COLUMBUS, OHIO NURSING HOME ABUSE & ELDER ABUSE LAWYERS
Nursing home neglect and elder abuse includes (but not limited to): negligent care, financial exploitation, and physical abuse. The signs of elder abuse are often difficult to identify as the senior being abused typically often won’t report that they are being abused. Every year an estimated 2.1 million older Americans are victims of physical, psychological, or other forms of abuse and neglect. For every case of elder abuse and neglect reported to authorities, experts estimate that there may be as many as five cases not being reported.
If a relative or close friend has suffered unexplained injuries, bed sores, a broken hip or frequent falls, and you are suspicious of elder abuse or nursing home negligence, there are legal options available. If the elder abuse led to mental incapacitation or death, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit and sue for damages.
