Signs of Elder Neglect & Misconduct

Are you concerned that your family member has suffered abuse in a nursing home or an assisted living facility? Many elderly people require special care and are more susceptible to injury, and families who choose to place a loved one in a nursing home generally do so in the expectation that the facility will provide a safe and comfortable environment. There are unfortunately many cases on record of nursing home abuse, either due to the understaffing of the facility or out of an individual employee's cruelty.

If you believe that your loved one is being abused, you need to seek experienced legal representation as soon as possible. Our Jacksonville nursing home abuse lawyers at The Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. have spent years working with people facing all types of serious and traumatic situations.

Contact our firm today to learn more about what we can do to help you and your family.

Is Your Loved One Being Abused?

Some common signs that your family member may be the victim of abuse or neglect include:

  • Behavioral changes such as depression or sullenness, irritability or anxiety
  • Unexplained bruises or broken bones
  • Filthy living quarters
  • Extreme thirst or dehydration
  • Sudden weight loss or other signs of malnutrition
  • Nursing home staff attempting to prevent your visits
  • Frequent complaints directed at a particular staff member

The Jacksonville nursing home abuse attorneys at Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. are available to meet with you to discuss your concerns and determine a plan for taking legal action.

The victims of nursing home abuse often have difficulty communicating about the situation, out of shame or fear of retaliation. If you have suspicions that there is something wrong, you should urge your loved one to speak up, with encouragement that there is help available in seeking justice. Nursing homes are entrusted with the care of individuals who are often weak and vulnerable, and courts and juries in our area look unfavorably on any type of abuse or neglect and are often willing to award a considerable personal injury settlement in favor of the victim.

    "Aggressive and Compassionate. Highly Recommend."
    I'd been accused of something I did not do. My situation was a total nightmare. I consulted with Attorney Porter and he assured me that my tough situation could be handled. Attorney Gary Shumar tirelessly worked my case, while showing patience and empathy when I felt frustrated. Needless to say, my charges were dropped. I highly recommend this firm.
