Nursing Home Abuse
Qualified Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyers
America's aging population is the most vulnerable members of our society. They are dear to our hearts and deserve only the best possible care. When you have decided to entrust a nursing home or assisted living center with your dear family member, you did so under the assumption that your loved one would receive the best quality of life possible.
Nursing homes can be a tremendous expense for your family. Paying for the nursing home staff to take care of your loved one can be a hefty financial obligation. You continue to pay for the expense in good trust that your loved one is being taken care of with the proper medical, emotional, and physical care. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
Most assisted living homes do provide great care for their residents, but others treat residents poorly, negligently, or abusively. If your loved one has suffered serious injuries or if you have lost your loved one due to nursing home abuse or neglect, you need to speak immediately with an Indianapolis personal injury lawyer. At Parr Richey Frandsen Patterson Kruse LLP, we have fought for the rights of injured victims throughout Indianapolis and Lebanon since 1899!Seek Compensation After Suffering Serious Injuries
Millions of Americans reside in nursing homes, and it is a sad truth that many of them are abused or neglected in nursing homes across the nation. Nursing home neglect is the failure to care for an elderly person in a way that would avoid harm and pain, or the failure to prevent harm from occurring. Acts of nursing home neglect can include:
- Evidence of medical neglect, including bedsores, dehydration, or malnutrition
- Improper care, including incorrect medicine dosage, or wrong prescription
- Physical, mental, emotional, verbal, psychological, and sexual abuse
- Unjustified use of restraints
- Poor sanitation techniques
- Incorrect body positioning
- Unreasonable seclusion
- Corporeal punishment
- Lack of bathing
In certain cases, a nursing home claim may involve criminal law as well. If your loved one was injured or if you lost your loved one due to nursing home abuse, you could have the right to seek financial compensation for the injuries experienced as a result of negligence.Compassionate & Aggressive Indianapolis Elder Abuse Lawyer
