Signs of Elder Abuse in a Nursing Home
Unfortunately, a significant amount of nursing home abuse cases go unreported. Whether that is because the victim cannot physically share the information or because the elder is not able to understand the care they deserve, at the very first sign of abuse immediately contact our nursing home malpractice law firm. Obvious physical signs of abuse include bedsores, malnutrition, broken bones from a fall and medical errors which could all lead to the most egregious negligence: death. Malpractice lawsuits also include mental and emotional abuse, which is much harder to identify. Emotional abuse refers to verbal threats, isolation, insults and the use of fear tactics to control residents. Other forms of nursing home neglect cases we’ve counseled include lack of supervision, sexual assault, coercion and theft. Whether the abuse happened once or many times over the course of months or years, it is essential you partner with a nursing home abuse law firm to fight for the rights of the elderly victim.
Importance of Hiring a Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Hiring a nursing home abuse lawyer holds the care facility and their staff accountable for their appalling actions of neglect, abuse and mistreatment of their residence. Besides compensation for the victim and family, the law suit can lead to loss of licensing, federal funding and jobs for all involved. Furthermore, filing a suit protects other men and women in the care of a nursing home from being susceptible to the same types of mistreatment and neglect. If you suspect your loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse, contact J. Fine Law today to speak with our experienced personal injury lawyers today. There is a statute of limitations to the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit and seek justice.
