Nursing Home Abuse
When you help an elderly family member transition to nursing home or in-home care, you expect your loved one to be treated respectfully and compassionately. Unfortunately, all too often, caregivers do not live up to their duties. And even though nursing homes are required to abide by certain standards, they may still engage in activities that are considered illegal.
If the level of care provided by a nursing home or caregiver does not adhere to the law, you or your family member may have grounds to take legal action to put an end to any physical, emotional, sexual, or financial elder abuse. When you suspect that your loved one is being neglected or ill-treated at an elderly facility, now is the right time to discuss your case with a lawyer. An attorney from Martino & Tramontozzi, LLC can help you investigate your suspicions and determine whether a nursing home or its staff has acted improperly.
Should we discover that your loved one has been abused or neglected, we will advise you of your legal options so that you can put an end to the maltreatment. In some cases, this may mean speaking with nursing home management to stop the cycle of abuse. In more serious cases, we may advise you to file a personal injury action to hold the nursing home accountable for its actions or lack thereof.
We know that you expect your loved one to be treated with kindness, care, and dignity. Once you contact our firm, we’ll do all that we can to help you achieve that goal and protect your loved one’s rights. CALL US TODAY at 781.662.0900
