Nursing Home Negligence
Ready to Help Whenever You Need Us
Elderly Abuse Lawyer
When we place an elder loved one in the care of a nursing home or assisted living facility, we place a great deal of trust in the caregivers and personnel at the facility. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse statistics show that 30% of the facilities are cited for instances of abuse. Nursing home abuse takes a large toll on the 1.6 million nursing home residents nationwide.
Too often, elderly or disabled residents of long-term care facilities are not getting the attention they require and sometimes have to compete with dozens of other residents for the attention of too few staff. As a result, all too often residents who require assistance in activities of daily living (ADL) such as feeding, bathing, toileting, walking, etc., are not receiving adequate care. Such neglect can lead to disastrous consequences such as debilitating falls, the development of painful and immobilizing decubitus ulcers, malnutrition and sometimes death.
You have the right to take legal action against the facility or caregiver responsible for your elder loved one’s injuries and suffering. Many Nursing home cases involve complexities that a board certified trial lawyer is best equipped to handle. Alan Sackrin is an experienced injury lawyer who strives to help his clients obtain maximum recovery of damages for their injuries.
