Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys in Portsmouth

Protecting the Rights of the Elderly

Elderly individuals aged 65 and older are some of the most vulnerable individuals in our society. To care for their specific needs and health conditions, many of us entrust the well-being of our elderly loved ones to nursing homes, which we expect to treat them with care and respect. Unfortunately, abuse and neglect in these facilities is a common phenomenon. Nursing Home Abuse Justice estimates that, in the United States, 5,000,000 elderly individuals suffer from abuse every year. Unfortunately, only 1 out of every 14 incidents are formally reported.

At Burnside Law, LLC in Portsmouth, our nursing home abuse attorneys will fight diligently on behalf of your elderly loved one to ensure the responsible parties are held liable for their terrible actions. You can rely on our experience, skill, and determination to secure the results your family deserves.

What is Nursing Home Abuse?

Nursing home abuse does not only encompass physical abuse. Elderly individuals are subject to numerous forms of abuse, including sexual abuse, financial abuse, emotional abuse, and neglect. Just because your elderly loved one does not have any broken bones or bruises does not mean he or she is not suffering. Additionally, neglect is often unintentional and caused by understaffed and overworked employees who simply cannot care for every resident. However, regardless of the cause of your loved one’s suffering, you have the right to pursue justice and obtain compensation.

Below are some of the signs of abuse and neglect you should be aware of:

  • Although it seems almost unthinkable, sexual abuse is common in nursing homes. Signs of this form of abuse include unexplained genital infections and STDs, torn or bloody underwear, and bruising around the breasts or genitals.
  • If understaffing is a problem in your loved one’s nursing home, he or she is likely being neglected. Signs include dirty bedding, poor hygiene, dehydration, bedsores, and generally poor living conditions.
  • In some cases, caregivers financial exploit the elderly individuals they are supposed to look after and care for. Signs of this include missing cash, changes in power of attorney, drastic changes in financial condition, unexplained bank account withdrawals, and lack of adequate medical care despite having the money for it.

If you recognize any of the aforementioned signs of abuse, act quickly by reaching out to our experienced nursing home abuse team.
