When a loved one has suffered at the hands of those who should take care of them, they may need help filing a nursing home abuse claim. Seek a Dallas lawyer’s help to get your loved one the safety and recovery they deserve.
When we place a loved one in a nursing home, it’s because we expect that they’ll receive the attention and care we can’t provide them. Acting as a caretaker is difficult, but we expect the nurses and assistants to take care of our loved ones on our behalf.
Unfortunately, they’re not always so kind. If you suspect that your loved one is being abused in their nursing home, you can contact Crain Brogdon, LLP. for help. A Dallas nursing home abuse lawyer may be needed to protect your loved one and help them recover.
If you’re concerned about your loved one being abused, it’s important to understand the types and signs of nursing home abuse. If you suspect that any of the following types of abuse are happening, your loved one may be entitled to compensation:
Fortunately, your loved one should receive compensation for the suffering they’ve been put through at the hands of the nursing home. They may be eligible to receive both economic and non-economic damages for their losses.
First, all financial losses they’ve suffered should be compensated. For example, they may need medical care for their injuries, and any funds taken by the nursing home staff should be returned to them. These damages can typically be added up from their bills and losses.
The mental and emotional trauma they’ve suffered is more difficult to put a price tag on. You may need a lawyer to provide the specific tools you’ll need to find these damages, which are intangible, making them more difficult to deal with. These damages should include any non-financial suffering they’ve experienced, like pain, emotional trauma, and any loss of enjoyment of life.
When your loved one is stuck in such a dangerous situation, it may leave you unsure how to respond. Maybe you don’t know for sure that they’re harming your loved one, and if they are, you’re not sure how to get them out of that situation.
Fortunately, a Dallas attorney can help. We’ll review your suspicions about the nursing home, and if it seems that your loved one is being abuse, we’ll act to stop them. This usually entails getting your loved one out of the nursing home and getting them to a safer place, where they’ll get the care they need.
If the facility is engaging in or sheltering nursing home abuse, contacting law enforcement officers is also important. Other elderly residents may be suffering from abuse because of the staff or even fellow residents, and they may need help, too. We can help you notify the police so they can begin their investigation.
When a loved one has suffered from nursing home abuse, they may need help recovering from their mistreatment. Unfortunately, it can be overwhelming and confusing to fight back on your own. As such, you’ll need to fight back with the help of a lawyer from Crain Brogdon, LLP..
