The elderly is one of the most vulnerable populations in our nation. They don’t always voice when something is wrong, and they are not always in the best of hands when it comes to their care. As such, they are unfortunately victimized more often than they should in nursing homes.
Because the rights of the elderly matter, our team works hard to help represent those rights to compensation and to justice. In a nursing home abuse case, it is our ultimate goal to hold the responsible party accountable while getting our clients the results they need and deserve.
In terms of compensation that may be available to the elderly following nursing home abuse, the physical, emotional, and financial damages must be taken into consideration. Compensation can help cover the medical expenses associated with physical injuries, pain and suffering, and replace any funds lost due to financial exploitation.
In instances where the nursing home is malicious in their intent and intentionally causes harm, there may be punitive damages considered in this case. However, while punitive damages are awarded and can help the plaintiff, their purpose is to punish the defendant and prevent further instances of nursing home abuse.
We know that for many, it’s not just about the money they need to recover. For some, it’s about pursuing justice and knowing that the party responsible for the abuse is being forced to be accountable for their actions.
In many situations, pursuing justice means creating change. It means preventing others from experiencing the same injustices and abuse. That means a lot to many who have endured this, and to our firm who help the elderly through these difficult situations.
