Victim of Nursing Home Abuse?

Getting help is easy! We are here to help you and your loved ones with your nursing home abuse lawsuit.

Talk With A Lawyer

Nursing home abuse is on the rise in America. Quite often, due to nursing staff not being properly educated or trained, these employees have been known to not only emotionally abuse the very people they are employed to care for – but to steal money and possessions from their victims, along with inflicting serious harm on their helpless, elderly residents.

While all of these matters should be reported to local authorities – unfortunately serious falls and the overall neglect of nursing home residents often goes unreported to the proper authorities.

Here at Lewis & Keller, the safety of nursing home residents is very important to all of us – we have the experience and resources to help you fight for the safety of elderly family and friends in North Carolina nursing homes.

If your loved one has suffered serious harm from nursing home abuse, we can help to evaluate and assess your legal options for a compensation lawsuit.

Simply fill out the “Free Case Review” form below to get started.

Signs That You Need A Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Nursing home abuse can take several forms, which can be separated into four main categories:

  • neglect
  • physical abuse
  • sexual assault
  • psychological trauma

If you are unsure if your elderly loved one is suffering from nursing home abuse, there are some common, tell-tale signs that can help you find out:

  • Torn, stained or dirty clothing
  • Burns
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Strange behavior, such as rocking, biting and sucking
  • Dehydration
  • Bruises, cuts and lesions
  • Bedsores
  • Withdrawal
  • Malnutrition
  • Uneasiness when certain nursing home staff are present

If your loved one exhibits any of these signs, do not hesitate to contact a member of our North Carolina nursing home abuse lawyer division here at Lewis & Keller.

Our nursing home negligence lawyers will work hard to get your loved one the compensation they deserve and more importantly, to put an end to the abuse they have endured.
