If you trusted a nursing home to care for a loved one, and you suspect neglect or abuse, you are not alone. Nursing Home Negligence can take many forms – ranging from physical injuries to emotional abuse. Regardless of the form that the Nursing Home Negligence takes, it is illegal.

Incidents of nursing home abuse are rarely reported to the proper authorities. Residents typically are reluctant to complain for fear of retaliation or embarrassment, and family members may be unaware of the common signs of abuse.

Know the Signs of Abuse

If you notice that your loved one exhibits any of the following signs of abuse, take immediate action:

Physical Injuries

  • Death
  • Broken bones
  • Bed sores & bruises
  • Medication overdose
  • Head injury

Neglect

  • Dehydration
  • Malnourishment
  • Poor hygiene
  • Soiled bedding

Emotional Abuse

  • Agitation
  • Fearful
  • Frequent crying
  • Complaints of poor treatment

Every claim for nursing home negligence does have a deadline, known as a statute of limitations. This statute requires that any legal action be filed within a certain amount of time after the neglect has been suspected. Therefore, it is important to review any potential nursing home negligence claim with a qualified attorney as soon as possible to make sure your family’s legal rights are protected.  If you believe your loved one is at risk of abuse, it is important that you recognize the warning signs and act quickly. You can protect them and their rights by contacting us today.

Client Reviews

  • I was offered 0 on a low impact accident. After long litigation I was offered 100,000 which mr maranto rejected. I ended up with 235,000. I would definately use this firm again.

  • So far, so good! This law office appears to have it's stuff together. And I like the fact that they don't have to advertise like the the the other 2 law firms with the 444444 and the 888888 numbers which tells me they get a lot of word of mouth advertising..the best kind. Also I called one of the 444 and/or 888 numbers and the attorney was very short and rude. After my case I will do a follow up to let you all know how my complete experience was.
