Nursing Home Abuse in Sherman Oaks
Nursing home abuse is an unfortunate fact of life in Sherman Oaks. An estimated one in three nursing homes commits some form of elder abuse. It is difficult for the average person to imagine anyone that would want to take advantage of the elderly. Unfortunately that is why, in many cases, it is overlooked. Maintaining awareness of possible nursing home abuse and neglect is extremely important if you have placed an elderly loved one in such a facility.

No one should be made to deal with physical, emotional or mental abuse no matter what their age. If you believe that your elderly loved one is the victim of any type of nursing home abuse, it is important to speak with a Sherman Oaks personal injury attorney from the Valley Attorney Group today.

Although many cases of elder abuse involve physical assault, there are many that involve a lack of proper care or neglect. Neglect can take many forms including medical negligence. When an elderly individual is placed in a home, the family trusts that the staff will provide quality medical care. In some cases, this trust is severely violated and in worst case scenarios, the victim of abuse is given no medical care, no help, or even physically or mentally assaulted. In such a case, the family can take legal action against the facility and its owners, as well as other possible liable parties. If you suspect any form of abuse is present, do not delay, call our firm immediately.
