While we would like to think that our loved ones are being cared for when left in the care of others, the unfortunate reality is that nursing home neglect and abuse often occur. Elderly or disabled loved ones who are cared for by other individuals or within institutions may not have the ability to effectively communicate when issues arise. If you suspect that a family member or loved one may be suffering from abuse or neglect, it is important to take initiative and talk to a lawyer. At Wagners, we represent victims of nursing home incidents that have resulted in serious injuries and illnesses.
Experienced Lawyers Handling Nursing Home Negligence Cases
Nursing home injury cases require the attention of an experienced lawyer. We at Wagners represent victims of nursing home abuse and neglect in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and beyond. When we undertake an injury case, we conduct a thorough investigation of the nursing home’s staff and procedures, and we ask critical questions about the incident.
Signs Of Abuse And Neglect
Detecting the signs of nursing home abuse can be difficult, especially if your loved one is unable to communicate to you how or why an injury occurred. Common signs of abuse can include:
- Unexplained bed sores
- Fractures and broken bones
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Injuries from wandering off
Even the most caring family members may not be able to get the information they need about their loved one’s care. At Wagners, we can help.
