Nursing Home Negligence 

Get a Free Consultation!

Unfortunately, nursing home negligence and elder abuse occurs more frequently than one would think.

It is a disturbing and tragic fact that should not be ignored in any capacity.

Senior citizens are society’s most vulnerable group of people.

They are at their most isolated when their living situations become dangerous, and it becomes clear that they cannot live on their own or defend themselves.

Should complications arise, however, we may need to turn the care of our loved ones over to assisted living, nursing homes, or long-term care facilities.

We expect these nursing home facilities to provide quality, dedicated, thoughtful, and compassionate care to our loved ones.

That is the sole reason we have elected to place them in their care.

That is why it is so particularly heinous when that trust is violated.

It doesn't only affect oneself, but the quality of life of one they love. 

As unfortunate as it sounds, Nursing Home Abuse does occur and can take many different forms, such as:

  • Emotional Abuse
  • Physical Abuse
  • Financial Abuse

If you know someone suffering from abuse, it is imperative that you act as quickly as possible.

The sooner help arrives, the sooner the abusive behavior can end.

If you find this situation applies to you, contact our law firm at one of our Georgia locations in Savannah, Atlanta, and Athens or at our South Carolina location in Okatie.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does a Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuit Take?

Each nursing home abuse lawsuit is unique, which makes this a difficult question to answer.

It can take anywhere from a few months to several years for your case to conclude.

However, the only guaranteed way to ensure that justice for your loved one is never reached is by failing to take it to a legal professional.

If your loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse, do not wait another moment. Schedule a free consultation with The Brown Firm today!

What Kind of Lawyer Handles Elder Abuse Cases?

Technically, elder neglect or nursing home abuse falls under the category of personal injury law.

However, personal injury law is a fairly big umbrella that covers a wide variety of topics.

By simply hiring a “personal injury lawyer,” you may be taking on someone who specializes in motorcycle accidents.

It is essential to find a law group, such as The Brown Firm, that has legal experience dealing with nursing home abuse or elder neglect.

Which Form of Elder Abuse is Most Common?

Regrettably, one of the most common forms of elder abuse is also one of the hardest to prove.

Emotional or psychological abuse is one of the most prevalent forms of elderly abuse that occurs.

Emotional abuse can take various forms, such as making threats, embarrassing them, intimidating them, or forcing them into isolation.

Regrettably, emotional and psychological abuse often goes unreported, but that does not mean those suffering from it do not deserve justice!

Skilled attorneys, like those at The Brown Firm, know how to handle this painful situation and how to fight for the justice you and your loved ones deserve.

What does Passive Neglect Mean?

Passive neglect is much more insidious than other forms of abuse or negligence. It occurs when someone responsible does not fulfill their duties.

One of the key differences is that “passive neglect” can be perpetrated non-maliciously.

It could occur due to an oversight or scheduling error.

However, that does not make it any less debilitating, harmful, or potentially deadly.

Passive neglect can occur when a nursing home employee fails to feed, clean, medicate, or perform any necessary tasks for an elderly person in their care.

If your loved one has been neglected either purposefully or not, contact a skilled lawyer at The Brown Firm today!

How Can You Prove Nursing Home Abuse?

Like any other personal injury lawsuit, it is critical to gather evidence that shows that abuse has taken place.

Even when it is difficult to see that abuse has taken place, if it has, there is still evidence to be collected.

If there is any physical evidence, it is necessary to collect or record it. Take pictures of anything relevant to the condition of your loved one.

You can also gather official records from the nursing home, such as complaint reports, witness statements, or even medical records.

Basically, you need to gather anything that you can think of that shows that abuse has occurred.

Once that has been done, you need to give it to your attorney.

They have the experience and knowledge on how to best use your collected evidence to bring out as favorable of an outcome as possible for your loved one,

How Can I Tell If My Loved One is Suffering from Nursing Home Abuse?

One of the problems with nursing home abuse is that several forms do not show on a physical level. 


Sometimes, the only way to tell if your loved one is being abused emotionally or financially is to listen to them if they tell you.
Any threat of elderly abuse should be taken seriously and investigated.

However, what if they never tell you?


This lack of explanation would not be too surprising considering how many nursing home abuse cases go unreported every year.


In this situation, you need to stay vigilant for any signs of abuse.


It could be anything from a change in attitude, a change in personal habits, unexplained bruises, or even a difference in a financial situation.


If you suspect that your loved one is being mistreated, do not wait.
