Nursing Home Injuries

Hunterdon, Warren and Somerset County Elder Abuse Attorney

Elder abuse takes many forms, but one of the most common areas of elder abuse comes from nursing home injuries. At the Murgatroyd Law Group , we have handled nursing home injuries resulting from neglect, abuse or mistreatment. Nursing homes are chronically under-funded and as a result, provide poor care, or lapse into an abusive, neglectful environment. Under funding cannot excuse sub-standard care or abuse care of our most vulnerable citizens. Nursing home neglect and abuse is against the law.

If you or a loved one have been injured because of abuse, mistreatment or neglect, contact a knowledgeable nursing home injury lawyer immediately. It is important to correct the situation as soon as possible. Moreover, you or your family member may be entitled to compensation because of your injuries.

Unfortunately, nursing home neglect and abuse can be a "hidden problem" because the victims are often not capable of expressing pain or reporting the neglect or abuse on their own. Thus, it is extraordinarily important that others be watchful for any signs or symptoms of abuse.

Some signs of nursing home abuse or neglect may include:

  • Pressure sores
  • Poor nutrition
  • Over-medication
  • Poor sanitation in the facility
  • Failure to bathe bed-ridden patients
  • Broken bones and hips from unexplained falls
  • Verbal abuse
  • Significant weight loss
  • Dehydration
  • Depression
  • Falls resulting from lack of adequate precautions or assistance
  • Presence of unjustified chemical or physical restraints
  • Unexplained mood changes

If you observe unexplained injuries or poor conditions such as these, consult a caring and experienced nursing home injury attorney.
