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:
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Medication errors
- Physical or sexual assault
- Physical or chemical restraints
- 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.
