Our Attorneys Can Help Protect Your Loved Ones
At Randall & Stump, Criminal Defense Attorneys, our team of lawyers has witnessed firsthand the anger, frustration and sense of betrayal that comes with incidents of nursing home abuse and neglect. You trusted care providers to look out for your loved one, and when that trust is betrayed, you want to do whatever it takes to see that your loved one receives justice and appropriate care.
Nursing home abuse is not always easy to detect. As your attorneys, we can help you spot the warning signs and take appropriate legal action. Perhaps you’ve noticed a significant change in mood, unexplained bruising, poor hygiene or the early signs of malnutrition. When it comes to these types of cases, if you see signs of abuse and/or neglect, it’s important to say something.
Some of the most common types of abuse and neglect cases we handle involve:
- Isolation and a severe lack of attention
- Failure to treat sores or other health issues
- Failure to provide for the resident’s hygiene and cleanliness
- Failure to provide medication (or overmedication)
- Use of restraint
- Emotional abuse
- Force feeding
- Wrongful death caused by abuse or neglect
By working closely with you and your family, we can hold negligent or abusive care providers accountable. We can investigate allegations of abuse, pursue compensation and ultimately see that others don’t suffer from the same conditions or abusive behaviors.
