Alabama Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Elderly and infirm residents of nursing homes are extremely vulnerable and subject to physical abuse by frustrated staff and residents suffering from mental illness. Assaults by unsupervised staff and residents are among the leading causes of injuries in long-term care centers. Unfortunately, vulnerable senior citizens are often unwilling to report assault. If you suspect that your loved one's injuries are the result of physical abuse at a nursing home in Alabama, talk to a personal injury trial lawyer at the Drake Law Firm in Birmingham right away.
Investigating Beyond the Bruises
Nursing home assault injuries are easy to cover up. Be on guard for signs of physical or emotional abuse if your loved one exhibits fear or concern about a particular staff member or resident. We will investigate the facility's past record to determine whether the management has been cited for a record of negligence or abuse in the past. In addition, the management may not have screened adequately to determine whether the employee or resident has a history of physical abuse at other facilities.
We are proud of our successful record of helping injury victims and their families recover full and fair money damages for a wide range of nursing home negligence claims, including:
- Injuries from assault or physical abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Prescription errors
- Malnutrition, dehydration, improper diet
- Fall and wheelchair transport injuries
