Los Angeles Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Protect Your Loved One Against Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse takes many forms, but it always results in needless pain and suffering on the part of dependent adults who are powerless to defend themselves. Frequently, elders placed in these homes cannot communicate adequately to staff or to their families regarding the abusive treatment or conditions in which they are living. Long term neglect or mistreatment can result in unnecessary injuries, mental trauma or physical illness. If you or a loved one is suffering from abuse in a nursing home or residential care facility, you need an experienced Los Angeles elder abuse lawyer to investigate and fight for your right to proper care and treatment. We are passionate advocates for the respectful and proper care of dependent adults and handle each case with compassion and personal commitment.
It has been said that a country can be judged by the treatment of its elders, and with the aging of our population has come a proliferation of nursing homes, residential care and assisted living facilities. Unfortunately, not all of these businesses offer the standard of care that dependent adults require and fall short of the quality their promotion promises. Lack of appropriate training of nursing staff is widespread and often these homes are understaffed. Also responsible for abusive treatment of dependent adults are the unscrupulous actions of nursing home staff and sometimes family members in attempts to use the assets of the elder for their personal gain. The resulting abuses include malnutrition,
unsanitary conditions, mental suffering caused by
