Las Vegas Nursing Home Negligence Attorney

Nursing homes are meant to offer the elderly a safe living environment where their long-term care needs will be met. Unfortunately, however, some nursing home residents discover their living environment is actually unsafe for them. Elderly patients may be physically, sexually, or emotionally abused at the hands of people they have paid to ensure their needs are met on a day-to-day basis. This abuse may be intentional or the result of negligence. Victims of nursing home abuse and their families can seek damages from the responsible parties through a personal injury civil action.


How to detect Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Nursing home residents are particularly vulnerable to abuse because they are often unable to take care of or defend themselves and may be unwilling or unable to report such abuse because of fear of embarrassment or limiting medical conditions. Family members should watch for the signs of abuse or neglect while visiting. Here are some of the signs to look for:

  • Bedsores and/or Frozen Joints are Signs of Inattention.
  • Bruises, cuts, broken bones, burns, and other physical injuries–signs of physical abuse.
  • Injuries to or infections of the genitals–signs of sexual abuse.
  • Unexplained behavior changes.
  • Suspicious behavior from the nursing home staff such as prohibiting or restricting visitation.
  • Unexplained medical sedation.
  • Unexplained financial transactions.
  • Nursing Home Fall Injuries.
  • Nursing negligence.

Proving Nursing Home Abuse Cases

When pursuing a nursing home abuse case, it’s important to choose a skilled attorney who is well versed in this area of personal injury law. Your Lawyer should have extensive knowledge about state statutes for standards of care in private nursing homes as well as licensing requirements and other relevant regulations. Because nursing home residents are often in poor health prior to entering the nursing home, defendants often argue that the resident’s preexisting medical conditions were the cause of the resident’s injuries, not abuse or neglect. An experienced attorney like the ones at Gabroy Law Office can help you establish the true cause of your or your loved one’s injuries and recover the maximum compensation. If you believe your loved one has been a victim of nursing home negligence, contact us today. Our team of professionals at Gabroy | Messer can help you navigate the legal system.
