Put An End To Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect
When your elderly loved one moves to a nursing home or other residential facility, you expect that they are in the hands of experts who will provide adequate care. Tragically, this is not always the case. Sometimes, the caregivers, who are supposed to protect our relatives, abuse or neglect them instead.
At Fessler, Schneider & Grimme LLP, we represent people whose loved ones have suffered elder abuse at a nursing home. Our Kentucky attorneys have decades of experience identifying and ending the mistreatment of elders. We can also use legal action to help you file an injury lawsuit to hold the perpetrator accountable and recover compensation for your damages.
What Are The Signs Of Nursing Home Abuse?
It is not always easy to identify abuse or neglect. While abuse is often physical, it can also by emotional, financial and psychological. Some common symptoms of elder abuse include:
- Bruises, cuts and scars
- Poor hygiene
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Fear of a caregiver, a nurse or another staff member
- Suspicious financial withdrawals or transfers
- Depression, anxiety and emotional withdrawal
- Unanticipated death
If you suspect that your loved one is enduring abuse, trust your gut. Contact us at Fessler, Schneider & Grimme LLP, and we can help you gather evidence to determine whether you have a case.
Elder Abuse Is Never The Victim’s Fault
We understand that this experience is, without a doubt, incredibly emotionally painful. It is common for the children and other relatives of the victim to feel guilty for inadvertently placing them in harm’s way. But nursing home abuse is never, ever the fault of the victim or their family. At Fessler, Schneider & Grimme LLP, we provide nonjudgmental counsel and a caring ear for the families of elder abuse survivors.
