Elder Care Abuse

Your loved ones should be safe and provided quality care when they are being provided care in a nursing home, personal care home or independent living facility. Unfortunately, many elderly or incapacitated individuals suffer injuries and other trauma as the result of negligence on behalf of the staff of an elder care facility.

At the Pennsylvania law office of West & Associates, P.C., we offer experienced representation to individuals that are concerned about the safety and well-being of loved ones that are in a nursing home, personal care home or other independent living facility. Lead by attorney Art West, we are dedicated to helping clients understand their rights and determining the best way in which to remedy an injury or death that took place in a senior care facility.

Senior care residents may suffer:

  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Unsafe living conditions
  • Patient given the wrong medication
  • Bedsores
  • Various personal injuries
  • Injuries from falls
  • Inadequate medical care
  • Assault (sexual and physical)
  • Death

Both the nursing home, personal care home and staff may be held responsible.

If an individual employee is not held responsible for the injuries sustained, then the senior care facility could be held accountable. This is why it is so important to learn as much as possible about a situation in which the injuries were caused at a personal care home or independent living facility.
