What Is Considered Nursing Home Abuse?
Nursing home abuse refers to various forms of mistreatment, such as physical abuse, emotional or psychological abuse, neglect, financial exploitation, and sexual abuse. In other words, action or inaction that causes harm or distress to your loved one residing in a nursing home can be considered abuse.
What Are Some Common Signs of Abuse in a Nursing Home?
When your loved one appears to have unexplained injuries, bruises, or fractures, sudden changes in behavior, withdrawal from social interactions, poor hygiene, weight loss, and unexplained financial transactions, they may be a victim of abuse. The most important thing to do in such a situation is to ensure that your loved one receives prompt medical attention. Then, document everything and contact Morgan and Morgan for a free case evaluation.
How Much Will a Nursing Home Abuse Attorney Charge To Handle My Case?
We won’t charge you any upfront fees to handle your case. That’s because we work on a contingency fee basis, which is the legalese way of saying we don’t get paid unless we win the case.
How Do I Prove That My Loved One Was Abused in a Nursing Home?
It will depend on the specifics of your case. That said, no matter the circumstances, you must establish that the nursing home owed your loved one a duty of care, meaning there was a provider-client relationship. You must also establish that the nursing home breached this duty and your loved one suffered injuries and damages as a result of the breach of duty of care.
Who Will Compensate Me if I Win My Nursing Home Abuse Case?
The compensation will generally come from the liable parties, usually through their insurance carrier. This may include the nursing home, its staff, or any other negligent third parties involved in the abuse, such as nurses and physical therapists.
