Protecting Your Loved Ones From Caregiver Neglect
Many times it becomes necessary to entrust the care of an elderly family member to a nursing home, assisted living facility or in-home personal caregiver. Families rely on trained medical professionals to provide their loved ones with the care and respect they deserve toward the end of their lives.
Unfortunately, sometimes our parents and grandparents suffer from neglect and abuse at the hands of those we trusted.
If you suspect that your family member is the victim of caregiver or nursing home abuse, contact our attorneys in Concord, California, at 925-852-6014. At the Mullin Law Firm, we stand up for the rights of the elderly and seek compensation for the terrible pain and suffering caused by elder abuse.
Examples Of Caregiver Neglect
Each year, thousands of California residents are injured while in the care of a nursing home or other facility. The staff members may not be carrying out their duties, or they may not have adequate training to provide elderly people with proper care. At the Mullin Law Firm, we will make sure that the accident and injuries are thoroughly investigated. We can assist you and your family if you believe an injury was caused by any of the following:
- Failure to train employees
- Failure to supervise
- Physical assault
- Sexual assault
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Broken bones
- Bed sores
- Unnecessary use of psychotropic drugs
- Medication errors and over medication
- Wrongful death
Our attorneys will help you seek damages for any increased medical care your elderly loved one requires as a result of the negligent care he or she received. We will also pursue damages for lack of quality of life in his or her remaining years.
