Nursing Home Abuse Litigation Lawyers In Juntura Oregon

Juntura is an unincorporated community in Malheur County, Oregon, United States on U.S. Route 20. The word juntura is Spanish for "juncture", and the community was named for its proximity to the confluence of the Malheur River with its north fork. The name was probably selected by local settler B. L. Milligan, who arrived in the area in the 1880s and who later served as county school superintendent. Juntura post office was established in 1890 and is still operating. The community's development slowed down after World War II, and on November 2, 1976, the town voted to disincorporate. Juntura is part of the Ontario micropolitan area. Ranching and irrigated pastures provide Juntura's economic foundation. There is a restaurant, motel, elementary school, and church, but the gas station is closed. Chukar partridges have been established in the area and draw many upland bird hunters in season. Portions of the Malheur River have been classified as a blue ribbon trout stream, although it is lightly fished. The USPS zip code for Juntura is 97911.

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.
