Protecting Victims Of Nursing Home Abuse
When we entrust the care of our loved ones to a nursing home or assisted living facility, we expect that they will be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve. Unfortunately, however, some nursing homes have a reputation for neglecting or even abusing residents, which can lead to painful results, both physically and emotionally.
At The Law Offices of Joseph J. Cariglia, P.C., we take all cases of nursing home abuse in Massachusetts seriously. We stand up for the rights of nursing home residents or those in assisted living facilities who have suffered either physical, emotional or sexual abuse or negligence at the hands of their caregivers.
Signs And Symptoms Of Nursing Home Abuse
Typical signs of nursing home abuse include:
The presence of unexplained bruises, burns or other nursing home injuries
- Uncharacteristic signs of fear, timidity or confusion
- An unwillingness to communicate
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- An unexplained decline in health with no medical basis
- Other signs of physical, mental or emotional distress
If your loved one has exhibited any of the symptoms listed above or you suspect any other negligence in the nursing home, you should contact an experienced elder abuse lawyer as soon as possible.
Proving nursing home abuse is more difficult than many realize. When you work with our law firm, we get right to work investigating all evidence of suspected abuse, including medical records and care charts, to examine unexplained symptoms. Our lawyers are seasoned trial lawyers and do what it takes to protect our clients’ rights and the safety of their loved ones. We will aggressively pursue maximum compensation and punitive damages if warranted through negotiation or litigation.
