Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers in Worcester County
Massachusetts Personal Injury Attorneys
Entrusting your loved ones to a nursing home is a difficult decision. You expect a clean and safe environment, round-the-clock medical care, and considerate attention to your family member. At Murphy & Rudolf, LLP LLP, we provide compassionate legal services for clients in nursing home abuse cases.
Nursing home neglect and abuse can include:
- Failure to employ fall prevention guidelines
- Physical or sexual assault
- Failure to properly monitor an infection
- Failure to implement proper nutrition guidelines
- Verbal abuse
- Overuse of physical restraints
- Failure to rotate a bed-bound patient
- Over medication
- Failure to supervise a disoriented patient
Cases of abuse or neglect are not always easy to detect. Some cases involve obvious signs, such as bedsores, broken bones, or other physical injuries. Some elderly or sick victims may not even be aware of their abuse or neglect. There are, however, other less obvious signs of abuse or neglect. If your loved one experiences significant weight gain or loss, sudden or unexplained illnesses, depression, or any other significant emotional change, they may be suffering from abuse or neglect.
The elderly and the infirm have a legal right to a higher level of care than normally provided. While most families find their expectations of nursing homes met, there are unfortunately occasions of serious abuse and neglect. If you or your loved one has suffered from negligence or abuse while in the care of a nursing home, the Worcester personal injury attorneys of Murphy & Rudolf, LLP can provide diligent representation and legal assistance.
Preliminary work for nursing home abuse cases entails a substantial review of administrative and medical records, as well as records from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. It also requires aggressive litigation to ensure that all relevant pieces of discovery are gathered. At Murphy & Rudolf, LLP, our Worcester personal injury lawyers can do their best to represent your case and seek compensation in trial or through negotiation.
