Elderly residents are particularly susceptible to physical abuse, the use of physical force or violence to cause bodily harm, injury, or pain to an individual.

Besides direct physical abuse, nursing homes and assisted facilities can also be held accountable for allowing another person to cause injury to their elderly residents. For example, if the facility administrators are aware of a resident’s past violent history but do not take all precautions necessary to prevent physical abuse to the other residents, the facility can be held responsible for the actions of the violent individual.

If you or a loved one has been harmed as a result of physical abuse, the nursing home or assisted living facility may be held accountable. Our attorneys have experience representing victims and families who have been harmed by nursing home and assisted living facility neglect and abuse.
