Nursing Home Neglect & Elder Abuse
Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect is Real and It Needs to be Stopped
Many years ago, after realizing that a member of my own family had suffered abuse while in a nursing home, I learned firsthand that some of these “care” facilities fail to live up to their commitment to care for, protect and keep our loved ones in a safe, clean environment.
It was at this time that I began a crusade to help others fight for the rights of our most vulnerable citizens. And we do it with NO UP-FRONT COST or RISK to you or your family. Kelly, Grossman & Kerrigan, LLP only receives payment for fees and expenses if we successfully recover compensation for you, our client. Our loved ones, by no fault of their own, suffered nursing home abuse and neglect and while a legal decision or financial settlement cannot make up for injury or death, it is a start toward making positive change so other families don’t have to go through the same torment.
Together, the team of nursing home neglect lawyers at Kelly, Grossman & Kerrigan, LLP has successfully fought and won thousands of elder abuse cases on behalf of our clients by holding negligent facilities accountable for the suffering of their loved ones. If you have a family member in a nursing home or care facility, check on them often and ensure they are receiving the proper medical, physical and emotional care they need and deserve.
What is Considered “Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse”?
Nursing home abuse and neglect can often be determined when someone we love unexpectedly experiences or exhibits any of the following signs:
- Cuts, welts, bruises or bleeding
- Broken bones
- Untreated bed sores
- Chronic infections
- Physical altercations
- Improper medication
- Report of falls/wandering
- Unsanitary conditions
- Lack of bathing
- Hazardous surroundings
- Unexplained financial or account changes
- Change in personal demeanor/hygiene
Regardless of condition, age, facility type or any other variable, no one who receives care should have to suffer like this. We urge you to always be aware of these neglect and abuse signs to protect your family and friends. If they are victims of any of the above conditions and it is found that the facility failed to monitor, provide adequate care, refused to report abuse or did not follow legal requirements, they could and should be held liable.
