Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys in Jackson
Relentlessly Fighting on Behalf of Your Elderly Loved One
If you have an elderly loved one who is under nursing care, or living at a nursing home, chances are you also know of someone who has suffered an injury while under care. Nursing home injuries are so common that many people in the healthcare field consider these injuries an inevitability, rather than a preventable occurrence that can be avoided with proper precautions. This is an incredibly irresponsible viewpoint, as an injury sustained by an elderly person can result in that person never walking again.
At Williams Newman Williams, we fight aggressively on behalf of elderly patients who suffered abuse at the hands of nursing home caretakers, medical providers, and other employees. It is the responsibility of the nursing home facility to ensure their patients’ safety and health are always protected. When their patients suffer physical, psychological, emotional, sexual, or financial abuse, our attorneys take action to hold the responsible parties accountable. You can count on us to fight for the full and fair compensation you deserve.
It Is the Caregiver's Responsibility to Prevent Harm
Our attorneys are highly familiar with the nursing home industry, and we have decades of combined experience in representing the interests of injured clients. We know that many injuries at nursing homes are completely preventable and are the result of poor employee training, inadequate staffing, not doing proper background checks, cluttered environments, failure to implement safety devices like bed railings, and cutting corners in ways that put the elderly and vulnerable in danger. We can identify the signs of nursing home abuse and help you pursue the maximum compensation your loved one needs.
Common signs of nursing home abuse include:
- Unusual weight loss, poor hygiene, or bedsores, which may be signs of neglect
- Sudden changes in your loved one’s financial situation, which may be a sign of exploitation
- A sudden onset of depression, unusual change in mood, or withdrawing from normal activities
- Broken bones, pressure marks, unexplained bruises, difficulty walking, or other injuries
Likewise, if your loved one's injuries were caused by rough handling during transport, while being lifted from a bed, or as a result of physical or sexual abuse by a staff member, resident, or visitor, we can seek justice on your behalf.
Did Your Loved One Sustain Broken Bones?
Although bones may mend, the sad fact is that broken bones of elderly patients do not heal as well as the bones of the young. A pelvic fracture, broken femur, or fractured wrist may never fully heal. The trauma of bone fractures can also make patients vulnerable to infections and other ailments that can start a downward spiral of decreasing fitness, which can end in further disability or wrongful death.
