Nursing Home Abuse in Texas
The Nation’s elderly population is growing faster than any other age group, and as a result, nursing homes and care facilities are filling up, and the need for new facilities is on the rise. However, the sad reality is that as senior citizens increasingly enter nursing homes and other care facilities, many of them will not receive the care they need and deserve because they are abused or neglected by their caregivers.
Some statistics reveal that in the United States, every year there are more than two million cases of reported abuse of older and vulnerable adults. Sadly, because the majority of abuse incidents are unreported, this number is probably only a fraction of abuse or neglect that actually occurs. Much of this abuse occurs in the facilities to which we entrust the care of our loved ones, and the abuse that the residents of these facilities may endure can include neglect, exploitation, and financial extortion. With abuse and neglect comes injuries that include broken bones or lacerations, bruises, infections, illnesses, and in some cases, even death may occur. Because many of our senior citizens who are abused cannot or will not speak for themselves, our Texas Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys are here to provide these victims of abuse and neglect with a voice so that their rights are protected.
If your loved one is a resident of a nursing home or other care facility and you believe that they have been abused or neglected, the knowledgeable and experienced attorneys at Robins Cloud LLP will fight to make sure they are adequately compensated for any injuries they’ve sustained.
If you have a loved one living in a nursing home or other care facility, you should probably learn the tell-tale signs and symptoms of neglect, abuse, and exploitation. This can be especially important if your loved one can no longer communicate with you or they refuse to inform you of any negative experiences with caregivers.
