Types of Physical Abuse in Nursing Homes

Physical abuse refers to any type of harm, pain, or injury inflicted on one person by another. Because of aging and deteriorating health, elderly people tend to be more vulnerable to injury. When physically abused, an elderly person may suffer from a number of injuries, including brain injuries, broken or fractured bones, internal bleeding, paralysis, neck or back injuries, and more.

At our firm, we have experience representing victims of all forms of physical abuse, including:

  • Assault and aggravated assault
  • Battery and aggravated battery
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual battery
  • Pushing, kicking, shoving, hitting, punching, etc.
  • Unlawful use of physical restraints
  • Prolonged or continual deprivation of food or water
  • Overmedication
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Burns
  • Cuts, open wounds, welts, bruises, red marks

If you have noticed unexplained injuries on your loved one or other indications that abuse is occurring, do not hesitate to contact Lanier Law Group. Even if you are not completely sure that your loved one has been physically abused, it is always better to be safe than sorry.

Taking Swift Legal Action

If you suspect that your loved one has been physically abused by a caretaker at a nursing home, it is important to contact an experienced North Carolina nursing home abuse attorney who can assist you in taking legal action. Lanier Law Group can guide you through the process of filing criminal charges against the person responsible for your loved one's injuries. We can also help you file a personal injury lawsuit against that individual in civil court.

Not only does your loved one potentially stand to recover compensatory damages for his or her pain and suffering, but he or she could also be awarded punitive damages. Punitive damages are meant to punish those responsible for the abuse and provide a much-needed sense of justice for your elderly loved one and your entire family. Pursuing this course of action can also help to ensure that similar situations do not occur to other innocent victims in the future.

To learn the full range of your rights under North Carolina personal injury law, please don't hesitate to contact a nursing home abuse lawyer at our offices. Call (855) 757-4204 to get started.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
