Nursing Home Elderly Assault Lawyers Las Vegas

Nursing home abuse can take place on an emotional or verbal level. Assault is defined as any type of violent act committed against another individual.

According to a report on nursing home abuse issued by the U.S. Government Accountability Office, more than 30 percent of all nursing homes in the U.S. have been cited for jeopardizing the health of their elderly patients. What’s more shocking, perhaps, is the fact that about 25 percent of the nursing home staff who are prosecuted for abusing patients have a past criminal record, about 20 percent of which have faced previous charges involving violence and/or theft.

If you suspect that your loved one has been assaulted while in the care of a nursing home, the compassionate, highly skilled nursing home abuse attorneys at Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen are here to help you and your loved one make the nursing home and its negligent staff pay for the injuries and losses sustained as a result of assault.

Our primary goal involves cultivating personalized, professional relationships with our clients so we can put their needs first and to get them through the legal process as efficiently and successfully as possible.

Signs of Nursing Home Assault

It may take some time for the signs of nursing home assault and abuse to become present due to a patient’s shame, dementia or lack of physical complications. When signs do arise, however, they typically include:

  • Abnormal cuts and bruising
  • Bone fractures
  • Inexplicable loss of hair
  • Changes in behavior between the patient and the nursing home staff, or between the nursing home staff and the family members
