Nursing home facilities are intended to provide safe and reliable care to elderly residents, but, sadly, this is not always the case. Elder abuse has become a growing concern across America, with the National Council on Aging reporting that “up to five million older Americans are abused every year.” Unfortunately, many incidents of abuse and neglect are unreported.

Negligent nursing home facilities and abusive caretakers must be held liable for their actions.

Finding out that your loved one has been experiencing neglect at the hands of their caregivers is often shocking and always frightening. Many elderly residents are unable to inform their families and local or state authorities that they are experiencing abuse. For this reason, it is often during family visits to their loved one’s care facility that someone will notice signs of mistreatment. We know that seeing these signs, whether they are physical, emotional, or financial, can rightly fill you with anger and a sense of injustice over the treatment they’ve endured.

If you believe your elderly loved one is suffering abuse at their long-term care facility, contact us immediately. We are passionate about protecting the legal rights of our elderly neighbors because no one deserves to suffer any form of abuse or neglect. Jim Glaser can review your loved one’s case and inform you of their legal options before pursuing compensation on their behalf. They deserve justice for what they’ve been through, so submit your case today and let us get to work for you and your family.

I was a little nervous meeting with a lawyer, but he instantly put me at ease with his friendly manner and legal knowledge.

Do You Have a Case?

Generally speaking, if you have an elderly family member who was mistreated in some way by their nursing home caretaker, they are likely entitled to financial compensation in a nursing home abuse lawsuit. While a no-cost consultation is the best way to find out what steps to take next, the information below can help you get a basic understanding of whether you have a case or not.

Waiting to report any type of abuse can drastically affect your loved one’s overall health. In order to identify the different forms of abuse, it’s necessary to know what to look for in regard to your loved one’s physical health, mental state, and overall environment. 

  • Physical Abuse is the easiest form of abuse to prove because the signs are visible and can include broken bones, cuts, bruises, bed sores, and more.
  • Emotional Abuse, on the other hand, can be much more challenging to prove. Nursing home staff may verbally abuse residents with threats and insults, which can intimidate an elderly person and prevent them from warning you they’re being abused.
  • Sexual Abuse happens when a resident is forced into unwanted sexual conduct.
  • Financial Exploitation tends to occur when a care provider handles financial matters for their patient. This can include late payments, cashing checks without notifying the resident, and coercing them into signing documents to gain access to accounts.
  • Neglect happens when caretakers fail to provide the level of care needed. Common examples include failing to help with personal hygiene and distributing the wrong food to residents based on their health needs.

The statute of limitations is a law that dictates the amount of time injured claim holders have to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. Every state has a different timeline, so it’s important to be aware of the law in your state.

In Massachusetts, this allows victims and their families three years from the date of injury to file a nursing home abuse lawsuit.

If you fail to file in time, you will significantly decrease your chances of receiving compensation. To avoid missing any deadlines, it’s best to consult Jim Glaser Law as soon as you suspect that your loved one is suffering abuse at their nursing home facility.

Recoverable Damages in a Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuit

If your elderly loved one suffered any form of abuse or neglect, compensation may be available for damages. While compensation cannot undo the abuse your loved one suffered, it can help cover expenses that occurred as a result of their care facility’s negligent actions. In these cases, two main types of compensation may be awarded:

Medical Expenses

In some cases, the severity of the abuse requires extensive medical treatment. This can include additional prescription medications and expensive surgeries or occupational therapy. Compensation can help cover any medical costs related to the incident.

Non-Economic Damages

If an abusive nursing home staff member caused injuries that damaged your loved one’s quality of life and psychological state, compensation may also be available for the pain and suffering they were forced to endure.

In order to effectively determine a reasonable amount of compensation, an attorney from Jim Glaser Law will need to review the circumstances of your elderly loved one’s case. Keep in mind that every case is unique and results will vary, but we always work to help our clients recover the most for their losses.

Nursing Home Abuse FAQs

Residents of nursing home facilities deserve to be respected and treated with care. Our firm has provided these tips for you to consider if you believe your elderly loved one is suffering any form of abuse:

  • Remain calm. It’s easy to allow your emotions to supersede good decision-making, and your anger is justified. However, it’s important to act reasonably and strategically so the situation can be handled correctly.
  • Communicate with the nursing staff. In some cases, you may mistakenly perceive something as a sign of abuse when there is a reasonable explanation. It’s always best to initially express any concerns you have to the manager of your loved one’s facility.
  • Speak with your loved one about the quality of their care privately. If for any reason, a staff member tries to dissuade you from discussing this alone with them, you should take action. This may be a potential coverup of abuse and neglect.
  • Contact the police. If there are clear signs of abuse, the authorities can intervene and prevent the facility from doing further harm.
  • Report abuse and neglect. Every state has protection services for older adults. If you’re unsure who to contact, call the National Center on Elder Abuse at 1-800-677-1116 for assistance.
  • Contact Jim Glaser Law. Compensation may be available for the abuse and neglect your loved one experienced. Seeking compensation on behalf of your elderly loved one is often difficult without an experienced Boston nursing home abuse attorney.

While you’re not required by law to hire an attorney for a lawsuit, having a Boston nursing home abuse attorney on your side will greatly increase your chance of receiving the full compensation you’re entitled to by law. Often, businesses that own care facilities try to protect themselves by covering up or denying claims of abuse.

You deserve only the best representation available, and Jimmy Knows™ what it takes to defend your loved one’s rights. We will take on the fight for justice so that you and your family can recover from this incident together without the added stress.

Every individual should have access to compassionate, competent legal services without worrying about whether they can afford them. That’s why we offer our initial case evaluations at no charge, and we never charge any fees unless we win compensation for you! That means there’s no risk, no upfront fees, and we don’t get paid unless you do.

Though this list is not exhaustive, it can provide you with an idea of what to look for when checking for signs of abuse:

  • Bedsores
  • Depression
  • Unusual bruises
  • Malnutrition
  • Emotional withdrawal
  • Unpaid bills 
  • Unexplained banking activity
  • Changes in behavior
  • Infected wounds
