At Danziger & De Llano, we have assembled a team of professional, compassionate lawyers who are dedicated to seeking justice on behalf of people who have been taken advantage of by more powerful entities. Nowhere is this truer than when it comes to nursing home abuse cases.
Abuse and neglect can happen to any resident of a nursing home, and the damage that is done can range from financial, to emotional, to physical harm. All of these can cause pain and suffering, and physical harm or neglect that is left unchecked can end up resulting in death.
With nursing homes becoming more and more in demand, the possibility of abuse taking place has grown, but Danziger & De Llano are working hard to put a stop to this horrific practice.

Why Does Nursing Home Abuse Take Place?
All too often, family members and friends of those who are being abused in a nursing home may suspect that something isn’t quite right, but they tell themselves that they’re worrying needlessly. The victims of abuse and neglect are often afraid to speak up, or are unable to because of their physical condition.
Nursing homes are notoriously understaffed, and often administrators’ concern for their patients is more monetary than compassionate. Once a patient is under contract many administrators stop worrying about the patients’ well-being, and that is when staff members who are undereducated, overworked and angry may take their frustrations out on patients.
You chose your loved ones nursing home with an eye to providing the best possible environment, but nobody knows when nursing home abuse is going to take place. If you suspect that your loved one is being hurt or neglected, call the nursing home abuse lawyers at Danziger & De Llano today for immediate help.
Abuse versus Neglect
We can’t be with our loved ones every minute, so it is vitally important to keep a careful eye on their condition to make sure that their spirit is good and that everything is as it should be. There are a number of important signs to be on the lookout for, especially because our loved ones frequently can’t, or don’t, speak up for themselves.
It is also important to know the difference between abuse and neglect. Abuse is where action is being taken to hurt the patient, while neglect is where they receive little or none of the attention that they need. The end result in both cases can be life threatening.
If your loved one is showing signs of neglect or abuse at the hands of their caregivers in the nursing home, don’t let another day go by.

Determining Whether Neglect or Abuse Took Place
When you call Danziger & De Llano about your concerns, the very first thing that we will do is ask a number of questions to determine whether neglect or abuse took place. We will ask you what has caused your suspicions and whether you have any kind of evidence to support your concerns, and we will then begin our investigation.
There are a number of signs that are consistent with nursing home abuse, and if any of these are present they will be used as evidence to support our case against the nursing home and to get your loved one into a safe place.
Signs of abuse include:
Missing money, jewelry or other possessions,
Signs of fear or withdrawal in your loved one
Signs of neglect include:
Pill bottle with surplus of pills in it
People of all ages are put into nursing homes so that they can get the care and attention that they need, and if there are indications that they are not being cared for, action must be taken. Whenever there are questions or circumstances that give rise to fears about nursing home neglect, they are valid reasons for concern and action should be taken immediately.
