Aurora Nursing Home Negligence Attorneys

Representing the Legal Rights of the Elderly

Millions of families across the United States pay nursing homes and assisted living facilities thousands of dollars each month to ensure that their elderly loved ones receive the full-time attention and day-to-day medical care their individual circumstances require. Unfortunately, over 2 million cases of nursing home abuse are reported each year. Due to their advanced age and disabilities, nursing home residents can be vulnerable to physical, emotional, and financial abuse. Sadly, most abuse incidents are unreported because patients are threatened and manipulated by their abusive caretakers. When a facility fails to uphold a reasonable standard of care, victims and their families have the legal right to pursue justice and compensation.

If your loved one has experienced abuse or neglect while in the care of a nursing home facility, contact Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices immediately. Even if you merely suspect that something is wrong at a facility, a legal investigation may just save a patient’s life. Our nursing home negligence lawyers in Aurora can help you deliver justice and prevent future cases of abuse by holding the facility and its staff legally accountable for their actions.

Call our Aurora nursing home negligence attorneys at (866) 891-9211 if you believe that your loved one is a victim of abuse or neglect.

Recognizing the Signs

As previously stated, most nursing home residents don’t report incidents of abuse out of fear or because they’ve been manipulated by the guilty staffers. In certain cases, they may not even be aware that they’re being abused. Consequently, most claims are filed by concerned family members who discover incidents of neglect and abuse and take the appropriate legal actions. During your free consultation, we can discuss your case and strengthen your claim by evaluating which type of abuse your loved one has suffered.

Signs of neglect may include:

  • Malnourishment
  • Poor hygiene
  • Dehydration
  • Anxiety
  • Slip and falls
  • Bed sores
  • Medication errors

Signs of physical abuse may include:

  • Scrapes or cuts
  • Broken bones
  • Bruises
  • Improper use of restraints
  • Fear of staffers

Signs of emotional abuse may include:

  • Humiliation
  • Intimidation
  • Manipulation
  • Isolation
  • Threats
  • Insults

Signs of financial exploitation include:

  • Stealing a patient’s identity
  • Abusing access to a patient’s financial accounts
  • Using a patient’s checks or credit cards
  • Stealing financial assets or property
  • Sudden changes to an estate plan
  • Forging signatures on the behalf of the patient

Nursing home abuse and neglect can have a lasting and detrimental impact on your loved one. The best way to combat this negligence is to visit your loved one often and at various times. You can also talk to other families and patients to learn more about the facility and how it treats its residents. If you suspect that your loved one is suffering, remove them from the facility immediately and seek legal assistance.
