Protecting Colorado Clients’ Rights In Nursing Home Abuse Claims
Abuse and neglect at the hands of nursing home staff is far too common. If you believe that someone you love is suffering abuse or has suffered it in the past, you should speak with one of our elder abuse attorneys at Reddick Law.
With decades of combined experience, our legal team helps clients in Denver and throughout the United States with a variety of claims related to nursing home abuse, neglect and exploitation. Our lawyers have recovered more than $1 billion in damages for our clients in cases involving nursing homes, assisted living complexes, hospitals, memory care facilities and other advanced care facilities.
What Are The Signs Of Nursing Home Abuse?
The loved ones of someone who is being abused often miss the signs, as many elderly residents have diminished intellectual capacity or have difficulty communicating. Try to remain on the lookout for some of the common symptoms of elder abuse, including:
- Unexplained bruises or cuts
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Unsanitary living conditions
- Depression or anxiety
- Fear around certain staff members
- Mysterious withdrawals or transfers from bank accounts
- Sudden changes to a will or trust/s
If you notice one or more of these conditions, document them as best you can by taking photographs and keeping a journal. Then, it is time to consult an experienced attorney who handles personal injury claims related to abuse and neglect.
What If Your Loved One’s Death Is Suspicious?
Tragically, the abuse of a senior citizen can result in their untimely death. If your loved one’s death came unexpectedly and does not seem connected to their medical history, let us help you investigate whether you have an actionable wrongful death case. Proving the wrongful death of an elderly person is not easy, as many residents of nursing homes are already in fragile health or receiving hospice services. We are committed to investigating your claim thoroughly, from gathering extensive medical records to working with outside experts such as gerontologists and elder rights advocates.
