What To Do If There Are Signs Of Abuse

You need to act quickly when you see red flags for nursing home abuse situations because potential evidence might be destroyed. Additionally, things can be easily forgotten by elderly individuals, including by those who witnessed or committed the abuse. In many instances, the allegedly abusive employee or staff member may be transferred, fired or leave before their statement can be taken.

Our attorneys can issue subpoenas for employee disciplinary records, request information about the facility, and speak with residents and staff to investigate your family member’s injury. We can also obtain information by way of consent. If you execute a health care power of attorney, we can get all medical records and charting nurse notes of alleged incidents, which are essential in all nursing home cases. Our nursing home negligence lawyers can also serve as intermediaries between a loved one’s family and the insurance carriers and companies that are looking to protect their money and reputation.
