Standing Up For Injured And Abused Elders
It is troubling to find out that a loved one has been subjected to negligence and abuse in a nursing home. We trust these institutions to care for and protect our loved ones, not to expose them to harm.
Remember, you have legal remedies at your disposal. By filing a claim against the nursing home, you can not only help your loved one, but also hold the negligent parties accountable and protect others from suffering in the future.
I am Brian Burchett, a passionate advocate for mistreated and abused elders in San Diego and throughout Southern California. As an experienced personal injury attorney, I can help you find the answers you are looking for and provide you with the strong representation you need to prevail in this legal matter.
Nursing Home Injuries
Nursing home negligence is often the result of understaffing and inadequate training. With fewer qualified staff members on hand, it is impossible to provide adequate care.
Negligence can result in:
- Bedsores (pressure sores, decubitus ulcers)
- Undiagnosed diseases and medical conditions
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Medication errors
- Restraint injuries
In some cases, injuries are not caused by negligence, but rather willful abuse. Nursing home abuse can come in many forms, including physical, emotional and financial abuse.
