Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse

A lot of us have or will eventually place a loved one in a nursing home.  Despite extensive research into background and staff of the nursing home, abuse or negligence can still happen. Moreover, all too often, any mistreatment or negligence is hard to uncover. In many instances of injury or death in a nursing home, the explanation may include ‘there wasn’t anything that could be done’ or ‘the person was very sick and would have died anyway.’  That type of response is never acceptable.  If your family member dies suddenly or unexpectedly in a nursing home, call a personal injury attorney immediately.  The attorneys at Ziccarelli & Martello will help you look beyond the nursing home’s explanation and make sure your loved one received the appropriate care and attention and was not neglected.

Nursing home abuse can include physical abuse, verbal abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and financial abuse. Some of the more common signs of abuse or neglect include the following:

  • Unexplained injuries
  • Open wounds, cuts, bruises, welts or burns
  • Dehydration
  • Signs of physical or chemical restraints
  • Bed sores
  • Withdrawal or isolation
  • Loss of weight
  • Frequent infections
  • Frequent falls
  • Persistent bad odor
  • Missing funds or unexplained financial transactions

At Ziccarelli & Martello, we want to help you protect your loved ones and put a stop to nursing home neglect and abuse. If you believe that a loved one has been neglected or abused, don’t wait – seek help as soon as possible. The investigation and preparation of a nursing home case is often time-consuming and in Ohio, the statute of limitations may be only one year. Please do not hesitate to contact us for a free discussion about the rights of your loved one.

Most personal injury lawyers charge exactly the same contingent fee that we do, but it takes a lawyer with experience, skill, tenacity and resources to take on major corporations, go the distance and maximize the injury victim’s recovery so that justice is done. The lawyers at Ziccarelli & Martello are not afraid to go to trial on your behalf.
