What should I do if I suspect sexual abuse occurred in a nursing home?

Knowing what to do if you suspect nursing home abuse of this nature can be very overwhelming. We understand your confusion. That's why we want to help. As your nursing home abuse lawyer, we strongly recommend you take the following steps:

  • Contact the police
  • Notify the nursing home of your concerns
  • Demand a medical examination of your loved one
  • Request having your loved one moved to a different facility temporarily
  • Contact us

If you are retained by our firm, we can help you every step of the way. We know what evidence to look for and we know how to build strong legal cases, one person at a time.

Sexual abuse may include:

  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual battery
  • Rape

A sexual abuse case can be complex. The victim who is a resident of the nursing home may lack the mental capacity to identify the abuser, or speak even about the abuse.

Why should I hire an Alabama accident attorney to handle my case?

Your case might seem straightforward. Someone else clearly did something to cause the injury to you or your loved one. That's why you might think you don't need a lawyer to resolve your case. You might simply assume that insurance companies will fairly compensate you.

Don't be so sure. Most insurance companies only care about one thing: paying injury victims as little as possible. They don't intimidate us. We know how to handle insurance companies and we have the case results to prove it. Call 866-583-1885 and schedule a free case evaluation.

As contingency fee lawyers, we don't charge clients any fees for personal injury cases unless there is a successful recovery.
