The Symptoms of Nursing Abuse or Neglect

Our Erie nursing injury lawyers suggest that you always seek legal advice the moment you feel that something is not right regarding your loved ones’ care. We will be more than willing to help you determine whether you are right to be concerned and if you should launch an investigation. Some of the more telling symptoms of mistreatment include the following and should never be ignored.

  • Development of bedsores or worsening of existing sores. Due to the ease with which these injuries can be prevented, they are normally the product of neglect and should be considered unacceptable.
  • Your loved one shows psychological symptoms of abuse such as withdrawing from activities he or she once enjoyed, acting out in anger or experiencing bouts of depression and acting fearful in the presence of caregivers.
  • You notice physical symptoms such as bruises on the wrists, ankles or genitals. These are symptoms of physical or sexual assault and action must be taken immediately to remove your loved one from the environment.
  • Your loved one is hospitalized due to a medication error or an accident that occurred while unsupervised.

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
