Experienced Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer Serving Massachusetts and Pennsylvania

If you suspect your loved one is being abused in a nursing home, you need to see legal advice. Let us help you to gather the evidence you need to hold the facility accountable.

People in the United States are living longer and this means that many families have to rely on nursing homes to help care for their loved ones. Unfortunately, nursing homes aren’t always as safe as they should be and families sometimes have to seek help from a nursing home abuse attorney. Whether your elderly loved one was abused once or multiple times they have the right to recover damages. By working with a professional elder law attorney from nursing home abuse law firm, you can protect both your loved ones and other residents.

How A Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer Can Help You

All states, territories, and the District of Columbia have laws to protect individuals from elder abuse. There are also federal laws in place. In Massachusetts, the legislation is set out in Chapter 19A of the General Laws while Pennsylvania’s laws are contained in the Older Adults Protective Services Act. A nursing home abuse advocate can help to make sense of the legislation and guide you in how to report nursing home abuse.

At Miller Law Firm, PC, we understand all the factors that apply to nursing home neglect and abuse cases in both states. We will draw on our wealth of resources to ensure that anyone who harmed your loved one is held accountable. At the same time, we show compassion to victims and their families. We fight hard for every client who comes through our doors and sees an elder law attorney.

You need to call a nursing home abuse attorney if your loved reports that they’re being harmed.

What Are the Signs of Nursing Home Abuse?

  • Elder abuse can take the form of:
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional or psychological abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Neglect

If your parent or relative has experienced any of these types of abuse, you must contact a nursing home abuse attorney as soon as possible. Signs of nursing home abuse will vary depending on the type of abuse. However, they typically include:

  • Bedsores
  • Unexplained cuts, bruises, burns, or broken bones
  • Genital infections or sexually transmitted diseases
  • Sudden behavioral changes
  • Over-sedation
  • Missing personal items
  • Residents not be allowed to see visitors
  • Large withdrawals from bank accounts

Older people often don’t know how to report nursing home abuse.
