Elder Abuse

Minnesota & Nebraska Elderly Abuse Attorneys

There are many types of elder abuse that occur in nursing homes throughout the country every single day. This abuse takes the form of physical and sexual abuse, as well as financial abuse. Sadly, these abuses occur in the nursing homes that families entrust with the care of their loved ones. It is not expected that such abuses would occur in a place that pledges to care for its residents.

Seeking Justice For Your Loved One

When you suspect that a loved one is being abused, it is important to speak to a nursing home injury attorney as soon as possible. Common signs of elder abuse include:

  • Unexplained anxieties or fears
  • Unexplained injuries or bruising
  • Missing personal items
  • Unplanned withdrawals or discrepancies from bank accounts
  • Unexplained credit card charges
  • Excessive emergency room admissions

Abuse is common among nursing home residents because of their vulnerability. They can be abused by staff members or other residents at the facility due to poor supervision. If the nursing home staff is not giving you the answers that you need, our attorneys can help you.
