Do Not Take Any Chances
In many cases, an elderly victim of nursing home abuse will be reluctant to tell family members about experiencing physical abuse, and family can be reluctant to believe that the care providers they trusted could actually commit physical abuse against the elderly relative in their care. However, it is important to get a team of experienced nursing home abuse lawyers involved as soon as possible if you suspect abuse, to retain evidence and get your case started. If you are seeing signs of abuse in your elderly relative who is in the nursing home — signs like bruises, welts or open sores — do not wait another minute.

Types of Physical Abuse Against Elders
We have represented clients in a wide variety of elder abuse cases, including:
- Overmedication as a means of restraint
- Excessive use of physical restraints
- Excessive force while administering physical restraints
- Sexual abuse
These abuses take place in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and in home health care programs. When the professionals charged with caring for you or your elderly relative commit abuse, it is a betrayal of trust. We can fight for your rights, your dignity and the compensation you deserve for the injustice you have experienced.
