Unexplained Injuries & Elder Abuse
Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer in Los Angeles
Injuries that are not easily explained may be an indicator of elder abuse or nursing home abuse. At Pacific Attorney Group, we represent clients throughout the greater Los Angeles area who have been victimized by nursing home abuse or elder abuse of any kind. Unexplained injuries may be a sign of abuse, and if you have noticed any constant bruises, cuts or other injuries that your loved one or the caregiver cannot explain, this may mean that they were caused by abusive treatment or negligence. A Los Angeles nursing home abuse lawyer at our offices can meet with you to determine what legal rights you have and what can be done at this point to put an end to this situation.
An important step you can take toward preventing abuse and stopping abuse when it does occur is to visit your loved one frequently. Vary your visiting schedule as well to make sure the nursing home or caregiver is not always expecting you. If you notice any recurring bruises or other injuries that may indicate physical abuse, do not hesitate to ask questions about where they came from. Confronting the caregiver can help you discover the truth of what occurred. Asking your loved one exactly what happened, can also help:
- What caused the injury?
- Did they receive medical attention?
- Did they tell their caregiver about the injury?
The family of an elderly patient who is injured in a Los Angeles nursing home should be notified in the event of an injury. Unfortunately, some injuries may go unreported and even untreated, resulting in serious injury.
