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.
