Nursing Home Neglect & Elder Abuse
When we place a family member in a nursing home, we expect that their needs will be taken care of and they will be protected from harm. It is a shattering betrayal of trust when we find out a loved one’s needs were neglected and they were subjected to harm.
At Harmon & Gorove, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of injured and abused elders in Newnan and throughout Coweta County and surrounding areas.
Through aggressive legal advocacy, we not only help our clients, but we also work to make Georgia nursing homes safer for current and future residents.
How Has Your Loved One Suffered?
We handle a broad range of nursing home negligence lawsuits, including those in which abused and neglected elders have suffered:
- Decubitus ulcers (bedsores or pressure sores)
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Injuries from physical restraints
- Injuries from overmedication
- Repeated falls
- Injuries while wandering off the premises
- Physical abuse
If your loved one shows signs of dehydration, malnutrition, repeated falls or overmedication, he or she clearly needs more responsive care, especially if there is no medical reason for these issues.
We will investigate your loved one’s care to determine how an injury occurred and who is to blame. We are committed to ensuring that all seniors live with the dignity, comfort and respect they deserve and to showing neglectful corporations that it is not acceptable to mistreat patients.
