Nursing Home Abuse Injury Lawyer
For many families, placing a family member in a nursing home is an agonizing decision. Thus, when they discover that their loved one has experienced physical abuse, harm or injury at the hands of a trusted caregiver, they feel betrayed and devastated. Tragically, the National Center on Elder Abuse reports that between 1-2 million adults over the age of 65 have been abused or neglected in some way, while they believe that many other cases remain unreported. In light of these and other statistics, the Taylor Anderson Law Firm strongly supports victims and their families that have been affected by nursing home abuse and exploitation.
When a caretaker, institution or person intentionally harms a vulnerable individual such as an elderly person, this is classified as caretaker abuse and nursing home neglect. This also includes putting the person at risk for serious injury or harm, and this type of behavior manifests in a number of ways. Consider the following types of abuse and neglect:
- Financial Exploitation
- Physical Abuse
- Failure to meet the basic needs of the vulnerable party
- Failure to protect the vulnerable party from unnecessary harm
If your family is suffering because a loved one has been the victim of abuse or caretaker neglect in Charleston, West Ashley or James Island, The Taylor Anderson Law Firm will fight to help you obtain justice for your family.
