Nursing Home Abuse Attorney in North Georgia
Every year, thousands of elderly people in nursing homes and assisted living facilities suffer abuse and neglect at the hands of their caretakers. The most common type of nursing home negligence is physical abuse, sometimes referred to as elder abuse. Hitting, biting, punching, shoving, pushing, burning, cutting, battery, sexual assault, and molestation are all forms of physical abuse. But nursing home negligence is not just physical in nature.
Nursing home negligence can also refer to psychological abuse, financial abuse, and neglect. It’s not unusual for victims of neglect to suffer from bed sores, malnutrition, dehydration, infections, and more.
If you think your loved one is a victim of nursing home negligence or abuse, it’s important to seek legal counsel from an experienced attorney right away. Victims of nursing home abuse and neglect rarely speak up about their injuries and abuse out of fear the situation will get worse. By contacting a skilled North Georgia nursing home abuse lawyer as soon as you suspect your loved one is being mistreated, you can ensure someone with authority will begin investigating the situation to look for signs or evidence that abuse or neglect is occurring.
