Nursing Home Abuse in Houston, TX
Houston Elderly Abuse Attorney
As we age, we hope to be taken care of by our family or nursing homes and enjoy our twilight years in calm serenity. Many individuals decide to live in nursing homes or with assisted living to reduce the burden on their families. Unfortunately, elderly abuse occurs on a daily basis, leaving many of our elders suffering from unnecessary pain and humiliation. People who are being abused in nursing homes or who have sustained severe injuries from accidents oftentimes do not speak up about their situations. If you suspect that a loved one may have suffered an accident or is being abused you need to contact a Houston injury attorney as soon as possible.
More than 1.5 million American elderly individuals are being provided services through nursing homes and assisted living facilities. With so many people in nursing homes, injuries can sometimes be sustained. Various types of nursing home abuse suffered by nursing home abuse victims include withholding of medications, bedsores and restrains, mental and physical abuse and even sexual abuse. There have been cases of elderly individuals slipping and falling and not being provided the proper treatment that they deserve.
How do I help my loved one?
It is difficult for a family member to realize that someone they care about is suffering from abuse or an accident in a nursing home that is not being treated. These accidents are generally avoidable, which makes it even more difficult to imagine that the injury was sustained in the first place. If your loved one has suffered unnecessarily because of someone else's negligence, it is important that you work with Nielsen & Mukerji, LLP. We are proud to be strong trial litigators and offer quality legal representation for our clients.
