Each year thousands of senior citizens are abused, neglected and exploited in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
Common injuries in nursing home and/or assisted living centers often include physical abuse resulting in bruising or broken bones. Often times we learn that our client have been denied some of the basic life necessities causing massive dehydration and malnutrition or infections from untreated bedsores. Injuries resulting from the misuse of restraints or the lack of bedrails are also commonplace in such settings.
Often this abuse goes undetected for many months or even years before family members are alerted, as many of the victims are unable to properly communicate the abuse. Therefore, it is imperative that family members closely monitor the treatment of their love ones and if there is even a hint of abuse to contact us immediately so that all necessary evidence relating to the abuse can be documented accurately.
While we sincerely hope no one you know ever experiences such abuse, rest assured that Diamond & Diamond™ is committed to protecting the rights of our senior citizens. Feel free to contact us immediately for a free consultation if you suspect that abuse has occurred. Call us for a free consultation at 1-800-567-HURT (4878).
