What Compensation Is Available for Nursing Home Abuse Victims?

by Staff Blogger | July 2nd, 2019

Nursing homes are supposed to be safe places where senior citizens and people with debilitating health problems can get the treatment and care they need. But when nursing homes value profits over the safety and security of their residents, serious injuries and complications can occur due to abuse and neglect.

At Cofman Townsley, our St. Louis nursing home abuse lawyers have no tolerance for nursing homes that allow staff members to mistreat residents. Whether residents are neglected or physically, verbally, emotionally, or sexually abused, we hold the responsible staff members and nursing home administrators and owners accountable for the pain and suffering they cause to innocent victims.

If your loved one was harmed while living in a nursing home, your family may be eligible for the following types of compensation:

  • Medical bills—Your loved may need medical treatments to recover from complications associated with abuse and neglect. Those treatments may include prescription medications, physical and psychological rehabilitation, and even surgery.
  • Pain and suffering—The emotional toll of abuse and neglect can have a wide-reaching and long-lasting impact on survivors. Affected nursing home residents may develop anxiety, depression, and even post-traumatic stress disorder, all of which can interfere with their lives.

Our legal team knows the devastating effect of nursing home abuse and neglect, and we want to help you get every penny you deserve. Contact us today for a free consultation and to find out how we can put our years of experience to work for you.
