Occurrences of nursing home neglect are rarely reported to the property law enforcement authorities. Fear, embarrassment and worry over retaliation can cause even the nursing home resident to keep quiet to family, friends, and others in charge at the nursing home. Even worse, family and friends may not recognize the signs of nursing home neglect.
If you notice that your family member or loved one exhibits any of the warning signs of nursing home neglect, go immediately to the proper authorities and report it. Warning signs may include any of the following signs of neglect, physical injuries and emotional or behavioral changes:
- Soiled bedding
- Poor hygiene
- Bed Sores
- Broken Bones
- Head Injury
- Complaints of abuse, neglect or poor treatment

Nursing home abuse and neglect is a sad fact of elder care in our day and age. From overcrowding to underpaid and unskilled workers, the standard of care in many nursing homes leaves a lot to be desired for many patients. If you find yourself or your loved one in a situation where nursing home neglect or abuse is happening, call Foy and Associates for a consultation how what your nursing claim is worth. We are an experienced law firm dedicated to defending and preserving our clients’ rights.
There are no hard and fast rules or standards that measure how a specific instance of nursing home negligence or nursing home abuse will be evaluated. The experienced attorneys at Foy and Associates will look at the facts of your situation and examine them thoroughly to determine if you have a case, and what the size of the settlement you can expect is.
Some factors that may contribute to the determination of the value of your nursing home claim are:
- Was the nursing home violating normal standards of care?
- Whose negligence directly caused the injuries?
- Was understaffing a reason for the neglect?
- The nature and extent of injury
- Did you require surgery and hospitalization?
- How much were your related medical expenses to the incident?
Foy and Associates will dedicate themselves to obtaining justice on your behalf or the behalf of your loved one.
The fact is that most nursing home abuse cases result in a settlement long before they get to an actual trial. The amount of a settlement depends on how well your case has been prepared, the types of witnesses and documentation submitted on your behalf, and the passion and dedication of your lawyers in doggedly pursuing the maximum compensation for your injuries.
At the law offices of Foy and Associates, we are dedicated to standing up for the rights of the injured and vulnerable. We will go to battle with the nursing home, your insurance company, your doctor and anyone else tangentially responsible for the nursing home abuse or nursing home neglect.
