Nursing Home Abuse Your Injury, Our Fight

Laredo, TX Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

The elderly are a vulnerable population who oftentimes reach a point where they can no longer care for themselves in their own home. Once they realize this, they might ask a loved one to help, or they might hire in-home care, but many times that can only be sustained for so long. Then they make the tough decision with family members that they will enter into a long-term care home. That way, they can get the constant care they need while still maintaining their dignity and independence.

Unfortunately, though, they’re not always treated with the care that they need or deserve while they’re in their home. That’s where our Laredo, TX nursing home abuse lawyer comes in. At Buckingham & Vega Law Firm, our attorneys will stand up for the rights of your older family member who is a resident at a care facility. They deserve justice for the mistreatment they experienced, and we’ll fight to get them full and fair compensation for their injuries and damages.

Signs Your Loved One Experienced Abuse in Their Nursing Facility

Once you admit your elderly loved one into a nursing home, that doesn’t mean they’ve given up all their rights. It also doesn’t mean that you should stop monitoring how they’re treated. No matter how much research you do into a long-term care facility, you could still not recognize the signs of abuse within them. Or there just might not be reports of the abuse or neglect, which leaves you thinking it’s the prefect home for your loved one.

Even after admitting your loved one and getting them settled in, it’s important to maintain vigilance over their care. They might not be able to tell you when they’re suffering from abuse, so you’ll need to look for the signs. Here are some of the most common signs of abuse that you might see to alert you that you might need the help of a nursing home abuse attorney:

  • Unexplained bruises, broken bones, and other injuries
  • Signs of physical or chemical restraints
  • Unexplained sudden weight loss
  • Poor personal hygiene and unkept room
  • Bed sores
  • Unusual changes in behavior
  • Under- or overmedication
  • Inability to be alone with your loved one
  • Change in finances
  • Missing valuables
  • Unexplained STDs

Unfortunately, there are many different types of abuse that you need to look out for when your loved one is a resident in a nursing home. No matter how safe you think their facility is, it could be rampant with abusive staff members or fellow residents. Your family member deserves your help in getting them the representation they need.
