Nursing Home Abuse & Negligence
Abuse and neglect of our elderly occurs way too often because the elderly are some of our society’s most vulnerable people. This type of abuse takes many forms, but is damaging to our elderly whether it be physical, emotional or financial damage. Depending on the type of facility, there are local, state and federal regulations governing the operation of these institutions. Signs of nursing home abuse and negligence can be exhibited by:
Burns or abrasions
Bed sores & bruises
Agitation or fear
Sudden change in weight
If the unthinkable happens and you notice any of these signs on an aging parent or elderly loved one who is in a nursing home facility, they should not be ignored. You and/or your family should seek legal representation immediately before it is too late. Our team is waiting to help you receive the justice you and your loved one deserve.
