Assisted Living Abuse and Neglect Lawsuit
Assisted living facilities allow your loved one to maintain an active lifestyle while still receiving the care that their age or condition requires. The social aspect of these facilities is both a blessing and a curse, as the individuals who surround your family member can potentially cause harm if the proper safety precautions and standards aren’t met. Abuse in any form is intolerable, and it is especially unacceptable when preventable.
You trusted the caretakers of the assisted living facility to protect and care for your loved one. Administrative negligence is commonly the cause of elder abuse, and Morgan & Morgan is here to fight back against this injustice and hold the at-fault parties responsible for their crime. If your loved one suffered abuse in their assisted living facility, our compassionate elder abuse attorneys can help you navigate through this unfortunate situation.

Assisted Living Abuse and Neglect Lawsuit FAQs
What Does Elder Abuse in Assisted Living Facilities Look Like?
When abuse does occur, it commonly happens behind closed doors. You should look for any changes in your loved one’s behavior during their stay, as this can indicate an abusive situation. If you notice any of the following red flags, you should contact the authorities for assistance:
- Emotional withdrawal
- Bruises or bleeding
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Physical discomfort
- Sudden financial problems
- Changes in legal documentation (power of attorney, will, etc)
- Unexplained diseases or infections
Anyone who has access to the assisted living facility can potentially cause harm to its residents, including other residents or family members. This makes the role of staff members very important, so the facility should retain competent and qualified employees to properly handle any issues that may arise within the premises. If the assisted living center fails to conduct thorough background checks on their employees, violent and malicious individuals can occupy the staff and put residents at risk for injury.
How Can an Attorney Help?
Discovering your loved one was abused within their assisted living facility is a shocking experience that may leave you with overwhelming uncertainty. When you team up with an experienced attorney, you gain the benefit of their legal advice, which is a key asset in protecting the rights of your loved one. You want the best possible outcome for your case, and an attorney can help guide you in the right direction.
Unethical assisted living facilities may attempt to hide their misconduct and claim it never occurred. With the help of an elder abuse attorney, you can conduct a detailed investigation into the situation and bring any evidence of abuse into the courtroom. Not only that, but having an attorney by your side can offer you peace of mind during this stressful time, which is priceless in some cases.
