Fort Myers Elder Abuse Attorney

In cases where a resident of a nursing home can communicate the problems to those in charge, there is less likelihood of situations of abuse. Those who cannot verbalize abuse or who have cognitive disorders are more vulnerable to abuse and neglect. If you have suspicions that your loved one is being abused, you may be able to document the abuse by noticing some of the following signs:

  • Bruising, especially wrists and other areas where restraints might have been used;
  • Sudden weight loss;
  • Poor hygiene, odor, wearing soiled clothing;
  • Indications that medication is being incorrectly administered, or not being administered as prescribed;
  • Emotional withdrawal and depression;
  • Misplaced/missing jewelry, clothing, personal effects.

These cases are particularly tragic, as the victim may be unable to communicate, either due to fear or some form of dementia. We have almost two decades of experience helping victims of abuse and negligence. Contact us if you suspect your loved one has suffered injuries and other damages due to abuse or neglect. Our loved ones deserve care, respect and high quality medical and nursing care. Legal action can be initiated to hold the negligent parties accountable. Call now.
