California Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

Physical, financial, sexual and emotional abuse in nursing home residences is one of the ugly truths of the American health care system. In no way is it part of the "care" people are promised when they make the difficult decision to trust a loved one to such a facility.

No matter what form it takes, abuse in a nursing home is wrong and can only continue through the silence of those who know about it or suspect it. Contacting an elderly abuse attorney is one of the most important steps you can take to stop it. Contact us today.

At Young & Wallin, we represent elderly victims of physical and sexual abuse in nursing home residences and handle such cases throughout the state of California. Our practice is about fighting to protect and preserve our clients' dignity and about fighting to obtain justice and compensation on their behalf.

Physical AbusePhysical abuse can be subtle or overt, and may be committed by either a staff member or another resident. More subtle actions can include the kind of grabbing, pushing, pinching or arm-twisting that abusive staff members will use to control a resident. This also can, especially when it occurs in a pattern that is repeated over time, inflict a tremendous amount of emotional abuse. Victims of repeated physical abuse become fearful of reporting the incidents, ashamed, and withdrawn or depressed. More overt actions such as punching or kicking are rarer, but cause even more damaging effects.

Sexual abuse is a form of both physical abuse and emotional abuse. Sexual abuse can be so damaging emotionally, the victim can literally lose their will to live afterward. In all cases of physical or sexual abuse, signs to look for include bruising and emotional withdrawal, agitation or depression.

Because we used to work defending care providers against these claims, we know how abuse can happen in a nursing home and how the insurance companies will try to defeat these claims. We want to put that experience to work for you if you or someone you love has been abused or neglected in a nursing care situation.
