Identifying Signs of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Residents of nursing homes often cannot explain what is happening to them, and they may feel intimidated and afraid of speaking up. It is up to you to recognize the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect such as:
- Frequent falling out of bed
- Unexplained bruises and abrasions
- Passive or withdrawn behavior
If you suspect that your family member or loved one is not receiving proper care at his or her care facility, one of the nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys at Friday & Cox LLC may be able to help you.
Investigating and Pursuing a Nursing Home Lawsuit
Fortunately, for the nursing home resident and family members, there are a number of resources available that can shed light on the care provided at nursing homes. These facilities are required by State authorities to maintain detailed records of their procedures and management oversight activities. The victim’s primary care physician, employees, witnesses, and family members can also give details on what has happened, even when the victim cannot.
As an experienced and successful personal injury law firm, we understand how to investigate and pursue nursing home cases. Our lawyers will thoroughly examine all aspects of your loved one’s case, paying particular attention to the standard of care provided to the nursing home resident.
Friday & Cox LLC will work to build the strongest case possible, designed to obtain compensation, justice, and answers. By taking action, we may prevent others from suffering the way your loved one has suffered.
