Defending those who are suffering from elder abuse or neglect

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.

Those who are suffering from abuse in a nursing home may display certain symptoms. This can include depression, bedsores, worsening of existing medical conditions and unexplained injuries. If a loved one has lost weight, refuses to eat or has tried to leave the facility without permission, that may also be a sign of abuse or neglect.

If you believe that your loved one has been mistreated or is suffering from elder abuse or neglect, it is important to reach out for legal assistance as soon as possible. We are particularly experienced in these types of cases, and we know how to hold West Virginia nursing homes, care facilities and workers accountable for their actions and negligence. We are ready to help concerned family members, starting with a complete evaluation in order to provide an overall assessment of the case. You can also visit our sitefor additional information.
