Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence Attorney in Newark
When you choose to place a loved one into a nursing home or in hospice
care, you do so assuming that he or she will be taken care of to the best
of the facility's abilities. For most individuals, nursing homes seem
like the right choice, especially considering that many people lack the
proper amenities to provide long-term care for someone who is aging and
may be ill.
If you have placed a loved one in a nursing home and you are now aware
that he or she may have been abused or suffered severe negligence, you need to
contact The King Law Firm right away. We understand that this may be frustrating and you may feel
disheartened, but you need to work with a Newark personal injury lawyer
as soon as possible. Our team can help you establish who is liable for
the incident(s) and help you receive compensation for the wrongs that
your loved one has faced.
How Do I Know If Negligence Actually Occured
It is never easy to learn that your loved one has been abused, especially
when you placed them in a nursing home you considered to be trustworthy.
In most cases, abuse or neglect could have been prevented, so it is important
that the wrongful parties are held accountable for their actions. There
are various types of abuse that can occur in a nursing facility, and while
no two situations are alike, we have experience advocating on behalf of
clients who have suffered:
- Emotional abuse
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Financial abuse
- Lack of medication or overmedication
- Withholding of food and water
- Unnecessary use of restraints or force
It may not always be completely noticeable that your loved one is suffering
from abuse or neglect, but some signs to watch for include unexplained
bruises or cuts, a sudden change in behavior, unexplainable weight loss,
or withdraws from a back account that were not made by the account's
owner. If you suspect abuse or neglect, do not hesitate to contact The
King Law Firm right away.
