Los Angeles Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Nursing Home Negligence and Elder Abuse in Southern California
Nursing home negligence and
elder abuse are becoming increasingly important issues throughout the United States. As people continue to live longer and as the baby boomer population transitions into older adulthood, it is estimated that there will be as many as 86.7 million people over the age of 65 in the U.S. by the year 2050. It is only natural that many of these older adults will require some form of assisted living, whether this is at a nursing home,
assisted living facility or through the services of a
home healthcare aide.
Many of the facilities that provide for our elderly loved ones provide compassionate care and a safe, healthy environment that meets an elder's needs. Unfortunately, however, there are also facilities that are negligent in their care and caregivers who are careless or outright abusive. The presence of negligence, malpractice and mistreatment is often magnified by the fact that many elderly patients cannot fully communicate what is occurring or do not know where to turn to for help. That is why we at
Accident Lawyers are so dedicated to protecting the rights of the elderly in situations involving nursing home abuse and negligence.
Nursing Home Abuse
An elderly person may be subjected to various kinds of ill treatment at a nursing home. At times, this may take on the form of physical abuse or sexual abuse, or the abuse may be psychological in nature. In other situations, mistreatment may come in the form of neglect, leading to dehydration, malnutrition or bedsores. No matter the type of abuse that an elderly loved one may have been subjected to in a Los Angeles area nursing home, you can count on the experience and skill of the team at our firm. We know how to investigate and prove that nursing home abuse has occurred and are committed not only to helping victims recover compensation but to fighting against elder abuse of all kinds in nursing homes and assisted living facilities statewide.
