Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Nursing home abuse is far more common than most people realize. Every day in nursing homes throughout California, elderly people are abused and neglected by the very people who are supposed to be taking care of them. It is unacceptable that any elderly person should have to suffer abuse or neglect at the hands of a careless and negligent nursing home staff member, and here at Pacific Attorney Group we aggressively fight to hold these despicable people accountable for their actions.
Nursing homes should be safe places for senior citizens, places that can be trusted to provide superior care to its residents at all times, but unfortunately many nursing home workers take advantage of the elderly and ignore and abuse them. Some senior citizens have chronic illnesses or conditions that make them particularly susceptible to nursing home abuse because they don’t have the ability to speak up about the abuse that is taking place, and they may not really be able to understand what is happening to them. Even in these cases, it is unacceptable for nursing home attendants to act inappropriately, and our lawyers will take the proper legal actions against these parties.
