Watertown Nursing Home Dehydration Injury Lawyers
Medically speaking, dehydration is caused by losing more fluid than you take in, hence the warnings about drinking enough water when you exercise, when the weather is hot or when you are ill.
Most people experience dehydration at some point in their lives, possibly as the result of having the flu or in the form of a hangover.
Elderly nursing home residents can become dehydrated quickly and may suffer very serious complications.
If your loved one is suffering complications as a result of dehydration and you suspect they are not receiving the attentive, competent care they deserve, call or contact the nursing home injury lawyers at D'Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC at (866) 848-7077, for a free initial consultation and case evaluation.

Why It's Important To Have A Lawyer On Your Side
Without supervision, many nursing home residents wouldn't eat enough or drink enough - not because they want to suffer from dehydration or malnutrition, but because they need help to take care of themselves.
That's why they are in an assisted living or convalescent facility. It is the nursing home's responsibility to prevent those conditions by properly monitoring the food and water intake of every resident.
Understaffing and poor supervision or monitoring practices are the underlying causes in most cases of dehydration. Our attorneys know how to investigate these cases and have the experience and resources it takes to achieve results.
To speak with an experienced lawyer about this issue, please contact D'Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC, today.
We handle nursing home negligence claims on a contingency basis - this means that you pay no attorney fees unless we are successful in obtaining a recovery on your behalf.
