Nursing Home Negligence
Strong Advocates For Victims Of Nursing Home Neglect
Placing a loved one into a nursing home or assisted living facility is a tough decision. When people make that decision, they do so believing that it is the best option for a family member who is no longer able to care for him or herself. Unfortunately, sometimes the professionals we trust with our loved ones do not live up to that standard and actually expose them to danger.
We are dedicated lawyers at Berriz Law Group. We work hard to hold those accountable for negligent and abusive behavior. If a loved one has been mistreated in a nursing home or if you suspect mistreatment, do not wait to contact us.
Types Of Mistreatment And Neglect
Abuse and neglect are difficult to spot, especially since families are not at the nursing home 24 hours a day. If you suspect something is wrong and that your loved one is not being properly cared for, we can help. Our firm can help you learn about the warning signs of abuse. We know what immediate action to take to stop the abuse and to find justice in your case.
Nursing home negligence and abuse can come in many forms, including:
- Bed sores, also known as decubitus ulcers or pressure ulcers
- Medication mistakes involving the wrong dose or wrong drug
- Bruises or cuts
Neglect and abuse can not only lead to physical injuries but emotional and mental harm as well. Our attorneys pay attention to you and your family, evaluating your specific situation to make sure all injuries and pain and suffering are documented in your case.
Protecting Senior Citizens From Abuse
We believe that our most vulnerable citizens deserve aggressive protection from being abused and disregarded by those entrusted with their care. Nursing home employees and owners can be held liable for negligence and abuse. Our firm has experience representing victims and their families in Thousand Oaks, San Fernando Valley and throughout Southern California.
As strong advocates for the victims of nursing home negligence, we will not be satisfied until we achieve a settlement or verdict that is in the best interest of your loved one.
