Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers in Orange County

Protecting the Elderly & Fighting for Compensation

When you turn the care of your elderly relatives over to a nursing home or assisted living center, you trust that the staff will provide your loved ones with the respectful assistance they deserve. Unfortunately, this is not always the case; some nursing homes fail to provide residents with dignified care, and vulnerable residents often suffer from abuse or neglect. If you suspect that your beloved relative is suffering at the hands of their care providers, do not wait to contact a nursing home abuse attorney in Orange County to learn about your legal options.

Types Of Nursing Home Abuse

Abuse in nursing homes and assisted living centers can involve a variety of factors and situations, but there are three main types of abuse. Physical abuse most commonly involves beatings, sexual assault, neglect of basic needs, and the forced ingestion of medicine or food. Mental or emotional abuse includes verbal threats, insults, humiliation, and mistreatment. Financial abuse is committed when staff members steal residents' money, jewelry, and other possessions or when they coerce, trick, or fraudulently lead residents to leave them assets in their wills.

Common Signs Of Neglect And Abuse

Although every situation is different, there are a number of signs that can indicate that a senior citizen may be sustaining abuse or neglect because of the nursing home staff.

The red flags of abuse include:

  • Poor hygiene
  • Significant change in weight
  • Sudden hair loss
  • Unusual bleeding or bruises
  • Unexplained broken bones, infections, cuts, or burns
  • Unexplained trips to the doctor or emergency room
  • Sudden emotional detachment
  • Unresponsiveness
  • Sudden and unexplained change in temperament or mood
  • Unusual financial transactions
  • Disappearance of personal possessions

If you have noticed any of the signs of abuse mentioned above, or if you have other reasons to suspect that your loved one is being abused in their nursing home, contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible to discuss your legal options.
