Hampton Nursing Home Neglect/Abuse Attorneys
Nursing homes and long-term care facilities are critical for older or disabled adults who cannot care for themselves and do not have the option of an in-home caretaker. Many families painstakingly research facilities to find the best one for their family member, and it is only natural to expect the highest standard of care, especially due to the high costs of these facilities. Unfortunately, some facilities do not ensure that residents receive proper care, and residents can suffer serious injuries as a result.
If your loved one sustained a preventable injury or illness at their nursing home, that facility should be held liable for all of the injuries and losses your loved one suffered. The law firm of Ben F. Windham, PC, represents the right of residents against wrongful facilities, so please contact a nursing home neglect and abuse lawyer in Hampton right away.
Common Nursing Home Injuries
Sometimes, older adults simply lose their balance and slip and fall without warning. Such accidents happen, and not all resident injuries are the result of nursing home misconduct. However, there are many injuries caused by:
- Physical abuse
- Mental abuse
- Sexual abuse
This type of conduct can result in many distressing injuries to residents, such as:
- Physical wounds
- Mental regression
- Emotional trauma
- Sexually-transmitted diseases
- Untreated medical conditions
- Medication errors and overdose
Nursing home neglect and abuse often go unreported, and it is often up to visiting loved ones to notice when something is wrong and if their loved one needs help.
