Established over twenty years ago, the law firm of Danziger & De Llano has earned a national reputation for fighting for the rights of those who have been harmed or taken advantage of, and we are particularly proud of the work we have done on behalf of those who need representation by experienced nursing home abuse lawyers.

When a patient in a nursing home is abused or neglected, it is a betrayal of a profound trust, and it can have extremely serious repercussions. Nursing home patients are extremely vulnerable, and when it is suspected immediate action needs to be taken, both to protect the victim and to stop the crime from being committed against any others.

If someone that you care about has been harmed while under the care of a nursing home or extended care facility, you need the representation of a firm that will be compassionate with you but tough on those who are responsible for the injury.

At Danziger & De Llano we understand your fear and your concerns and take the time to answer all of your questions and put your mind at ease, but we pursue the responsible parties aggressively, investigating claims, checking medical records, interviewing witnesses, all with an eye to getting justice and the highest possible compensation for the victim’s medical expenses, pain and suffering.

Danziger & De Llano Are Experienced Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

When nursing home abuse occurs, it is often difficult to root out exactly what happened. In the worst cases, the victim dies as a result of their injuries, or is in a coma or in some other way traumatized and unable to provide answers to questions.

Even when families are fortunate enough to detect and act on abuse before the worst happens, victims may be too confused or intimidated to provide the kind of information that is needed to conduct a proper investigation. This is why it is so important to enlist the services of an experienced nursing home attorney like the experienced professionals at Danziger & De Llano.

Nursing home operations follow a strict set of standards and guidelines, and an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer is familiar with exactly who to speak with, what questions to ask and what documents to inspect in order to determine what kind of care has been provided to your loved one.

The personal injury lawyers at Danziger & De Llano will pursue the truth vigorously, finding the perpetrator of the abuse and holding the nursing home responsible for not providing the kind of care that is required by law, that they promised, and that your loved one deserves.

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

There are a number of reasons that nursing home residents have been subject to abuse and neglect. Nursing home care is becoming a greater and greater need, and finding trained and qualified staff is very difficult, particularly because many of the jobs that are available do not pay well.

Because nursing homes provide for every aspect of life care for their residents, there are a number of staff members who come into contact with patients, and they are often not familiar with the difficulties of working with a geriatric population. Nursing home residents can be demanding or confused, and this can be frustrating for staff working long hours for little pay. Abuse can be the result.

If you are worried that a nursing home resident that you care for may be subject to nursing home abuse or neglect, there are several telltale signs that you should watch out for. These include:

  • Broken bones

  • Bruises

  • Sprains

  • Signs that restraints are being used

  • Bedsores

  • Increased confusion or fearfulness

  • Poor hygiene, dirty sheets, unchanged diapers

  • Malnutrition or dehydration
