Nursing Home Injury

One of the hardest decisions a family has to make is the decision to place a loved one in a nursing home or long-term care facility. When it comes time to make such a difficult choice, the last thing that you or your family should have to question is whether or not your loved one will be properly taken care of. However, the awful truth is that far too often elder abuse and neglect in nursing homes is either overlooked or ignored. While the responsible party may face criminal proceedings, you and your loved one may be stuck with medical bills and long-term trauma that the criminal system simply cannot adequately compensate you for.

Why We Fight

Unfortunately, when abuse or neglect is discovered, that may not be the end of your loved one being taken advantage of. Nursing home malpractice insurance companies will quickly try to settle the case for pennies on the dollar. At Patrick and Knoebel, our team is ready to fight to hold those responsible accountable and to get you and your loved one the compensation you deserve.

If you suspect that a loved one is the victim of abuse or neglect, here are some signs to look for:

  • Falls, bruising or broken bones
  • Bedsores or other infections
  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • Medication errors
  • Unclean or unsafe facilities
  • Use of physical or chemical restraints
