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.
