We rely on nursing homes to care for family members who are no longer able to care for themselves in their homes. Unfortunately, nursing homes don't always provide the care we pay for. Neglect is a leading cause of injury and death for seniors living in nursing homes.
At Perrotta & Cahn, Attorneys at Law, our lawyers can help your loved one recover compensation for injuries sustained as the result of neglect or abuse in a nursing home. With offices in Cartersville, Calhoun and Dalton, we represent seniors and their families in north Georgia and throughout the South.
The following are examples of the types of nursing home injury cases we handle:
- Injuries from falls: Falls often happen because a resident did not receive the assistance he or she needed. These falls can have devastating consequences.
- Dehydration or malnutrition: There are few reasons other than neglect that can explain why a senior did not receive the nutrition or hydration he or she needed to maintain health.
- Prescription drug errors: Prescription drug errors or deliberate overmedicating can rob seniors of their health and vitality.
- Bedsores: When an immobile resident is not repositioned periodically by nursing home staff, pressure ulcers or bedsores are the result.
- Sexual abuse: It's hard to imagine a facility that would allow staff members to sexually abuse residents. Unfortunately it happens.
- Financial abuse: Are you seeing unexplained withdrawals on your loved one's bank account or charges on their credit cards?
