Legal Support For Victims Of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse and neglect should never be tolerated. Often, injured nursing home residents or their family members come to us looking for a way to help ensure that future nursing home residents will not suffer a similar fate. Answers and action are as important to such clients as financial compensation. A successful settlement of a nursing home abuse case often includes an accident-prevention plan that the nursing home pledges to follow.

At the Law Offices of Gary Osborne & Associates, our skilled lawyers have been investigating and litigating nursing home neglect, abuse and death cases for more than 30 years. We understand the severity and sensitive nature of these cases and provide strong legal support to guide you through the process.

Recognizing The Signs Of Abuse And Neglect

You should be aware of the signs that may indicate that your loved one is being mistreated in a nursing home. In many cases, the resident will not mention it because of embarrassment or fear of further abuse.

Evidence of elder and assisted living neglect and nursing home abuse has many forms, including:

  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Medication errors
  • Fractures caused by falls that result from failure to monitor or restrain
  • Failure to monitor due to inattention or understaffing
  • Bedsores (decubitus ulcers) resulting from failure to turn an immobile resident often enough
  • Infections such as sepsis that result from inadequate sanitation or care of wounds

We have the financial and medical resources necessary to provide the quality legal advocacy that your elderly loved one deserves. We seek out the best available experts from throughout the country to review potential claims and examine whether you are entitled to compensation.
