Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys in Okemos

Unyielding Support for Neglected Elders

extensive research to find the right home and even more logistical work to finalize the move. When moving a loved one into a nursing home, you want to feel confident that the facility will serve his or her needs and treat him or her respectfully. Nursing home abuse is a truly horrible offense – and all instances of negligence must be properly addressed.

If your family member was neglected or abused while under the care of nursing home staff, you have the right to seek damages and pursue legal action against the facility. White Law PLLC is here to help you navigate that legal process. We are passionate about helping the innocent victims of abuse get the help they need and the compensation they deserve.

To request a consultation with our team, please call (517) 316-1195 or contact us online.

The Signs of Neglect

Sometimes, a senior may not properly communicate the abuse they are suffering – or they may not be able to due to disabilities or other incapacitations. If you have a loved one in a nursing home, it is important to stay vigilant and to be aware of the signs of potential neglect or abuse.

Warning signs may include:

  • Wounds or cuts
  • Unclean conditions in the facility or your loved one’s room
  • Frequent sickness
  • Significant weight loss
  • Unexplained injuries
  • Bed sores
  • Change in personality, attitude, or demeanor

If you have any reason to believe that abuse has occurred, it is important that you document your findings – take notes, take photographs, and seek medical attention for your loved one if necessary. Then, call our Okemos nursing home abuse attorneys.

Forms of Abuse & Neglect

Without much ability to seek recourse, far too many elders experience neglect and abuse at the hands of nursing home staff.

Examples of nursing home abuse:

  • Starvation/not providing enough food or water
  • Excessive restraints
  • Preventable falls
  • Bed sores
  • Physical abuse (hitting, kicking, etc.)
  • Sexual abuse
  • Letting residents wander out of the facility
  • Over-medication

These are just some of the many ways that nursing home staff can mistreat residents. If your loved one suffered any of these or some other form of abuse, our team is ready to investigate the incident and build a strong case on your behalf to hold the nursing home accountable.

To get started on your case, please give us a call at (517) 316-1195. We look forward to serving you and your family.
