Both nursing home abuse and neglect are unacceptable and can lead to tragic outcomes for residents. Many people whose loved ones are in nursing homes are understandably concerned about the level of care and attention they receive, and they’re typically on high alert for signs of abuse. When residents are abused, they often show physical or emotional signs of it. Unfortunately, neglect is much more difficult to detect and can go unrecognized for years.
To make matters worse, neglect can be more easily denied than abuse. That can make it more difficult for the families of neglected residents to file complaints against their nursing homes or take legal action against them. If this is the case for your family, having an experienced Virginia nursing home abuse lawyer on your side can tip the scales in your favor towards getting the money you’re owed.
