Pursuing Justice For Victims Of Nursing Home Sexual Abuse
When you entrusted a loved one to the care of a nursing home, assisted living home or other long-term care facility, you rightfully expected that he or she would receive respectful care.
You certainly did not anticipate that your loved one would be sexually assaulted by a caregiver, fellow resident or visitor in the facility.
If this kind of attack has occurred, contact a lawyer right away — the sooner, the better.
A Legal Team That Will Do What It Takes To Uncover What Happened
Our attorneys at Lamkin, Van Eman, Trimble & Dougherty, LLC, are prepared to dig into the facts of the matter and develop a strategy for addressing concerns. Your family member may be able to recover significant monetary damages to cover medical treatment, psychological care and compensation for pain and suffering.
When our Columbus, Ohio, law firm investigates a nursing home sexual abuse case, we may find evidence of negligence on the part of the facility in addition to evidence of the perpetrator’s guilt. There may be a criminal case already underway against the accused.
If we represent your loved one and your family, we may also discover patterns of:
- Negligent hiring practices at the facility
- Negligent supervision of caregivers
- Failure to conduct or review background checks
- Failure to investigate prior complaints
A review of personnel records may indicate that other residents of the same facility had complained of inappropriate touching or other wrongful conduct. Your own family member may have complained — and supervisors may have dismissed those complaints.
