Nursing Home Neglect Attorney
In our country, people are living longer than ever before. Many of our elderly loved ones are in nursing homes, often many miles from where we live. The elderly are often weak and confused and unable to speak up for themselves. Nursing home abuse can lead to increased physical problems, from bedsores to over-medication, physical abuse from staff or other patients, neglect, inadequate nutrition, sexual molestation and even death. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse and neglect affects thousands of people throughout the United States each year.
Signs of nursing home neglect can be hard to recognize, and staff members oftentimes go to great efforts to conceal evidence of abuse. Nursing home abuse can also involve fraud, theft and other financial issues. Attorneys at Rad Law Firm have the experience and knowledge necessary to investigate and review potential nursing home neglect lawsuits for injuries suffered as a result of inadequate care provided in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or long-term care facilities. When an elderly parent or loved one requires nursing home care, you are under the impression they will be treated with the best medical care, dignity, and respect. When this does not happen and your loved one is injured or worse, you may have grounds to hold nursing homes and their staff accountable for their actions.
Common Injuries From Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect
Nursing home abuse attorneys at Rad Law Firm are committed to pursuing claims that arise out of nursing home neglect and will do everything in our power to ensure those responsible are held accountable. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse comes in many different shapes and forms, from physical abuse or neglect to emotional and sexual abuse. As a result of neglect or abuse in a nursing home, a wide range of painful, devastating, and life-threatening injuries can be suffered. Some of the most common injuries include the following:
- Bed sores
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Abuse and assault
- Restraint injuries
- Falls and fractures
- Wandering and leaving the facility
- Wrongful death
- Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose

Nursing home and assisted living facilities are required to provide their residents with an accident-free, caring, and safe environment.
