Many elders fall victim to abuse each year at the hands of caregivers within nursing home facilities. For every case reported it is said that five more go unreported. Many of which include physical abuse by entrusted caregivers leading to serious injury and in many cases even wrongful death. Physical abuse occurs within a nursing home facility when a trusted caregiver causes physical harm to an elder who is under their care.
Signs of physical abuse include, but are not limited to:
If you believe that a loved one or a family member is the victim of elder abuse in a heath care facility that includes physical abuse, then you should contact a Phoenix physical abuse attorney immediately. At Goldwater Law Firm, PC we help victims of physical abuse seek the justice they deserve by filing suit on their behalf for personal injury, medical malpractice or wrongful death claims.
When elder abuse is suspected it is always very important to take pictures of any injuries, take notes and document the name of any individual that you suspect may be abusing your loved one. It is very important to collect this information if you can without making others aware of what you are doing so that they do not try to cover up any allegations.
