Types of Nursing Home Abuse Claims We Handle
While many nursing homes, assisted living facilities, boarding homes, and convalescent hospitals may present an outward appearance of professionalism and quality care, the harsh reality is that these facilities are often staffed with untrained and underqualified caretakers who may engage in abusive or neglectful behavior towards residents on a daily basis.
It is estimated that elderly patients are abused or neglected in one out of every three nursing homes. Abuse can be physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, or involve some form of medical negligence. If you believe your elderly loved one was mistreated in any way by a caretaker, nurse, or nursing home physician, our firm can fight for your rights and ensure the responsible parties are held accountable for their wrongdoing.
We have the knowledge and skills to take on the following types of claims:
- Bed sores
- Elder abuse
- Financial exploitation
- Failure to diagnose/treat
