What Counts As Nursing Home Abuse?
When a person is placed in a skilled nursing facility, care home or convalescent care unit, it’s often because they’re unable to live or recuperate alone without assistance to some degree. That may only include a few tasks, or you may have a loved one who needs round-the-clock care. All staff members at these health care facilities are supposed to take care of your loved one and protect their safety. They may break that trust instead.
You or a loved one may have suffered many types of abuse and abuse may not be an isolated type. Nursing home staff may hit, punch, or slap you or a loved one, and they may be stealing funds from your family at the same time. If you suspect any type of abuse, speak with an experienced personal injury attorney right away. At Albright, Stoddard, Warnick & Albright, we can connect you to the right authorities and take legal action now.
Below are a few types of nursing home abuse you or your loved one may have suffered:
- Physical abuse
- Verbal abuse
- Psychological abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Financial abuse
Compensation For Long-Term Care Facility Abuse Victims
When you or a loved one has experienced abuse in a health care facility, you may already be considering a lawsuit. But what is your claim worth?
Your lawsuit’s value is based on your damages, or losses caused by the abuse. These damages include the economic and noneconomic damages you’ve suffered. That means you should receive compensation for your pain and suffering, too – not just the financial losses you’ve suffered.
For example, say you or a family member suffered from bedsores caused by neglectful nursing home staff. You may be due more compensation than getting your medical treatment covered. You may also be due compensation for the pain and suffering the bed sores caused. Our experienced personal injury attorneys can help you calculate these losses.
