It has been estimated that nearly 1 in 10 seniors in nursing facilities have experienced some kind of abuse or neglect. This is a difficult issue to face, and there are many factors at play within the situation, including physical and mental frailty of the victims, the power dynamics between caregivers and patients, social isolation within facilities, and many more. Nursing home abuse is growing into an epidemic, and our team here at KG Law is committed to finding justice for those affected by it. Unfortunately, most of these cases go unreported, so it’s important that if you suspect abuse of anyone in an assisted living facility, get in touch with the proper authorities right away.
Within the walls of a care facility, it may be easier for abusers to get away with their actions. Because of the close and regular contact between nurses, doctors, caregivers, and patients, different types of abusive dynamics may arise. Physical and sexual abuse, emotional or verbal abuse, the developing of bedsores, and neglect are all serious issues, and if you suspect that someone is harming or taking advantage of your aging loved one, reach out to us. KG Law is proud to defend against nursing home abuse in Los Angeles, and you can trust us to handle your case with tenacity and professionalism.
