We Hold Negligent Nursing Homes Accountable

Abuse of nursing home residents is more common than anyone would like to believe. It is shocking to many people that abuse can occur in institutions that are designed to care for our loved ones when they are no longer able to care for themselves.

At Warner Law Offices, PLLC, our attorneys represent victims of nursing home abuse. If you think that your loved one may be a victim of abuse or neglect, contact us.

Sadly, abusive people tend to exploit those who are least able to defend themselves. According to the American Medical Association, one in four older persons has experienced some form of abuse: Either physical, emotional, sexual, or financial. Many nursing home residents do not complain of abuse because they are ashamed or fearful. In the case of financial abuse, the resident might not even be aware that someone is taking advantage of them. It is often family members who are the first to notice that something is wrong.

Symptoms of abuse may include:

  • Changes in behavior — for example, an outgoing person may become withdrawn
  • Unexplained charges on credit cards or withdrawals from bank accounts
  • Overmedication of your family member
  • Unexplained bruises or injuries
  • Missing items from your family member’s room

Patients may suffer abuse from other residents or from staff members. If your loved one was abused due to negligent supervision in a nursing home, our lawyers will seek compensation for damages such as medical bills, and compensation for pain and suffering.
