Telltale Signs of Neglect or Abuse

Our Worcester nursing home injury lawyers are happy to help you investigate any suspicion of nursing home negligence. We always tell our clients to search for definitive evidence or changes that may indicate poor care or abuse. These can include sudden changes in weight, the development of infections or bedsores, a sudden change in behavior, bouts of anger or depression and the presence of marks, bruises or other physical symptoms of abuse. Most of our clients know something is wrong simply by the fact that their loved ones go through a sudden change in personality or health without any valid explanation.

Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC has helped people across the entire country pursue justice when nursing homes acted in negligent or abusive ways toward their patients. If you feel that your loved one is a victim, you may be entitled to recover compensation for the treatment of any injuries, the pain and suffering your loved one has experienced and the cost of relocation to a more appropriate home.
