Our trial attorneys help victims of nursing home abuse and negligence.
When you place a loved one in the care of a nursing home or an assisted living facility, you expect that their needs will be met and that they will be cared for. Unfortunately, abuse and negligence is all too common.
Even though there are many laws and regulations in place to protect our loved ones, serious violations occur every day that compromise the health, dignity, and well-being of some of society’s most vulnerable members. Research has suggested that abused elders tend to die earlier that those who are well cared for, even in the absence of life-threatening or chronic conditions.
Our firm has the resources and proven record to address any type of nursing home and abuse case.
Our firm can help you or a loved one. Nursing home abuse and negligence takes many different forms. Nursing home abuse and neglect is not limited to physical abuse, but can also be emotional abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation.
Common signs of elderly physical abuse are unexplained bruises, cuts, and broken bones. Forms of elderly emotional abuse may be iintimidation through yelling and threats, humiliation, isolation, and terrorizing, ignoring, and mocking the patient. Elderly sexual abuse also occurs, as well as financial exploitation of the elderly, which may include misuse of checks, accounts, or credit cards; stolen money, checks, or belongings; forged signatures; unauthorized withdrawals and transfers of money; and stolen identity.

Does dissolution of marriage have to be hard fought and bitter?
Dissolution of marriage is almost always difficult, particularly if there are children involved. It is almost inevitable that there will be disagreements. It takes two people to reach an agreement; however, anything that you can do to keep the relationship calm and rational will probably be to your benefit. A provocation by one spouse is usually met with retaliation and the atmosphere can degenerate. When parties seek revenge for past injustice, presumed or real, the battle can be long, expensive and bitter. Even though the statute allows the judge to consider the conduct of the parties in dividing the property, the judge will probably place little weight on the misconduct unless it involves clear physical or emotion abuse. Remember you are paying your attorney by the hour and it is usually a bad idea to escalate the battle if it can be avoided. In summary, try to remain rational and calm and avoid unnecessarily angering your spouse. Remember that you once loved this person and if you have children, you will need to work together in the future to raise these children. Be assertive about your rights, but do not be petty and do not use your children as pawns. We understand that you may have a spouse that is being difficult, and we will help you focus on being calm so that the best possible outcome can be attained.
