Emotional Abuse

Harassment, demeaning language, yelling, isolation, embarrassment, and punishment can all be considered examples of emotional abuse. Many people fail to appreciate that abuse can occur without physical contact. If a patient is made to feel belittled in any way, has his or her rights violated, or is simply ignored, it can greatly impact the patient's quality of life. If this has occurred to your loved one, our team can help protect his or her rights. < Learn More About Emotional Abuse

Neglect and Abandonment

Though many people automatically envision physical assault when the term “nursing home abuse” is uttered, the reality is that many patients are simply ignored, neglected, or abandoned. Unfortunately, because nursing home residents are dependent on others for their care and treatment, such abandonment can result in significant injury, pain, and suffering. If your loved one was simply neglected by his or her care provider, let us help. We will work hard to ensure that the negligent parties are held responsible. < Learn More About Neglect and Abandonment

Physical Abuse

Any and all forms of physical abuse are a violation of your loved one's legal rights, and grounds for criminal and civil charges. If your loved one was struck, physically restrained, assaulted, squeezed, shoved, or physically abused in some other way, we strongly encourage you to contact local law enforcement officials to stop such abuse immediately. Once this pressing need has been addressed, you can consult with our attorneys regarding how best to move forward. < Learn More About Physical Abuse

Sexual Abuse

Any type of non-consensual sexual activity is considered abuse. Thus, while rape and molestation may be the most obvious examples of sexual abuse, other types of sexual abuse exist as well, such as being coerced into witnessing a sexual act or being photographed for sexually explicit purposes. If your loved one has reported being sexually abused, or you suspect that he or she is being abused, contact local law enforcement officials and seek counsel from a legal professional immediately. < Learn More About Sexual Abuse
