Warning Signs of Elder Abuse

Victims of elder abuse may be hesitant to report incidents of abuse for fear of retaliation by their caregivers. Others may be unable to voice their complaints. Family members are often the first to notice signs of abuse such as bruises, emergency room admissions or unexplained fears.

There are many different types of abuse that may occur in a nursing home setting such as:

  • Physical abuse
  • Excessive use of restraints
  • Overmedication of residents
  • Sexual abuse
  • Psychological or emotional abuse
  • Financial abuse such as theft, unauthorized use of credit cards or identity theft

If your family member has been abused by nursing home staff, the nursing home may be responsible for lack of supervision or proper employment screening. Our lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, so there are no fees unless we obtain a settlement or verdict for your family member.
