Many senior citizens are abused, neglected and exploited in nursing homes and other elder care facilities every year. Such abuse and neglect is unconscionable. Many of our seniors who are victimized are frail and vulnerable and cannot help themselves, depending on others to meet their most basic needs.
At Bendall & Mednick, our attorneys stand up for senior citizens when they do not have a voice against negligent care providers. Your loved one means everything to you, which is why your case means everything to us. Our promise is to help your loved one get the compensation he or she deserves.
Know The Signs Of Elder Abuse And Neglect
Legislatures in all 50 states have passed some form of an elder abuse prevention law. Knowing the warning signs of abuse is a first step toward protecting elderly friends or relatives. Sometimes all you might see is that first bruise or other symptoms such as:
- Malnutrition from missed meals
- Infections from untreated bedsores
- Pressure sores
- Unexplained bruises or broken bones
- Inadequate hygiene or clothing
- Missing medical or assistive devices, like dentures or walkers
If you believe someone is being neglected in a care facility, then there is a chance their fellow residents are also under threat from this neglect.
