Symptoms Of Nursing Home Neglect And Abuse

If your family member or loved one is suffering from neglect or abuse, you must take action. Many residents of nursing homes do not fully realize what is happening or are too afraid to speak up. You must be your loved one’s voice.

Some conditions that could indicate abuse or neglect of nursing home residents include:

  • Bedsores
  • Unexplained bruises or abrasions
  • Dehydration or malnutrition
  • Wandering off the nursing home property without supervision
  • Overmedication or mistakes in providing medication
  • And many others

You have the right to ask nursing home management and personnel about these and other unexplained injuries. If you are not satisfied with their answers, call The Smith Fila Law Firm at 877-386-6038.

How We Can Help

Many injuries suffered by nursing home residents are caused by inadequate management practices such as lack of supervision, poor screening of job applicants and other faults on the part of nursing home management.

Our attorney will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case to establish the cause of negligence or abuse. Nursing homes are required by law to keep detailed records of the care provided to their residents, and data that is missing, altered or contradictory can form an important element of a case. We will also place a value on the suffering of your loved one and other noneconomic losses for inclusion in your claim.

The Smith Fila Law Firm will work tenaciously to build a strong and persuasive case designed to obtain full compensation for you as well as justice for your loved one. And by doing so, we may be able to save other residents of the facility from suffering neglect and abuse.
