Nursing Home Neglect in Connecticut
Counsel from an Aggressive Hartford Personal Injury Attorney
For most families, the decision to place an elderly or disabled family member in a nursing home is an emotional one. It is difficult to leave a loved one in a new residence and—more importantly—entrust their care to others. While nursing homes are often staffed with caring personnel, mistakes and neglect are known to happen. This kind of negligence can be particularly harmful to residents who are already in vulnerable state of health.
If you believe that your loved one was a victim of nursing home neglect, then the time to speak to legal counsel is now. Our dedicated legal team at Zayas Law Firm is prepared to hear your story, examine the circumstances of your claim, and—if necessary—start aggressively pursuing compensation on you and your family's behalf.
We are ready to hear from you. Contact us today for a free consultation.
Some Common Signs of Nursing Home Neglect
Often, nursing home neglect can be hard to detect. Loved ones visiting nursing home residents are only present a limited amount of time and neglect can be ongoing for a long time before anyone suspects any wrongdoing. However, neglect can lead to ongoing discomfort and even serious health consequences if left unaddressed.
These signs include, but are not limited to:
- Dramatic weight loss
- Dehydration and/or malnutrition
- Pressure ulcers
- Behavioral changes
- Changes in personal hygiene
- Decreased or cold interaction with staff
- Dangerous conditions on resident grounds
Filing a nursing home neglect claim can often mean taking action against a large healthcare company with significant resources. This, however, does not mean you and your family should shy away from filing suit. At Zayas Law Firm, we never charge our clients until we recover compensation on their behalf. That way, our clients always have the means they need to take aggressive and thorough legal action.
