Can a Resident Sue With and Without a Contract?


A nursing home contract is put in place so you and your loved one know what rights you are entitled to while receiving care. This agreement contract is a legally binding document that is designed to protect the nursing home, not you or your loved one. Read the document carefully before signing. A resident can sue a nursing home facility regardless as to whether or not they have a contract. However, your case may not be taken to court if your contract has an "arbitration agreement."
