Protection Against Elderly Abuse
When elderly individuals are no longer able to care of themselves, they are often placed in nursing homes to be assisted by caregivers. While many of these nursing homes are highly qualified and employ caring individuals, there are many homes that employ incompetent and uncaring people. When these individuals are hired as caregivers, their patients can greatly suffer from various kinds of abuse in the nursing home.
This abuse may include any of the following as well as others:
- Sexual abuse
- Verbal abuse
- Not feeding
- Not cleaning/changing
It is a very sad situation when this occurs as these elderly individuals are reliant upon their abusers for economic and personal provision and care. If you or your loved one has suffered from nursing home abuse then you may be entitled to collect money damages for your injuries, as well as for the pain and hardship that you have endured. It is important that you retain skilled legal assistance in your case in order to fight for your rights, your goals and your desires in your case.
