St. Augustine Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Was your loved one abused or neglected in a nursing home?
There is a rising number of cases of abuse or neglect in nursing homes
in the St. Augustine and Jacksonville areas, as well as throughout the
country. Many of these facilities fail to adequately train their staff,
or hire those who may be less than qualified or who prey on frail elderly
people who cannot protect themselves. At our firm, the Albaugh Law Firm,
we take on these cases committed to getting results, and we encourage
you to get in touch with us at once if you suspect abuse. The danger of
serious illness or death is very high when an elderly person is not cared
for correctly, and as promised by the nursing home.
Contact us at once if your loved one has been abused or neglected.
The Signs of Elder Abuse in a Nursing Home
There are signs of abuse that you must watch for if your loved one has
been placed in a nursing home. If you visit and find your loved one suffering
from bedsores, with unsatisfactory hygiene, or with bruises or other signs
of abuse, it is critical that you contact us at once. These are signs
of abuse or neglect. A family member who is always sleeping and appears
groggy and uncommunicative may be over medicated, a serious danger for
an elderly person in frail health. If your loved one wandered off and
was unsupervised, the nursing home can be held accountable. If you suspect
abuse it is time to act. We will carefully evaluate the situation and
advise you about how to move forward with a claim or lawsuit. We are committed,
professional, and we care. You can expect the highest quality service
when you work with us, as each of our legal team genuinely cares and wants
to help you hold the nursing home accountable for what they have done.
