Had a resident fall in the middle of the night and the main nurse was called on her cell phone she replied with I'm not gonna deal with this at 2 am. Is that considered neglect? The resident did suffer an injury.
For anyone to bring a personal injury lawsuit, it is necessary for the person to have standing.
That's a legal term that means has the right due to a relationship with the injured person such as parent or guardian or other.
If you were merely a bystander, then you cannot bring the lawsuit until the relationship is established. Good luck.
Attorney Shaw is correct. You may complain or better yet, alert the family.
