About Nursing Home Injuries

There are various injuries - physical and emotional in nature - that may be related to negligence or abuse in a Los Angeles nursing home. Nursing homes and assisted living facilities have the legal obligation to provide their patients or residents with a standard level of care in all aspects of their stay, including as related to medical care, hygiene, nutrition, and more. A single act of negligence or abusive treatment may leave an elderly person in a nursing home's care with serious injuries. Following are some examples of potential nursing home injuries that may indicate abuse or neglect:

  • Bruises or lacerations
  • Signs of restraint: marks on the wrists and/or ankles
  • Broken bones
  • Head trauma
  • Bedsores
  • Infections
  • Burns
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Recurring illness
  • Serious side effects to medicine
  • Injuries sustained in a slip and fall
  • Injuries sustained because your loved one wandered off or left the facility
  • Any injuries that cannot easily be explained

If you have observed any nursing home injuries, do not wait to contact a Los Angeles nursing home injury lawyer at our law firm. Acting quickly is important in order to stop any abusive conduct or negligence on the part of a caregiver or facility and can help prevent further injury. You may be able to file a claim or lawsuit against the responsible party, offering you the opportunity to recover financial damages for medical care and other losses or expenses associated with the injuries. The consequences of nursing home abuse may be far-reaching and may affect an elderly person for the rest of your life, long after physical injuries have healed.
