Putting An End To Nursing Home Abuse
Senior citizens are especially vulnerable to maltreatment. When they suffer injuries at the hands of abusive nursing home staff, they can face life-threatening odds, high medical bills and a significantly reduced quality of life.
Unfortunately, it’s not easy to determine whether your relative is suffering abuse in a Michigan nursing home. At Lipton Law, we think that families shouldn’t have to feel left in the dark about their loved ones’ well-being. That’s why we’ve spent years working to improve our knowledge of how abuse occurs and how to hold the accountable responsible.
Our lawyers are proud to help nursing home abuse and neglect victims and their families manage complicated cases and receive the justice they deserve.
What Constitutes Nursing Home Abuse?
Abuse can take many forms, and some may not be obvious to the casual observer. For instance, your relative might not have suffered direct physical violence, but this doesn’t mean that he or she is not being abused. Instead, your relative could have been subjected to:
- Negligent actions such as providing insufficient supervision, failing to render necessary medical treatment or not maintaining safe premises
- Unwanted sexual advances and assault
- Emotional, verbal or psychological abuse
Although all of these situations are clearly wrong, it is up to you to demonstrate that the abuse occurred. You will also need to show how the abuse adversely affected your relative’s life or financial standing.
Our team works to help you fulfill these legal obligations so that you can bring a stronger case to court. We offer aggressive, knowledgeable representation and strive to establish your winning argument.
