Elder abuse is any type of intentional harm or negligence against an elderly individual.

- Physical abuse (hitting, bruising, restraining, etc.)
- Sexual abuse
- Failure to provide food, hygienic services, or the appropriate health care required for the individual
- Exploitation such as taking, or misusing money, jewelry, or other valuable assets from the individual for another person’s benefit
- Emotional abuse such as humiliating, intimidating, or threatening the elderly person
- Self-neglect – characterized as the failure of a person to perform essential, self-care tasks and that such failure threatens his/her own health or safety
Our firm has handled a variety of nursing home cases including the one of an elderly gentleman that went to live in a nursing home due to his deteriorating health. During his stay at the nursing home, our client fell off his bed onto the floor. He attempted to get up, but was crawling on the floor for more than 15 minutes until someone came to help him. Due to the fall, the gentleman suffered a fractured hip. After investigating the incident, it was determined that the fall could have been avoided if both of the side rails of the bed were up. Additionally, the jury found the nursing home responsible for nursing home negligence, and violations of nursing home rights.
