Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse

Protecting Victims of Physical, Sexual, Emotional, & Financial Abuse

While often difficult, placing an elderly family member in a nursing home may be a necessary decision. Every year in the United States, numerous families place their loved ones in these facilities and entrust their medical care and daily needs to professional staff that is meant to take care of them.

Unfortunately, the standard of care that the elderly deserve is many times not lived up to, and residents may become the victims of nursing home neglect or abuse. Whether your family member has been abused physically, sexually, emotionally, or financially, there may be legal options that you can take to ensure that the responsible parties are held accountable and your loved ones are given the proper care they deserve. If you are ready to take action, we are here to help.
