Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence

Attorney in Newark and Essex County

When you choose to place a loved one into a nursing home or in hospice care, you do so assuming that he or she will be taken care of to the best of the facility's abilities. For most individuals, nursing homes seem like the right choice, especially considering that many people lack the proper amenities to provide long-term care for someone who is aging and may be ill.

If you have placed a loved one in a nursing home and you are now aware that he or she may have been abused or suffered severe negligence, you need to contact The King Law Firm right away. We understand that this may be frustrating and you may feel disheartened, but you need to work with a Newark personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Our team can help you establish who is liable for the incident(s) and help you receive compensation for the wrongs that your loved one has faced.

How Do I Know If Negligence Actually Occurred

It is never easy to learn that your loved one has been abused, especially when you placed them in a nursing home you considered to be trustworthy. In most cases, abuse or neglect could have been prevented, so it is important that the wrongful parties are held accountable for their actions. There are various types of abuse that can occur in a nursing facility, and while no two situations are alike, we have experience advocating on behalf of clients who have suffered:

  • Emotional abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Lack of medication or overmedication
  • Withholding of food and water
  • Unnecessary use of restraints or force

It may not always be completely noticeable that your loved one is suffering from abuse or neglect, but some signs to watch for include unexplained bruises or cuts, a sudden change in behavior, unexplainable weight loss, or withdraws from a back account that were not made by the account's owner. If you suspect abuse or neglect, do not hesitate to contact The King Law Firm right away.
