According to the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA), one in ten seniors experience some form of abuse or neglect at nursing homes. In addition to physical abuse, emotional abuse and neglect are a common occurrence at many nursing homes.
Common claims include: sexual abuse, failure to provide proper medical care, unnecessary confinement, willful deprivation of nutrition, financial exploitation, neglect leading to bed sores, and wrongful death.
One of the most common claims, bed sores, occurs when nursing homes and care facilities fail to take the necessary precautions to protect their residents from pressure sores caused by prolonged periods of inactivity.
Regardless of the severity of your nursing home abuse, you may experience significant pain and suffering, medical expenses, emotional distress, and more. Our personal injury team at Alexander & Alexander relentlessly fights to obtain just compensation for nursing home abuse and neglect.
