Nursing Home Abuse

Cape Cod Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Signs of Abuse in New Bedford Nursing Homes

Elderly citizens rely on nursing homes to take care of them and provide much needed living assistance and medical care. Nursing home abuse or neglect can include the following:

  • Overmedication
  • Lack of hygiene
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Neglect
  • Sexual abuse
  • Harmful use of constraints
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition

All of these forms of abuse can cause serious injuries and damage to any nursing home resident that is subjected to them. If your loved one has been abused in a nursing home, we urge you to contact a Cape Cod personal injury attorney from our firm. They will help you through this difficult time and file a claim against the negligent facility and any other liable parties.

Filing a Claim in Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect

Nursing home abuse injuries can be very serious, leading to severe injury or loss of life. Many elderly patients are unable to communicate that they are the victim of abuse, either due to a medical or cognitive condition, humiliation, or fear. We have over 25 years of experience in personal injury law and are prepared to pursue justice in these terrible injury cases. If you suspect your loved one is the victim of abuse, and the warning signs are there, such as unhygienic conditions, bruising, flinching, malnutrition, dehydration, overmedication, or other indicator of abuse or neglect, you must act quickly before further damage is done. Notify the authorities and contact our firm at once.

I was struggling trying to deal with the insurance company. Even though the accident wasn't my fault they made me feel like I was the one was to blame. The best thing I did was call Attorney Moffa.

I can't say enough good things about Attorney Moffa and his staff. My original lawyer didn't think my case was worth pursuing.
