Connecticut Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

The Ferocious Legal Representation Your Loved Ones Deserve

Nursing home residents, among the most vulnerable members of our community, are entitled to proper care, dignity, and respect. Though many nursing homes do provide their residents with adequate levels of care, far too many do not. Profit-focused corporate chains have dominated the nursing home market for several years now. For-profit corporations prioritizing the bottom line over the safety and dignity of nursing home residents often leads to understaffing or inadequate training. A profit-driven focus on increasing the number of residents to the detriment of individualized care has led to a disturbing number of incidents involving neglect and abuse of seniors.

If you suspect that an elderly loved one may be suffering at the hands of their caretakers, contact our nursing home abuse lawyers in Connecticut today.

What Does Nursing Home Abuse Look Like?

Our regulatory and legislative bodies are struggling to cope with what has been described as an epidemic of neglect and abuse, making the civil justice system an even more important force for protecting our community.

Nursing home abuse or neglect cases often involve:

  • Falls
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Medication errors
  • Physical or sexual assault
  • Physical or chemical restraints
  • Sepsis
  • Understaffing
  • Choking
  • Wandering or elopement

Nursing homes often attempt to escape accountability on account of the resident’s age, life expectancy, or comorbidities. Life is precious, dignity is fundamental to our humanity, and long, productive lives are worthy of respect.
