Protecting The Vulnerable

Putting your loved one into a long-term care facility that can provide the care they need can be a wrenching decision. You put your money and your trust into such a facility believing that the staff will provide the attentive and professional care that you're paying for. So when health care professionals betray that trust by abusing or neglecting your loved one, outrage and heartbreak aren't far behind. You don't have to accept what's happened to your loved one sitting down. Talk to one of our determined personal injury attorneys at Elefterakis Elefterakis & Panek about filing a lawsuit to secure justice for what happened.

It is unconscionable when nursing home management, staff or personnel willfully neglect their duties to care for elderly patients — we'll help get results that matter.

What Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect Look Like

Sometimes, it's not obvious that your loved one is being mistreated; particularly if the abuse has been emotional or psychological. The abuse may even be financial. The signs of physical abuse or neglect can be easier to spot, and may include:

  • Bruises
  • Bedsores
  • Dehydration
  • Weight loss/malnutrition
  • Fractures
  • Head injuries
  • Sudden changes in emotional affect

Any of these should be a red flag for you to call an attorney. Nursing homes are supposed to provide a standard of care that puts the patients' well-being first. When they fail in this basic responsibility, it's time to talk to a lawyer to seek justice for your loved one.
