Do I have a case?

If your family member or loved one has been abused, the care facility or nursing home has a responsibility to pay for their neglect. These lawsuits have serious consequences, acting as a way to compensate the patient and their family for injuries, while showing other facilities that they must also improve their level of care.

Signs of elder abuse and neglect might include:

  • Unexplained injuries such as bruises, cuts, or scars
  • Dehydration or malnutrition
  • Broken, sprained, or dislocated bones
  • Drug overdoses or failure to take medication regularly
  • Pressure sores
  • Signs of restraint or force
  • Refusal to allow you to see the patient alone
  • Poor hygiene

There are many factors that can lead to elder abuse, including an understaffed facility, lack of supervision, careless mistakes, or improper record keeping and patient screening. Neglect of this kind can lead to emotional or physical pain and suffering for both the patient and their families.
