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.
