Nursing Home Abuse & Negligence

Nursing Home Abuse & NegligenceKentucky Nursing Home Injuries

In Kentucky, nursing homes are often our only option to care for our loved ones and parents. We trust that they will take care of our loved ones when we cannot be there. However, this leaves our elderly and infirmed to become potential victims to abuse and neglect. Too often nursing homes hire substandard staff and attempt to cut costs to the detriment of patient care.

Warning signs that your loved one may be a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect include:

  • bruising
  • bed sores
  • dehydration
  • broken bones
  • malnutrition

Many times the victim’s health is too poor to protect themselves from the events or even inform others about what is happening.

We will work hard to insure that the insurance companies treat you fairly and obtain payment of your medical bills, future care, lost wages, and compensation for your injuries.
