When you entrust your elderly family member to a nursing home or caregiver, you should have the confidence that your loved one will be cared for.

However, elder abuse and nursing home neglect are unfortunately much more common than you may expect.

Thousands of elderly persons are abused or neglected each year. Tragic abuse situations may include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Psychological abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial exploitation
  • Resident-on-resident abuse
  • Neglect or abandonment

If medical negligence on the part of a healthcare professional or a nursing home resulted in injury to yourself or a loved one, you may be entitled to receive compensation.

The elder neglect attorneys and nursing home lawyers at Patton, Nix & Young are prepared to investigate and pursue your case for your full measure of damages.

You Deserve The Best Care

Under federal law, all residents placed in nursing homes have the right to be free from neglect and abuse and should be treated with the utmost dignity and respect.

However, residents often become victims in the same facilities in which their families have entrusted to care for them.

Nursing home residents and elderly loved ones assigned a caregiver could experience neglect and abuse in many ways, including:

  • Lack of proper care or treatment of bed sores, which may result in serious infections and, in some cases, amputations.
  • Residents who leave the facility due to a lack of monitoring and become lost, injured, or killed.
  • Employees or other residents who physically or sexually abuse residents.
  • Slips and falls due to a lack of monitoring.

These tragic and traumatic events can almost always be avoided with well trained and attentive nursing home staff and caregivers. However, when nursing home abuse and neglect occur, you can be confident that you have a nursing home abuse lawyer in Longview, TX who is on your side.
