It is particularly heartbreaking when a helpless individual is abused, neglected or mistreated by those who are supposed to provide care. Our team is dedicated to helping elderly individuals in West Virginia who are suffering from elder abuse or neglect. We know how hard it is to see a loved one suffer, but we can help those who cannot help themselves seek a full recovery for their pain and injuries.
Elder abuse can be emotional or physical. Many nursing facilities are understaffed or workers are poorly trained, resulting in injuries, malnutrition and unsanitary conditions. This type of neglect or negligence can be devastating for residents, leading to emotional trauma in addition to physical pain. This treatment is likely not intentional, but facilities should always provide a certain level of care for those who are under their supervision.
