Signs of Neglect or Abuse
In the two decades that we have been in practice, we have seen the different forms of abuse inflicted upon many of our elderly. Most of the time, the residents of the nursing home are simply too weak or scared to speak up that the abuse or neglect just continues.
Here are some signs that can help determine if your loved one is being abused or neglected:
- Open wounds or cuts
- Bed sores
- Unexplained injuries
- Malnutrition or starvation
- Resident has become withdrawn or agitated
- Physical restraints
- Unsanitary conditions
- Unexpected or unexplained death of a resident
At The Legal Justice Center, we have the resources including a network of psychiatrist, therapists, and other professionals that can help validate your claim. Our Fort Lauderdale nursing home neglect attorney will thoroughly assess your particular case and craft a solid strategy geared towards recovering the maximum compensation possible.
