We Make Them Answer For Neglect And Mistreatment
Nursing homes are supposed to provide the round-the-clock supervision and care that families cannot. Despite the exorbitant cost of elder care, many facilities are understaffed and mismanaged, which puts residents whose health is already compromised at risk for injury, illness and abuse.
The attorneys of Conner Riley Friedman & Weichler have decades of experience in personal injury, medical negligence and wrongful death litigation. We know the questions to ask in investigating suspected abuse or neglect in elder care facilities. We take swift action to get medical intervention for your loved one, and we vigorously pursue legal action to hold the nursing home accountable for your loved one’s pain and suffering or preventable death.
Our firm has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for the injured through our attention to detail and tenacious work ethic. We take the same approach to nursing home negligence such as:
- Bone fractures or head injuries from falling for lack of assistance or bed restraints
- Painful and dangerous bedsores from neglect of bedridden patients
- Physical, sexual or emotional abuse by staff members
- Undiagnosed medical conditions
- Dehydration and malnutrition from neglect
- Elopement (wandering off) from poor security and supervision
Start The Investigation
Elderly patients are often ignored when they complain of mistreatment, or cannot speak up for themselves because of their frailties or fear of reprisal. Often, nursing homes are reluctant to summon emergency medical care until too late. Perhaps your family member is uncharacteristically sad or anxious or withdrawn. Perhaps you have noticed unexplained injuries or ailments, or you are skeptical of the facility’s explanation.
