Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Attorneys working to protect Eastern Connecticut seniors from abuse and neglect

We rely on nursing homes to provide quality care for our parents and other aging loved ones. Unfortunately, the residents in these facilities can sometimes be the victims of abuse or neglect. Factors such as shrinking budgets, underpaid staff, insufficient training, and lack of compliance with applicable regulations can create an environment where abuse and neglect is more likely.

Anderson Trial Lawyers will fight passionately for your elderly parent or close relative if they have suffered from nursing home abuse or neglect. We know that holding those responsible to account not only helps to restore your loved ones’ rights and dignity, but also serves to protect against the mistreatment of others.

Examples Of Elder Abuse

Examples of abuse and neglect caused by caregivers includes:

  • Physical or sexual abuse
  • Being left unattended
  • Errors in administering medications
  • Inadequate nutrition, hydration, or sanitation
  • Bedsores and other infections caused by lack of care

How We Can Help

Our trial attorneys know that when abuse and neglect occurs, there is often a trail of past complaints and violations. When representing you, we work to uncover this evidence to support your claim. We are also familiar with state and federal laws that are relevant to nursing homes.

We use our knowledge and investigative skills to seek justice for your loved ones and protect them against the feelings of helplessness that come with being abused and neglected in their place of residence.

I could not have asked for an easier, stress free way to handle my legal business. I dealt with Mike mostly and it was a pleasure, but the staff was great too! Definitely a positive experience and a PROFESSIONAL I'm glad to have in my circle.

For thirty years, we have never faced a vendor-related contract failure... but it finally happened.We turned to the compassionate team at Anderson and Anderson, for our goal was a resolution that met the needs of clients and agency but didn't turn into something nasty or not reflective of our corporate culture.Chris and his team at Anderson and Anderson were professional, calm and supportive. Through a strong and guiding presence, they helped us successfully negotiate a settlement with a vendor that failed to deliver as promised.While it was a challenge to experience this process, Chris translated the legal-ease and clearly protected our best interests and that of our client. We could not have been more pleased or grateful for his guidance and support.I can clearly envision how he would protect those injured and in need of a skilled advocate. We had to go to court, and other clients may have to do so, as well. Ultimately it really matters who you choose to be your representative: someone who says "they will fight for you," or someone who has a proven record of walking into a courtroom to fight on your behalf.
