Nursing Home Abuse & Elder Neglect
At the Cambridge law firm of Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry, we represent people who were abused or neglected in nursing homes or other care facilities. We seek redress for the injuries and damages they suffered at the hands of professionals who were supposed to provide care at the accepted standard. We also file wrongful death cases on behalf of families whose loved ones died as a result of the abuse or neglect they suffered in a nursing home.
Our attorneys are caring advocates who spend the time needed to learn about our clients and their situations. We work with experts and specialists in medicine, nursing and physical therapy to learn about the impact of the abuse or neglect on our client and his or her family. As accomplished trial lawyers, we do not hesitate to go to court when needed, but are also effective representatives of our clients' interests in settlement talks and during mediations and arbitrations.Case Examples
We handle cases that involve:
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Sexual abuse by other patients or staff
- Medication errors
- Decubitus ulcers (also known as bed sores or pressure sores)
As part of their licenses to operate, nursing homes have an obligation to meet the accepted standards of care. They cannot use inadequate staffing or poor training as justification for abuse or neglect.
