Has Your Loved One Suffered Abuse Or Neglect In A Georgia Nursing Home?
When you entrust an elderly or incapacitated loved one to a nursing home, you expect they’ll be well cared for. Learning that they’ve instead been mistreated – whether through abuse or neglect – can come as a horrific shock. Sadly, this kind of mistreatment is far too common in nursing homes across Georgia.
At AA Law, we’re committed to helping nursing home abuse victims and their families seek justice. If you’ve learned that your loved one has been mistreated, contact us for guidance. We can help you take swift legal action – including pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death claim on your loved one’s behalf.
How A Personal Injury Claim Can Help Your Loved One
When you reach out to us with suspicions of nursing home abuse or neglect, our first priority is keeping your vulnerable loved one safe and getting them the quality care they need. Our attorneys can also get to work building a strong case against the nursing home and any other negligent parties.
Through a successful personal injury claim, you can recover damages (compensation) for your loved one’s medical care as well as their pain and suffering. Our goal is to keep your loved one safe and secure the financial recovery necessary to provide them with a high quality of life, for the rest of their life.
Examples Of Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse can take many forms. It encompasses intentional mistreatment as well as neglect. Examples of nursing home abuse cases include:
- Bedsores from failure to reposition patients
- Dehydration or malnutrition from neglect
- Medical complications from failure to secure appropriate care and treatment
- Falls from inadequate supervision
- Wandering (also called elopement) from inadequate supervision
- Physical and sexual abuse
If the abuse contributed to your loved one’s death, you may have grounds to bring a wrongful death claim.
