How can a nursing home sexual abuse lawyer help?
Proving neglect in a nursing home can often be a difficult case. Factors such as any outstanding conditions the individual may have, the mental capacity of the victim, the circumstances surrounding the allegation of neglect, and even the victim’s history can all be important when assessing your case and proving nursing home neglect. Nursing home neglect can sometimes leave physical scars, but often it does not. Additionally, the emotional traumas and medical complications that result can be lasting, and could result in more financial and emotional hardship for you or your loved ones.
These factors combined can make nursing home neglect a complex case to prove without an extensive background in nursing home law. An experienced and skilled nursing home neglect lawyer will have access to investigative tools, experts, and the know-how necessary to prove that you or a loved one was neglected at the hands of nursing home staff and to win your case and get the justice that you deserve.

Types of Nursing Home Sexual Abuse Cases We Handle
When choosing an assisted living facility for a loved one, we try to make sure that the facility is well-kept, the caretakers are professional and qualified, and that there are no safety concerns for the residents. However, sometimes even the most thorough analysis of nursing home choices can overlook employees and others who harm residents by failing to perform their job duties, overlooking residents’ nutritional needs, hygienic needs, or other basic needs.
Unfortunately, nursing home neglect can manifest itself in many ways. Some of the common ways in which nursing home residents are neglected include:
- Social or emotional isolation: The resident is kept from other residents, or treated poorly or yelled at by nursing home staff.
- Basic needs: The nursing home staff fails to provide clean water, food, and a clean environment for nursing home residents.
- Medical needs: The nursing home staff fails to provide basic or advanced medical needs, including prevention, medication, and general attention.
- Hygiene: If the resident requires, the nursing home staff is not providing adequate assistance taking care of basic hygiene needs such as bathing, using the restroom, and even doing laundry or brushing their teeth.
Common physical, mental, and emotional signs of nursing home can include:
- Bedsores or ulcers
- Injuries (from falls)
- Sudden or pronounced weight loss
- Antisocial or withdrawn behavior
- Unfriendly interactions with nursing home staff or with other residents
