Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuits in Bonita Springs

Bonita Springs Personal Injury Lawyer Defending the Victims of Elder Abuse

Searching for a lawyer for nursing home abuse in Bonita Springs? If you trusted a nursing home or assisted living facility to take care of an elderly family member, you have a right to feel outrage upon learning that your loved one has been victimized with emotional or physical abuse. Older people require more care and assistance with everyday tasks of living, from personal hygiene and nutrition, to following the medication schedule and even getting out to socialize.

They also require help in an emergency, such as in a slip and fall accident, and in many cases delays in securing medical care can be critical. An astonishing number of elderly people every year suffer in unacceptable living conditions in the nursing homes in our area, but by taking legal action now you may not only be able to secure justice for your loved one but could also protect others from elder abuse by exposing the situation.

Negligence in nursing homes takes many forms, and the result can have serious negative consequences for the victim. Social isolation can result in reduced self-esteem and estrangement, while neglect can lead to filthy living quarters and a rapid decline in personal hygiene. Nursing homes can also be held accountable when individual staff members have perpetrated physical violence or sexual or emotional abuse upon a resident. Fatal abuse can provide the victim's family with grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit against the facility.

Common Signs of Elder Abuse

Don't assume that your loved one will speak out about the situation—the victims of nursing home abuse are frequently reluctant to say anything, either out of shame or embarrassment or even due to fear of retaliatory actions against them. Signs you should watch for include unexplained bruises or broken bones, dehydration or sudden weight loss, filthy living quarters and changes in mood or behavior.

An attorney from Pittman Law Firm, P.L. can review your case, investigate the situation for evidence to support your claim and will fight to help you hold the guilty party responsible for the injuries your loved one has suffered.
