Putting An End To Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect
You looked up to them as a child, disagreed with them as a teenager, and respect and cherish them as an adult. When the time came to make sure they were properly cared for, you did the research and found a nursing home or assisted living facility you could trust to protect your parents.
How can you make things right after that trust has been betrayed? The first step is making sure you have an attorney capable of investigating the issues present in the case and the trial skills necessary to hold them accountable in the civil justice system.
You will find such lawyers at Restovich Braun & Associates. Our personal injury lawyers are dedicated to representing the interests of families who have been harmed as a result of abuse and neglect in nursing homes.
Nursing Home Abuse
As demand for nursing homes increases due to an aging population, the result has been people working in nursing homes who should simply not be allowed to. If your loved one suffered harm as a result of physical or sexual abuse, we will investigate the hiring practices to determine whether a background check was performed, and we will pursue compensation from all liable parties.
As nursing homes fill up and facilities struggle to find enough competent employees, the quality of care has fallen. When things like regular feedings, bathing and attention fall through the cracks, it can result in bedsores, malnutrition and other symptoms of neglect. It is simply unacceptable that so many unqualified nursing assistants are allowed in positions of patient care, and we will fight to make things right for your family.
If your loved one has suffered from a lack of care or physical abuse, contact us online or call 507-218-2004 for a free consultation. We represent families in Rochester and throughout southern Minnesota.
