Legal Representation for Nursing Home Abuse Victims
Nursing home abuse occurs when someone in a care facility is harmed intentionally or negligently.
Nursing home abuse may be:
- Wrongful Death
Nursing home abuse is never the fault of the victim. It’s never okay. People live in nursing homes because they need and want care. That’s what they deserve. Being free from abuse in a nursing home is your legal right.
If you’re the victim of abuse, you may deserve financial compensation. In addition, bringing a claim can result in accountability and changes that prevent harm to others.
To talk about your situation and see if a claim is right for you, please contact us.
Consequences of Nursing Home Abuse
Victims of nursing home abuse suffer a range of negative outcomes. They may suffer:
- Physically: Including increased medical bills because of the abuse
- Diminished mental health: Anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, and social withdrawal
- Premature mortality: Abuse can lead to premature death
- Cognitive decline: Trauma is associated with decreased cognitive performance, communication challenges, and increased dependence
- Financial harm: Whether because of theft or expenses related to victimization
- Emotional anguish: Being an abuse victim is emotionally traumatizing, especially in an environment that is meant for the resident’s safety
Victims may claim compensation for economic damages and personal suffering. You may receive compensation for increased medical bills, personal care expenses, and property damage. Non-economic damages may include physical pain, mental suffering, and emotional anguish. If you have been victimized by financial abuse, you may seek repayment and damages.
We’re committed to making your claim complete. Being an abuse victim harms you economically and personally. The compensation you receive should reflect your losses. To see what your case may be worth, and what’s involved in bringing a claim, we invite you for a personalized case review.
