Our lawyers have the experience and knowledge to help your family obtain compensation for the suffering and humiliation your loved one has endured.

Types of nursing home negligence

There are many forms of nursing home abuse: negligence and neglect are among them. As soon as you suspect that you or your relative is the victim of nursing home negligence in North Carolina, seek legal help. At Lanier Law Group, P.A., we work diligently to uncover who is responsible for causing your family pain. Here are some common types of nursing home negligence and neglect that occur in towns like Durham and Asheville:

  • Physical abuse: Hitting, kicking and pushing a patient constitute physical abuse. Depriving a patient of food, water or basic hygiene also is abuse.
  • Psychological abuse: Psychological harassment and degradation by staff members can cause emotional trauma and depression.
  • Financial abuse: Financial abuse can occur on a small scale — the theft of toiletries and personal items — or on a larger scale and involve identity theft or bank fraud. In many cases, financial abuse goes unnoticed by the victim.
  • Sexual abuse: A patient may be sexually assaulted or abused by nursing home staff.
  • Neglect. If your loved one has developed bedsores, or if his/her health is starting to deteriorate, the nursing home could be neglecting him/her.

If you or a relative has been the victim of nursing home negligence from Burlington to Winston-Salem, let our experienced legal team investigate your case and possibly file suit against whoever may have caused the harm.
