Elder Abuse and Nursing Home Neglect
Abusive and Neglectful Nursing Homes Can and Should be Held Responsible
Nursing homes are supposed to be clean, safe and nurturing environments
for the elderly individuals who are in their care. Unfortunately though,
there are facilities that neglect or abuse their residents. This type
of criminal activity is especially appalling because these individuals
often times cannot protect themselves and aren't even aware that there
is a problem. Nursing home caregivers are paid extremely well to provide
the care, attention and supplies that are needed, but what is sometimes
discovered is that they are physically, financially and emotionally abusing
If you or a loved one has been abused or neglected at a nursing home facility,
the first step you should take is to speak with a knowledgeable Los Angeles
personal injury lawyer about your situation. Nursing home caregivers that either abuse or neglect
their residents, or both, can and should be held liable for hurting innocent
victims or the
wrongful death that has occurred because of their actions, or lack there of.
