Nursing Home Injuries

Nursing Home Injuries Lawyer

While nursing homes should be places of love and care for the elderly, unfortunately, some of them are not. Sadly, the elderly have become victims of nursing home abuse and have sustained injuries due to this abuse. If you suspect that your loved one is being neglected or abused by a nursing home, you should report this information to the nursing home first. If the problems persist, you should report to the proper local authorities such as the state attorney general or a private attorney so that they can make sure that the matter is taken care of. Do not ignore the signs of abuse. The abuse will not stop on its own.

Warning Signs of Abuse

Some of the warning signs of abuse:

  • unexplained bruising or other cuts or scrapes
  • the staff of the nursing home not allowing you or a relative to be alone with your loved one
  • your loved one seeming lethargic and in an over-medicated state
  • sudden changes in the behavior of your loved one
  • bedsores

All of these could be signs that your loved one is not receiving proper medical care. If you suspect this is the case, you should contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. You may have a right to receive compensation for damages that your loved one suffered if the nursing home is negligent and fails to act with the same care one would expect from any other healthcare facility. An experienced attorney can help preserve your claim and make sure that fair compensation is received for the injuries to your loved one and help ensure that the abuse or neglect does not continue.

If you suspect that your loved one is not being properly cared for and may be sustaining mental, emotional, or physical abuse or neglect and you would like to talk with an experienced nursing home injury attorney, please contact us.
