Delaware Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

If you suspect that your loved one is suffering from mistreatment at an assisted living facility, get in touch with a qualified Delaware nursing home abuse attorney.

Nursing home abuse is much more common than you might think. When your family member enters one of these facilities, you trust that the employees, supervisors, and administrators have your elderly relative’s best interests in mind. This is why it often comes as a shock to find out that your loved one is enduring abuse at the hands of those entrusted with his or her care.

The attorneys at Barros, McNamara, Malkiewicz & Taylor have the experience and resources you need to help your family advocate for your family member’s rights. A Delaware nursing home abuse lawyer will work with you to file a civil lawsuit against whoever is responsible for the abuse your loved one has been put through.

Ways Your Loved One Could Be Suffering

The elderly are at risk for various types of abuse when they live in a nursing home environment. Some of the most common kinds of abuse detailed in Delaware nursing home abuse claims include the following:

  • Physical abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Neglect

Signs that your family member might be suffering from nursing home abuse include unexplainable bruises, cuts, or burns, broken bones, bed sores, social withdrawal, anger or memory loss, dehydration, missing money, and odd changes to financial documents.

If you suspect that your elderly loved one is being abused, you should first make sure that he or she is safe and remove him or her from the facility where necessary. Then, contact an attorney and report your findings to law enforcement. Police may conduct an investigation and potentially bring forth criminal charges while we build your civil lawsuit.

Getting Compensation for Your Loved One’s Losses

Elderly nursing home residents should be spending their days relaxing without the burdens often associated with younger adult years. And after suffering abuse at the hands of their trusted caregivers, they should be compensated for the damage done.

We will make sure to go over every way your loved one’s life has been affected by the abuse to secure the most for your claim. A nursing home abuse lawyer in Delaware will examine the extent of the pain and suffering, loss of income (where applicable), medical expenses, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and a number of other damages to help ensure maximum compensation.

Your attorney will work closely with the physician treating your elderly loved one so that we include not only the current effects of the abuse, but the expected impact of the abuse your loved endured. Your relative is more than entitled to have those future damages financially accounted for.
