Grounds for Lawsuits Against a Hospice

In addition to wrongful death actions, you can sue a hospice for these claims:

  • Breach of contract, if hospice fails to provide the services they promise in the contract or if the hospice fails to follow Georgia’s hospice rules
  • Negligence, if your loved one gets injured due to caregiver’s mistake in hospice
  • Malpractice, if hospice fails to provide the level of care that another health care provider would have under similar circumstances
  • Elder abuse, if they intentionally cause physical or emotional harm, neglect, or financially abuse your loved one
