Atlanta nursing home abuse lawsuits are a substantial focus of our practice at Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP. Our attorneys have years of experience litigating cases of elder abuse, and know how to defend the rights of your elder loved one.
At Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP, we understand that the decision to place a loved one in a nursing home or long-term care facility is a difficult one. Although these facilities claim that a friendly staff will provide elderly residents with quality medical care, opportunities for exercise and activity, and an appropriate balance of safety and personal freedom, not all of them live up to their promises. That’s why we never take nursing home abuse lawsuits lightly because we understand that you only want the best for your elderly relative or friend.
Possible Signs of Neglect
You may be unaware that there is a problem until long after your loved one has entered one of these facilities. Oftentimes, nursing home abuse lawsuits are filed due to negligence or neglect leading to:
- Unexplained broken bones, wounds or signs of blunt force trauma
- Pressure sores or decubitus ulcers
- Significant changes in behavior
- Unexplained weight loss or dehydration or malnourishment
- Patients who are left unattended for long periods of time
- Staff members fail to respond to calls for help
- Falling patients
- Rough treatment of patients
- Sexual abuse
- Wandering patients
- And several other common signs of abuse
As part of a personal injury law firm, the attorneys at Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP, including partners Nick Moraitakis & Glenn Kushel, pride themselves on their commitment to defending those who cannot defend themselves. We always pursue the maximum amount of damages allowed by law when representing nursing home abuse victims.
