Potential Claims for Nursing Home Abuse
It is a sad reality that abuse of the elderly in a nursing home setting is far more common than most people realize. Many facilities are understaffed, their staff is untrained, and they maintain a diminished standard of care. Each of these factors contribute to the facilitation of nursing home neglect and abuse.
Nursing home abuse must be investigated on a case-by-case basis. Each claim is unique and must be given individual attention. Our highly experienced team understands this process and will partner with you to perform a comprehensive evaluation of your case. This discovery process will help determine the amount of your settlement and the level of damages.
Signs and Symptoms of Nursing Home Neglect

- Soiled Bedding
- Unsanitary Environment

It is very important that you listen to your loved ones and any complaints they might have. If they communicate a problem to you, take their concerns seriously and investigate. They may be the victim of elder abuse and have no one else to reach out to other than you. Also make sure to watch for these signs even if your loved one does not voice any concerns. It is very common for this type of abuse to go unreported and unnoticed.
