Fighting for the Rights Of Those Injured by Negligent or Careless Actions

Boston Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

Was Your Loved One Mistreated in a Nursing Home?

You sent a loved one to a nursing home so that they could receive the care and services they need. The last thing you would want is to know that your loved one has been harmed in an act of negligence, neglect, or abuse at the very hands of the care provider. These willful or negligent acts are devastating. No one wants to believe nursing home horror stories could happen to them or their very own loved ones.

With the placement of the elderly in nursing homes and other residential care facilities becoming more common, According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, the prevalence of elder abuse is approximately 10%, including physical abuse, psychological abuse, sexual abuse, financial exploitation, and neglect. In the state of New York alone, one in every thirteen elders had been a victim of abuse.

Are there signs of abuse or neglect at your loved one's nursing home? Call (617) 934-3207 for a free consultation with our experienced nursing home abuse lawyers in Boston.

Nursing Homes Have a Legal & Moral Responsibility To Their Residents

A nursing home that accepts Medicare is required under federal regulation 42 CFR sec. 483.25 (h) to ensure that the resident environment remains as free of accident hazards as possible, and that a resident receives adequate supervision and assistance devices to prevent accidents. If you or a loved one was harmed by a nursing home, convalescent home, rest home, or elder care facility you may have a personal injury or medical malpractice claim. Abuse of an elderly person can come in many forms, including physical, psychological, financial, hospitalizations & disability, medical, and others.

Common behaviors that may entitle you to a claim includes:

  • Failure by the care facility to keep the premises reasonably safe from hazards.
  • Negligent hiring of staff.
  • Negligent training and supervision of staff.
  • Negligent supervision of residents.
  • Failure to provide and maintain sanitary living conditions.
  • Failure to provide the medical standard of care expected for each circumstance.
  • Sexual Assaults of residents.
