How to Spot Signs of Abuse in Nursing Homes
You may be unsure whether your loved one’s reports of abuse are truthful, especially if your loved one has dementia or another condition that affects behavior and memory.
To help you determine whether abuse is occurring to your loved one, it can be helpful to look for certain signs. Even if your loved one refuses to discuss the potential abuse out of fear or embarrassment, looking for these signs can help you discover what is happening.
Some of the signs to look for, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), include:
- Physical abuse: This may include unexplained cuts, bruises, burns, and other signs of physical force
- Emotional abuse: This may include acting withdrawn or showing fear around certain people at the facility
- Sexual abuse: This may include bruising or bleeding around the genitals or torn clothing
We Will Negotiate with the Insurer on Your Behalf
When you choose to bring a personal injury case against the nursing home to try to receive compensation, the insurance company representing the facility will take over the case. If your injuries are severe and if the compensation amount could be significant, the insurer will have multiple lawyers and adjusters on its side.
We Can File a Personal Injury Lawsuit on Your Behalf
Count on us to stand up to the insurance company lawyers when they try to present aspects of the case that simply are not true. We will stick to the facts to show why you deserve the settlement amount we are requesting.
We will negotiate with the insurance company to try to reach a fair settlement. However, if the insurer refuses to listen to the facts or does not negotiate in good faith, we are more than willing to present your side of the story in a trial.
