He was surrendered to DCS bc of behavior, a group home staff member broke his femur in half requiring surgery, permanent rods and pins in his thigh for life. There is an investigation ongoing by police and DCS into the matter.
You need an attorney who specializes in injuries that occur in group homes. Many attorneys who handle nursing home neglect and abuse cases also handle group home cases. I don't practice in AZ but can recommend several excellent attorneys in the Phoenix area.See question

If Menard's was negligent and this was an unsafe condition, you would be able to make a claim for your pain, suffering and disability (even if just temporary), lost wages and medical expenses. If there is a permanent scar, that would be part of the claim also. I hope you took some photos of the area before you left.See question

I'm sorry to hear about your wife's care. Was your wife injured in the fall? What is the severity of her injuries? Generally, if your wife is at risk for falling, the facility has to prepare a plan to prevent falls. Depending on the circumstances of the fall, the facility may be at fault. I'd suggest you speak to an attorney who regularly handles these types of cases and discuss the particulars of what happened to your wife. You won't get the right answer just based on this posting. Feel free to contact my office. We handle these types of incidents frequently. Best wishes.See question

My mother is currently in a nursing home. She has a couple bed sores and keeps tilting over in bed. She is unable to move herself back to a proper sitting position. The nurses do not come in but once a day to reposition her. Is there a state min...
The usual practice is that a resident should be repositioned every 2 hours. But, depending on the risk of acquiring a pressure sore, a resident may need to be repositioned more frequently. The risk of acquiring a pressure sore should have been assessed. A turning scheduled should be in the plan of care. There is no state minimum, its a standard of care that is individual to the resident. There are also devices like a cushion and air mattresses that decrease pressure. So, there are quite a few documents that would require review. I hope this helps.See question

Is the insurance company claiming the driver didn't have permission to drive the vehicle? If not, the insurance company is responsible. If the damage is less than $10,000 you can file a small claims action. Small claims is like "people's court." You can actually pursue small claims without hiring a lawyer.See question
