It is very distressing to discover that your beloved mother, father, wife, husband or other family member is suffering from neglect and abuse in a nursing home. If you suspect that your loved one is experiencing abuse in a long-term care facility, you are doing the right thing by looking for an experienced nursing home negligence attorney. Contact Lamkin, Van Eman, Trimble & Dougherty, LLC, in Columbus, to discuss your suspicions (or certainty).
Did any of the following signs lead you to look on the Internet for an attorney to give you advice? We are prepared to evaluate your case and recommend next steps:
- Red marks on arms or other parts of the body
- Skin breakdown in general
- Evidence of poor hygiene
- Evidence of dehydration
- Evidence of malnutrition (weight loss, perhaps)
Perhaps your family member has complained of psychological abuse. Perhaps you learned that your loved one had fallen or wandered off, or was discovered lying in bodily waste with signs of not having been cleaned up in some time. Perhaps another resident or a family member of another resident tipped you off. Perhaps a doctor or nurse suspects something is not right in the nursing home or assisted living home. Your loved one may have died without a good explanation.
Whatever possible signs of abuse you are following up on, a nursing home neglect lawyer can give you a roadmap for correcting the wrongdoing. Compensation for the injured person and/or family is one aspect of a successful nursing home abuse and neglect claim. Required corrective measures at the long-term care facilities may be another.
