  • Ensure your loved one is evaluated by a trusted medical professional who can properly care for them and formulate a complete report of the abuses that occurred.

Nursing home abuse arises in various ways in Phoenix

According to data available from the National Council on Aging, approximately one out of every ten people over the age of 65 will experience some form of elder abuse each year across the country. Unfortunately, much of this abuse occurs in nursing homes where elderly residents are more vulnerable to various types of abuses.

At the Younglove Law Firm, we have handled various types of nursing abuse, including those arising due to the following:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Emotional and psychological abuse
  • Financial abuse and fraud
  • Neglect of basic necessities

Most types of elder abuse that occur in the nursing home setting are difficult to detect. Friends and family members who suspect that their loved one has been abused need to report the incident to law enforcement and seek immediate assistance from a Phoenix nursing home abuse lawyer.

Types of compensation available in these cases

There may be various types of compensation available to victims (and their families) of nursing home abuse. At the Younglove Law Firm, we are regularly able to help victims in these cases secure the following types of compensation:

  • Coverage of any medical bills related to abuse injuries
  • Compensation for relocation to a new facility
  • Reimbursement of the cost to live at the current facility
