Filing a Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuit

® Quick Summary

The warning signs are clear, and now you suspect that your family member or other loved one may be at risk of nursing home abuse. Now is the time to protect your elder and find a safe and comfortable facility for their care.

Here are the next steps for protecting your loved one from nursing home abuse:

  • Report the abuse. You do not need definitive proof that abuse is happening to report it. But reporting suspected abuse may have a positive effect by removing the abuser and preventing them from hurting others. Learn more about how to report nursing home abuse.
  • Discuss other care options with your family. Sometimes a nursing home facility is the best care option for your loved one, but you do have other choices.
  • Become empowered by learning what to look for when choosing the next nursing home or assisted living facility.
