NJ elder abuse cases we handle
Nursing home patients are extremely vulnerable to abuse or neglect by the very caregivers who have been entrusted to care for and protect them. Regardless of what type of abuse you or your loved one suffers at a nursing home, we are here for you. Below are examples of the types of abuse cases our dedicated lawyers commonly deal with:
- Physical abuse: Physical abuse occurs when a nurse or other hospital staff member causes bodily harm or injury to a patient. Hitting, pushing, kicking, slapping or improperly restraining are all examples of physical abuse. In addition to causing serious injury, physical abuse may lead to wrongful death.
- Emotional abuse: A nurse or other nursing home staff member is liable for emotional abuse if they psychologically torment a patient. This may occur through degradation, harassment or physical threats.
- Neglect: Nursing homes have a responsibility to ensure the safety and care of their patients. A New Jersey nursing home abuse lawyer can help you file a lawsuit for damages if you or a loved one is deprived of food, water, shelter, hygiene or other aspects of general care. Additionally, deprivation of medication can result in sickness or death and may warrant a lawsuit for medical malpractice.
- Sexual abuse: This deplorable act occurs in nursing homes across the country.
Financial abuse and neglect
One of the most common types of harm the elderly suffer in nursing homes is financial abuse. This can range from small theft of toiletries and other belongings to missing financial documents and sudden withdrawals from bank accounts. If you are the victim of financial abuse, seek counsel from an experienced New Jersey nursing home abuse attorney.
