There are various state and federal laws pertaining to nursing home abuse that may prove valuable in handling any incidents that arise involving an elderly family member or loved one. In some cases, an abusive caregiver may face criminal charges. In other situations, you may be able to take action in civil court to seek financial compensation for the injuries sustained. This can not only help the abuse from continuing to occur but can help you recover money that will cover medical expenses, future medical care and other damages.

An elderly patient in a nursing home has the right to proper treatment and care, free from abuse. To find out more about your rights in these matters and to stop abuse or neglect from continuing, contact The Law Offices of Jason B. Kessler. Se habla espanol.
