Meeting the Challenge of Proof
If your parent or other loved one has been abused in a nursing home, the case will likely be challenging to prove. Who committed the abuse? What exactly occurred? What additional negligence allowed for the event to occur? What is the extent of your loved one’s injuries?
We have investigated thousands of injury cases and many dozens of nursing home injury cases. We are skilled and knowledgeable regarding subpoenaing documents, identifying and interviewing witnesses, and building the strongest possible case. We have succeeded in obtaining high-value results in numerous nursing home abuse lawsuits. Nursing home abuse law isn’t a business to us. Instead, it is a mission to help people of all ages who have suffered injuries and abuse through no fault of their own.
Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
Don’t put up with substandard nursing home care. Nursing home neglect can lead to serious injury and even wrongful death. If you have a loved one in a nursing home, it is important to look for warning signs of nursing home neglect. Taking note of warning signs early on can spare your loved one significant pain and suffering.
At Colucci Colucci Marcus Flavin, P.C., we have extensive experience handling nursing home abuse cases for clients from the Boston area and throughout Massachusetts. If you suspect your loved one has been subjected to nursing home abuse or neglect, some of the warning signs include:
- Neglect: Signs of nursing home neglect include sudden weight loss, malnutrition, dehydration, bedsores, untreated infections, improper grooming, and unsanitary living conditions.
- Physical Abuse: Signs of physical abuse include unexplained bruises, lacerations, broken bones, and other injuries. Missing hair and restraint marks on the wrists and ankles may also be signs of physical abuse.
