Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer Serving Cherokee County and Surrounding Areas

As we get older, we trust that we can enter nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to help us live out our golden years in comfort and peace. While some elder care facilities provide excellent care to seniors, many nursing home residents become the victims of abuse or neglect due to the intentional, reckless, and negligent acts of care facilities and staff.

As many as 5 million elders suffer some form of abuse or neglect each year, according to the National Council on Aging. As many as 1 in 10 people over the age of 60 have suffered some incident of abuse or neglect. However, estimates show that only 1 in 14 incidents of senior abuse or neglect are formally reported.

When you have an elder loved one who has been abused or neglected by the people you trusted to care for them, your family deserves to seek compensation and justice from those responsible for the abuse and neglect.
