Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Legal representation for victims of nursing home abuse, neglect, and injury in: Prince Georges County, Charles County, Anne Arundel County, and the Maryland/DC/Metro area.
Each year millions of families are faced with the most difficult decision about placing a parent or grandparent in an assisted living facility or nursing home. As in nature, the older or weaker of the pack can often fall victim to predators. It is an unfortunate reality that many senior citizens not only endure physical abuse, but inadequate medical care and neglect, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and financial exploitation while in the care of these extended-care facilities.
Millions of seniors experience some form of elderly abuse, neglect, and injury annually. Studies suggest that elders who are well cared for live longer than those that have been abused, neglected, or injured. If you believe your loved one has fallen victim to nursing home abuse, negligence, or some form of injury while under the care of an assisted living facility or nursing home, please contact Potter Burnett Law.
