Alabama nursing home to pay $375,000 for wrongful death

The decision to place a loved one in a nursing home is never easy -- it doesn't matter if it's for short-term rehabilitation or long-term care.

It is becoming more common for nursing homes to include documents that prohibit you from filing a lawsuit in the event that your loved one is a victim of nursing home neglect or abuse. Instead, you must settle the matter through arbitration.
