What can I do if my elderly parent was injured or abused in a nursing home?
We understand how difficult it can be to learn that your elderly parent was abused or neglected in a nursing home and is injured as a result. Your parent does have rights. Either your parent or their legal representative can bring a lawsuit on their behalf, and that lawsuit could be for preventable injuries like from a bed sore or broken bone from being improperly lifted, or from injuries that were the result of an assault.
Contact an attorney. Have your parent contact an attorney as soon as possible to protect their rights.
