creek, and is a tributary of Kentucky's Salt River. Elevations in Coxs Creek range from 650 to 736 feet above sea level. It has one school: Cox's Creek Elementary School. Its latitude/longitude is 37.899N and 85.474E.

What is nursing home abuse litigation?

Nursing Home Abuse is defined as repeated actions or the lack of appropriate action that causes harm or distress to an older person when in an institution or health care facility. It can take the form of physical, sexual, emotional and financial abuse, among others. Cases may involve residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities who have suffered physical and/or psychological harm due to negligent or intentional acts of their caregivers. A nursing home abuse attorney may seek to hold a care facility liable based on legal theories like negligent screening and supervision of employees, or improper facility maintenance.
