Five Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse is shockingly common. Even in homes where everything seems fine, residents may face emotional and physical abuse that remains unseen. You can help to protect your loved one against these types of abuse by making frequent visits to their residence, but unless you know what to look for, you may overlook more subtle signs of mistreatment.

WLRC to Challenge Georgia Damage Caps

On March 9th, 2022, Watkins, Lourie, Roll & Chance helped to secure a record-breaking $15.3 million jury verdict for Michelle McKinney, daughter of Lucille Dubose, who passed while under the care of the Life Care Center of Lawrenceville. Mrs. Dubose was admitted to the facility in November of 2016. A short month later, following complications from severe dehydration and infection from untreated pressure wounds (bed sores), Mrs. Dubose passed.

Nursing home abuse and neglect is unbelievably common. Tragically, the National Council on Aging has found that only a handful of these cases are even reported. If you are being mistreated by nursing home staff or if you suspect a loved one is suffering abuse or neglect in their care facility, it is important to take swift legal action to help prevent future indignities and to restore safety and security. 

But who is entitled to take legal action against a nursing home?
