Springfield Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Was Your Loved One Abused or Neglected?

When an elderly family member needs more care than you can provide, you may consider putting him or her in a nursing home facility. While nursing homes are supposed to be places of care and comfort where your loved one can get the professional assistance they need, sadly, this is not always the case. Some nursing homes are places of abuse and neglect.

If your loved one suffered neglect or abuse while living in a Missouri nursing home, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.

The Springfield personal injury lawyers at Strong-Garner-Bauer P.C. can help you understand your legal options. Your initial consultation is free and confidential, so you have nothing to lose by contacting our firm today.

Examples of Nursing Home Negligence

Nursing home negligence is any act that deprives your loved one of the care he or she needs. Ultimately, this withholding of care could cause your loved one serious harm. When this happens, you and your family should act to hold the nursing home accountable.

Common examples of nursing home negligence include:

  • Malnourishment
  • Withholding of medication
  • Lack of care
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional abuse

Recognizing the Warning Signs of Elder Abuse

Sadly, spotting the signs of nursing home abuse and neglect is not always easy—especially if your loved one is reluctant to speak up. This is why you should know what to look for if you suspect that your family member has been mistreated or abused in a nursing home.

Some of the most common warning signs of elder abuse include:

  • Unexplained bruises or lacerations
  • Symptoms of dehydration or malnutrition
  • Sudden changes in mood or behavior
  • Development of bed sores / pressure ulcers
  • Reluctance to speak in front of staff members
  • Unsanitary or unclean living conditions
