Nursing Home Abuse Litigation Lawyers In Noyes Minnesota

Noyes is an unincorporated community in St. Vincent Township, Kittson County, Minnesota, United States. Located in the extreme northwestern corner of the state, it was an important border-crossing location going back to the days of ox roads. It is the northern terminus of U.S. Route 75 and the site where the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe and Soo Line Railroads enter Canada. With the development of Interstate 29 on the opposite side of the nearby North Dakota border, U.S. Route 75 has declined in importance, and the corresponding Canadian border crossing in Emerson, Manitoba closed in 1999. With the duty-free store closed, Noyes is close to becoming a ghost town.

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.
