Elder abuse and nursing home neglect litigation is a focused sector of the law that requires specialized knowledge about injuries that commonly occur in Skilled Nursing Facilities. Our firm’s focus on almost exclusively handling elder abuse and neglect cases statewide provides our California nursing home abuse lawyers with extensive experience in navigating the many nuances of such cases and has resulted in significant outcomes for our clients. As elder abuse specialists, we know how to obtain the evidence needed to satisfy the high burden of proof required to prove neglect in a nursing home.

Claims Based on Injuries Sustained at Nursing Homes

Common signs of abuse include unexplained bruises, bed sores, frequent falls, dehydration, significant weight loss, emotional or social withdrawal, and recurrent infections.

Understaffing and improper training increase the likelihood of a resident not receiving the care they need. For example, a nursing home that is understaffed may neglect to help an elderly resident with personal hygiene or fail to provide proper medicine or food. It may fail to provide adequate nutrition.

It may fail to prevent a resident from wandering, falling, or engaging in other hazardous behaviors. In some cases, nursing homes have overmedicated residents whom they believe are unruly or causing “problems” for staff. This type of chemical restraint is unlawful and unacceptable, and our nursing home abuse lawyers can help California residents and their families hold a facility accountable for this misconduct.

Assisted Living Facilities and Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly

Assisted living abuse may include physical, psychological, or sexual abuse, and can also include neglect or financial exploitation. People who live in assisted living or residential care facilities typically require less intensive care than do residents of nursing homes. Many assisted living and residential care facilities contract the supervised care for certain chronic conditions or impairments. Still, these facilities pose many of the same risks for elder abuse and neglect presented by skilled nursing facilities. Older adults may suffer from medication errors, bed sores, falls, or assault by other residents if the supervised care is not provided.

Many times, assisted living facilities accept or retain residents who have higher levels of need than what the facility is able to provide, leading to inevitable neglect and otherwise avoidable injuries.

When retained for an assisted living facility case, our California nursing home abuse attorneys will look at all of the factors that contributed to the injury or death of an assisted living facility resident. These may include a lack of regulatory oversight, minimal training, understaffing, and repeated violations of the regulations governing quality of care at assisted living facilities.

I had a heartfelt and memorable experience with Ben , very genuine and I can tell he loves what he does. His determination shows beautifully and it is amazing. In my opinion it is very rare you find people who love what they're doing and it shows. Not wanting to get religious on an review but, God introduced me to Ben for a reason. Summer

Ben was wonderful. He took our case when no one else was interested or wanted way to much money. We would highly recommend Ben because he really listens and takes your situation into consideration. We settled our case and we were only unhappy with one thing and that was the confidentiality clause but that was not Ben's fault it came with the deal. June
