Listen as Attorney Yao Dinizulu explains what you can do when you are being sued by a nursing home for debts accumulated by a deceased family member.
I once had a client who was being sued by a nursing home for the debt that her deceased father accumulated. She was already dealing with the passing of her father, and to add the new debt to her life only made matters worse. She told me of all of the negligence that had happened during her father’s stay. The nursing home was not taking care of her father.
Upon further investigation of her case, I found that the contract the home wanted her to sign called for her to sign her own name on her father’s contract on behalf of her father. Law students know that for a contract to be enforceable, both parties have to fulfill the promises outlined in that contract. In this case, the nursing home promised to provide adequate medical care to her father, which they did not. Their lawsuit was dismissed, but we were able to turn around and sue the nursing home for negligence. Watch the video to learn more.
