Waverly Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

Protect You and Your Loved Ones

No one expects their family member or loved one to be abused while residing in a nursing home facility. But, often, we see cases of elderly people treated poorly through malpractice, neglect, and abuse while under the care of a nursing home facility.

A recent congressional report showed that a study from nursing home abuse records conducted over a 3-year timespan, showed nearly 1 in 3 nursing home homes were cited for violations that caused injury or harm. In the state of Kentucky alone, 4,853 violations were found, 483 of which were considered fatal or serious. Unfortunately, not all nursing homes are properly staffed and equipped to provide the necessary care for their patients. In most situations, actions like this are unacceptable and must not be taken lightly. At Burnside Brankamp Law, we are dedicated to achieving justice for victims of nursing home abuse through aggressive and compassionate representation.

Warning Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Being proactive and recognizing signs early on can help protect you and your family against possible threats of elderly abuse. Most patients residing in nursing homes are unable to communicate effectively if they are experiencing signs of pain or suffering. These types of abuse can come in many forms and it’s important to recognize the key warning signs during your visits.

The most common signs of abuse or neglect in nursing homes include:

  • Medication errors
  • Poor Hygiene
  • Sudden decrease in finances
  • Tense or strained relationship between caregiver and patient
  • Bruises, burns, broken bones, cuts, and pressure marks
  • Severe Bedsores
  • Dehydration or malnutrition
  • Sexual Assault
  • Sudden change in mood or unusual depression

Legal Options for Elder Abuse Victims

Nursing home abuse laws exist to protect the health and well-being of residents. Under Kentucky law, nursing homes are legally required to provide their patients a safe, caring, and accident-free environment. When this doesn’t happen, it raises a multitude of threats that can potentially lead to personal and fatal injuries. In these cases, we can file a personal injury lawsuit or a wrongful death claim to seek compensation for your expenses.

If the claim is successful, we may recover damages to compensate:

  • Medical expenses
  • Non-economic damages such as pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses
  • Punitive damages

  • I would definitely hire Jared again in the future. Thank you Mr. Brankamp.

    Mr. Brankamp turned a very scary, unknown legal matter into a situation we could calmly navigate through. He was polite but frank, fact finding yet empathetic. He really made us feel like he had our daughter's best interest. Even during a pandemic when we could not meet face to face, he was easy to communicate with and always kept us in the loop on what was happening. I would definitely hire Jared again in the future. Thank you Mr. Brankamp.
