Elder Abuse Lawyers Serving Texas and Nationwide
Nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other elder care facilities are entrusted by many families to take good care of their loved ones who require assistance and medical treatment. Unfortunately, not all elder care facilities live up to this trust or responsibility, and residents suffer greatly as a result. Nursing home negligence is a rising problem in Texas, and families who are concerned about signs of abuse need to speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
When one person in an elder care facility is being neglected, it is a good bet that others are receiving the same poor treatment. By reporting any signs of abuse, you may be protecting your loved one as well as other residents in the same facility. At the Edwards Law Firm, we are appalled by nursing home negligence and stand beside residents and their families who have been subjected to this substandard or abusive care.
Nursing Home Negligence Attorneys in Corpus Christi
There are many reasons why nursing home abuse and neglect occurs — none of them acceptable — including poorly trained staff, understaffed facilities, a failure to perform background checks on employees, and acts of negligence on the part of staff members. Bed sores, dehydration, wandering and other injuries can occur as a result of this treatment.
In the worst cases, where loved ones are being abused in addition to neglect, physical and sexual abuse can result in significant physical pain and injury. These cases need to be aggressively pursued, and facilities that allow this behavior to go on should be held financially accountable. Our lawyers can handle these complex cases and can also look past attempts to conceal this behavior by nursing home administrators.
