Milwaukee Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Representation for Elder Abuse Victims in Milwaukee & Southeast Wisconsin
When you place a loved one in a nursing home, you expect him or her to be cared for and watched over by professional staff members who can help meet your elderly family member's needs. Determining that it is time to place an elderly family member into a nursing home can be stressful, but most families feel that the care a senior may receive in an assisted living facility or nursing home would be significantly better than what they could provide themselves.
These types of facilities are held to state and federal standards, and while most are legitimate and proper care homes, some may fail to live up to the legal standard of care. If you feel that your loved one has been abused, mistreated, or neglected at a nursing home facility, you need to work with a Milwaukee personal injury lawyer from Cannon & Dunphy right away.
When you retain the services of our team, we can investigate every aspect of your case and help determine what wrongs took place. In most situations, negligence plays a huge role in abuse; however, there may be multiple factors to consider. Abuse can take many forms, and if you have noticed that your loved one is acting strangely or out of character, has unexplained sores or bruises, or has told you about specific instances of abuse at the facility, Cannon & Dunphy S.C. can help.
Some signs to look for may include:
- Cuts and bruises
- Poor hygiene
- Insufficient diet
- Sprains or broken bones
- Unexplained purchases or money transfers
Of course, no two situations are ever the same, and without the representation of an attorney, it may be difficult to prove that nursing home abuse occurred. If your loved one is being mistreated, or they suddenly and unexpectedly died, you need to work with our team as soon as possible.
