Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse

"We Take Cases Because It's The Right Thing To Do"

"We take cases because it's the right thing to do," was the response of James Hayes, the founder of the law firm of Hayes Lorenzen Lawyers, PLC, when he was asked about personal injury cases involving nursing home neglect and abuse.

Nursing homes are charged with the special duty of caring for elderly, vulnerable, or incapacitated residents. In some instances, they fail to fulfill that duty. In cases involving nursing home neglect and abuse, the harm that comes to these vulnerable victims is not always intentional, but it is always inexcusable.

Nursing home negligence often arises when there is inadequate staffing of the facility. It can often be seen in some of the following examples:

  • Bed Sores
  • Decubitus Ulcers
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Falls in Nursing Homes
  • Broken Bones
  • Bruises
  • Infections
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Misappropriation of Funds
  • Poor Hygiene
  • Excessive Use of Restraints
  • Withholding Medications or Medical Care
  • Lack of Monitoring of Confused Residents
