Residents may be deeply hurt by nursing home neglect or abuse

There is not one single cause of nursing home abuse or neglect. Instead, there are several different forms of abuse or neglect that can lead to many different injuries for nursing home residents.

No form of nursing home abuse or neglected should be accepted or tolerated. Instead, anyone who has been hurt by the neglectful or abusive actions of a nursing home’s staff—or loved ones of the victim—should know how to take action. Your time is limited to file a lawsuit, to recover damages, to hold the nursing home accountable for its actions, and to encourage the nursing home to make changes to better protect residents from abuse and neglect. Accordingly, it is important to identify the cause of the nursing home abuse that you or your loved one suffered and to contact an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer as soon as possible.
