Defending The Defenseless
When a family member moves into a nursing home or assisted care facility, we want only the best standard of care for them. But the unfortunate reality is, that doesn’t always happen.
Nursing home neglect and abuse can happen in a number of forms, and taking action can be critical.
The most common forms of neglect and abuse include:
- General neglect
- Physical abuse or violence
- Emotional, verbal and psychological abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Financial abuse and monetary manipulation and exploitation.
If that has occurred to you or a loved one, filing a lawsuit may be critical both in terms of helping you receive the compensation you deserve and preventing the abusers from hurting others.
Once the victim is removed from immediate danger and is placed in a safe situation, the next best step may be to report the abuse to a state hotline.
At that moment, you need to consider seeking legal advice. The abusers are likely to have a team of legal representatives on their side, and you and your loved ones must receive equal representation.
Elder abuse is something that should not be tolerated, and we here at Jan Dils Attorneys at Law are committed to combating this abuse and fighting on behalf of victims.
