Every year, many Americans make the difficult decision to admit a parent or loved one into a nursing home or similar care facility. The reasons can vary but they include:

  • The person being too old or infirm to care for him/herself
  • No availability to care for the person outside of a facility
  • Financial difficulties in hiring personal care

No matter the reason, each facility has the responsibility to provide proper care for patients. Unfortunately, this responsibility can sometimes be exploited and abused by workers at the facility. Nursing home abuse, as it is referred to, can include but is not limited to:

  • Physical mistreatment
  • Sexual abuse
  • Neglect
  • Verbal abuse

If it is suspected that a loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse, a highly skilled personal injury attorney from the J. Gonzalez Injury Attorneys of McAllen can help. Although filing a lawsuit will not erase the pain your loved one may have experienced, it is the first step to making guilty parties accountable for their actions.[:]
