Protecting Your Rights & Fighting for Compensation
We hope that our loved ones will live out their twilight years in peace and comfort. Unfortunately, problems involving nursing home neglect and abuse of the elderly are far too real.

Bed Sores & Other Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
Although abuse may come from physical actions undertaken by nursing home staff, neglect is a form of abuse as well. It is important to seek advice from our San Francisco personal injury attorneys if you notice certain signs.
If you notice the following signs, your loved one may be the victim of elder abuse:
- Bed sores
- Weight loss resulting from malnutrition
- Unsupervised wandering both inside and outside of the facility
- Bruising caused by the use of restraints
- Broken bones
It can sometimes be difficult to tell whether an injury is the result of physical abuse or neglect, or just part of the aging process. If you have any concerns, it may be best to seek out legal counsel.
Holding All Parties Accountable
When it comes to seeking financial compensation, we will work to hold all negligent parties accountable. An individual staff member who abuses or neglects a resident may certainly be liable for their injuries. However, the staff member may have been following policies set in place by the care center’s owner. In this case, the company that owns the residence will be liable as well. We will search out all responsible parties and work to hold them accountable in an effort to ensure that these inexcusable mistakes are not repeated in the future.
