Laughlin Personal Injury Attorneys

Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Laughlin

The unincorporated town of Laughlin is situated at the southern tip of Nevada, approximately 90 miles from Las Vegas. Laughlin has a desert climate which is characterized by dry and very hot summers and mild winters.

Here there are numerous opportunities for gaming, entertainment and water recreation and other outdoor and family activities. Laughlin is a family-friendly holiday destination, particularly for RV enthusiasts.

Laughlin is named after Don Laughlin, a prominent casino operator in the 1960’s. In addition to the resort casinos and hotels in the area, annual town events such as the Talent Quest National Finals and New Year’s Day celebrations continually draw tourists to Laughlin all year round.

Aging Population

Laughlin has a total land area of 88 square miles and a population of 7,323. Majority of its residents are aged 45 and older, while the median age is 46 years old. As its population matures, there is the increased potential for Laughlin’s elderly to become victims of elder or nursing home abuse.

Elder abuse is a common problem across nursing homes in the United States. It can take various forms such as:

  • Physical elder abuse
  • Emotional elder abuse
  • False imprisonment
  • Financial exploitation
  • Negligence and
  • Abandonment

Signs of Elder Abuse or Neglect

Many elderly patients do not report abusive behavior to their own families. Regular visits to your loved one or family member in the nursing home must also include checking for signs of neglect or abuse.

These include:

  • Abrupt changes in behavior
  • Unresponsive or agitated behavior
  • Unexplained appearance of physical injuries such as lacerations, broken ones, welts and bruises.
  • Untreated injuries
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration

Vigilance is essential in order to minimize or prevent severe injury resulting from nursing home abuse.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding the injury, your elderly relative may be entitled to compensation for injuries sustained, pain and suffering and other costs arising from the fault or negligence of the nursing home caregivers or other personnel.

Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen, your Las Vegas elder abuse attorney can provide appropriate legal advice and representation in order to obtain a full and fair settlement of your family member’s injuries.

Nevada tort law sets the minimum age for filing an elder abuse injury claim at 60 years old. Pinpointing legal responsibility and gathering sufficient evidence of your claim can be a complex process. Our compassionate and highly-skilled personal injury lawyers have considerable experience in nursing home abuse claims, and consider it an honor to fight for the rights of Laughlin’s senior citizens.
