Nursing Home Physical Abuse Lawyer
Elder Physical Abuse
All medical workers have a legal and ethical obligation not to hurt their patients. A high level of care is especially important when caring for the elderly. Age can bring certain changes in the body, such as more brittle bones and thinner skin. This means that senior citizens are likely to be badly hurt by actions that would only slightly injure a younger person.
Elder Abuse Attorneys Can Help
We want to assist you and your family as you fight back against the effects of:
- Assault and Battery
- Unnecessary Restraints
- Weight Loss
We will collect evidence to determine who is ultimately responsible for your loved one’s terrible experience. For example, it may be an individual caretaker or the nursing home’s management. In any case, we will work tirelessly to maximize your chances of winning compensation for medical expenses, your loved one’s pain and suffering, and wages you may have lost while handling this crisis.
A Nursing Home’s Responsibility for Elder Abuse
A nursing home as a whole can be responsible for abuse suffered by its residents if its management:
- Was aware of abuse, but did not stop it
- Failed to screen job applicants well enough
- Failed to adequately train employees to recognize and prevent abuse
- Failed to hire enough orderlies or supervisors to run the home well
