Nursing Home Neglect
Friends and family members in nursing homes, long-term care facilities, and under at-home care, are some of the most vulnerable clients we serve. Whether in-patient or at home, cognitive defect, memory loss, loss of speech, and other medical issues make the sick and elderly critically susceptible to abuse and neglect at the hands of their caregivers.
At Forsythe Law, we have the resources to represent individuals and families across Indiana and Kentucky who have fallen victim to careless and sometimes malicious caregivers.
Telltale signs of abuse
Telltale signs of abuse include chronic bed sores, repeated falls, malnutrition, dehydration, unexplained injury, or wandering. If your loved one displays any of these or other signs of abuse, call Forsythe Law for professional advice.
Patient abuse cases involve complex issues of law and medicine. Consider engaging a lawyer with the necessary experience and resources to protect your loved one. Nursing home cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not get paid unless you obtain a recovery. Forsythe Law has helped families throughout Indiana and Kentucky obtain to compensation for serious injuries to some of the most vulnerable in our community.
Each year, thousands of our most vulnerable citizens are abused in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and personal care homes throughout the United States. Many of the victims are frail and cannot help themselves. These patients are entirely dependent upon their caregivers to meet their most basic needs. Often abuse can be traced to staffing issues, either a lack of staff or inadequately trained staff or both. At Forsythe Law, we are determined to protect your loved ones from these negligent, under resourced companies and facilities.
