Drug or alcohol addiction affects millions of Americans who struggle to live a normal, wholesome life without the specter of addiction looming large. As a result, rehab centers provide an invaluable service to these individuals to help them get and stay sober and clean. Rehab facilities around the country are governed by different regulations from one state to the next, and it is because of this lack of uniformity with regard to regulations that some facilities take advantage of the system by not only providing substandard care, but also creating an environment where addicted individuals are more likely to relapse, harm themselves or harm others. Rehab centers are very visible in the news media, and the image they paint of serene, tropical locations may be smoke and mirrors given the shocking numbers of relapses as well as exposes on the fraudulent as well as negligent activities going on in these facilities. If you or a loved one suffered injuries at a drug and alcohol rehab facility, you have every right to file a legal claim to recover money damages in order to make your life whole again.

Experienced Lawyers for Drug and Alcohol Center Malpractice
It is important to note in most states, the principle of vicarious liability exists. This legal principle means that a facility can be held responsible for the actions of its staff, even if the facility proper wasn’t negligent itself. Therefore, it is possible to recover substantial compensation for drug and alcohol rehab malpractice lawsuits when one goes after the resource-rich rehab center, and not its worker. In order to file a successful rehab malpractice suit, one must prove a number of things. Want to know what these are?
