Knowing The Signs May Save Them Further Suffering
The first step in filing a claim for nursing home neglect or abuse is being able to identify it. The signs of nursing home neglect can come in many forms, and some signs of neglect are more obvious than others. Consider acting if you notice any of the following:
- Unexplained injuries
- Regular bad hygiene
- Poor living conditions
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Sudden changes in behavior or attitude
- Broken bones
- Pressure wounds

Learn The Full Spectrum Of Damage Recovery
Compensation for the injuries suffered from nursing home neglect will depend on the ensuing medical bills and other losses related to the injury.
Such compensation may include recovery for:
- Cost of mental and physical therapy sessions for the victim
- General pain and suffering
- Relocation expenses
- Repayment for the victim’s legal fees
Your legal team and the courts may consider other factors when they determine compensation for your loved one’s neglect. It will all depend on the extent of the injuries and whether other financial losses – such as missing work time – are the results of the injuries.
