Know Your Rights If An Elderly Loved One Is Experiencing Abuse
Nursing homes and other long-term care facilities are responsible for providing a safe place for the elderly, who are often vulnerable to illness and injury. Too often, however, poor policies and substandard care result in neglect and abuse that can harm nursing home residents.
At Maples, Nix & Diesselhorst Attorneys At Law, we believe that all people deserve safe conditions, human dignity and access to justice in the Oklahoma City area. Our elder abuse lawyers assist nursing home residents and their families, protecting their rights and holding negligent facilities responsible.
Standing With You
Many of our clients are hesitant to file a lawsuit against a nursing home or another negligent party. However, pursuing legal action is important because it can help you secure fair compensation for your losses, and because it acts as a safeguard to discourage similar conduct in other nursing homes.
We encourage you to call us at 800-539-0652 for a consultation if you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of emotional, financial or physical elder abuse, which may include:
- Pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores
- Dehydration or malnutrition
- Poor hygiene
- Wandering off
- Falls caused by improper supervision
- Physical injuries such as bruises, broken bones or welts
- Withdrawn or anxious behavior
Our on-staff nursing professionals and investigators know how to identify elder abuse, and our lawyers are dedicated to fighting it in court. We are proud to protect the interests of our clients and their families.
