Nursing Home  Abuse

Nursing Homes, Abuse.org

Nursing home abuse is common in the United States. Older adults get hurt, are neglected, and even die in the same facilities where they should be receiving proper care.

According to the federal government, “nursing home abuse means the willful infliction of injury, unreasonable confinements, intimidation, or punishment with resulting physical harm, pain, or mental anguish.” Nursing home abuse involves harm or injury done to an older adult intended to cause pain, suffering, or impairment.

If you believe that your loved one is experiencing elder abuse, a nursing home abuse lawyer can help with the following:

  • Identifying signs of abuse

  • Investigating reports of abuse

  • Establishing legal theories

  • Quantifying damages

  • Reporting damages

  • Exploring options to determine the best course of action


Your loved one has a legal right to be treated well. If you believe a family member was injured due to elder abuse, maltreatment, or neglect in a nursing home, contact us for a free case evaluation.
