Our elderly should be among our most cherished individuals in society. Unfortunately, they are also among our most vulnerable. Many families entrust their loved ones into the care of a nursing home or assisted living facility only to find that they have suffered neglect or abuse at the hands of the providers charged with caring for their basic needs.
Our experienced attorneys have handled cases involving:
If you suspect a loved one is or has been abused while in a nursing care facility, contact the police. Documenting all evidence of abuse or neglect (improper hygiene, bed sores, restraints, abuse, etc.) will help bring the atrocities to the forefront and lay the groundwork for presenting a case to seek damages for your loved one.
Many nursing homes provide excellent care. Unfortunately, there are facilities that are more profit-driven and more interested in making money than hiring well-qualified care providers. If your loved one has been injured due to nursing home abuse or neglect, call Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz and let our attorneys review your case.
By taking action, you may be protecting someone else from abuse or negligence.
