Injury Lawyers

Toxic and chemical exposure cases, also known as "toxic torts" are claims of personal injury which result from exposure to chemicals, asbestos, silica and other irritants or toxins. In pursuing toxic tort claims in Massachusetts, great care must be given to liability assessment. Under Massachusetts and federal law, toxic and chemical exposure cases almost always require the retention of expert medical and toxicology witnesses. In addition, in handling toxic tort claims, our attorneys coordinate third party exposure claims with the injured person's workers' compensation benefits, when applicable. Our attorneys prepare these cases for settlement, mediation and, when required, for trial.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the rights of nursing home residents?

Nursing home residents have certain rights and protections under both state and federal law. The nursing home must list and give all new residents a copy of these rights.

These resident rights include, but aren't limited to:

  • The right to be treated with dignity and respect.
  • The right to be informed in writing about services and fees before you enter the nursing home.
  • The right to manage your own money or to choose someone else you trust to do this for you.
  • The right to privacy, and to keep and use your personal belongings and property as long as it doesn't interfere with the rights, health, or safety of others.
  • The right to be informed about your medical condition, medications, and to see your own doctor. You also have the right to refuse medications and treatments.
  • The right to have a choice over your schedule (for example, when you get up and go to sleep), your activities and other preferences that are important to you.
  • The right to an environment more like a home that maximizes your comfort and provides you with assistance to be as independent as possible.

Are nursing homes required to keep records of the care provided?

Yes, both state and federal law mandates that facilities must maintain documentation of medical assessments and all plans of care.  As a guardian, you are eligible to review those documents.
