Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers Augusta, Evans, Waynesboro, and Thomson
Nursing home neglect is when your family’s caretaker neglects to provide for their basic needs, like cleanliness, food, water, and safety. Often, the sights and sounds of nursing home neglect can go unnoticed, because providers can be on their “best behavior” when families visit, masking and covering up the neglect that happens in secret. Nursing home abuse, however, is often noticeable to visiting family. There are for main categories of abuse we see most often, but you should discuss each nuance of your case with us to see how we can help you best. Those categories are physical, emotional, economic, and sexual abuse.

It’s our worst nightmare when we suspect they’re being abused by the nursing home staff we’re paying and trusting to care for them. What do you do? How do you get justice and reclaim safety for your loved one?

Our population is aging and increasingly we’re dependent on institutional care to fill in the gaps where we fall short providing adequate care for our elders at our home or in theirs.

We’re committed to winning your case against the nursing home abuse that’s inflicted so much harm on your family.

Some of the common signs of abuse to look for include: bed sores, bruises, malnutrition, depression, infections, broken bones, mood swings, visitation refusals, cuts and scrapes.
