Nursing home abuse is one of the most devastating yet under reported crimes across our country. With a shrinking number of people who are actually qualified to take care of elderly patients in nursing home settings, and corporations increasingly taking over operations of such facilities, it has become harder and harder to verify that safety can be assured. In a bid to maximize profit, staff can be cut back and individuals who lack the necessary skill set are increasingly being hired because they’re willing to accept lower salaries.
It’s a recipe for potential disaster, and that’s why Attorney Jeffrey Lucas of the Lucas Law Firm wants to help those who have been taken advantage of by this system. The firm has assisted those persons who have been injured in a wide variety of accidents. Nursing home abuse is one of the practice areas we can help with, and we want to assist you any way we can.
Nursing home abuse can take many forms, some of them going beyond the most obvious types of grievances. Persons might qualify to file a nursing home abuse lawsuit if they have been the victims of:
In each of these instances, the victim is entitled to receive financial compensation from those who have inflicted harm. Whether it be a staff member who abused their status within the care facility or a relative who used scare tactics or outright lies to take advantage of a Power of Attorney privilege, the victim deserves recompense for what they’ve been put through.
Have you or a loved one suffered because of nursing home abuse? If so, realize that you’re not alone. It’s estimated that 240,000 instances of elder abuse take place every single year in the United States, and many of these take place in those institutions meant to provide care.
