How Can We Help?

Bowling Green Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

According to the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS), approximately 30,000 incidents of elder abuse occurred in the state in 2015 alone. And since many older adults do not realize they are being abused, and many more are afraid to speak up because they depend on their abusers for basic care, the real number is likely much larger.

If you suspect or know that your loved one suffered abuse or neglect in a nursing home, Hughes & Coleman Injury Lawyers can help you recover damages. Our Bowling Green nursing home abuse lawyers hold caregivers and facilities responsible for abuse and neglect. We want to put our resources and successful track record to work for you.

We Handle All Types of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect in Kentucky

Sadly, the list of ways in which nursing home residents have the potential to be taken advantage of is long. Not all of them present obvious signs, either. And because your loved one may not be capable of letting you know what is happening (or may be scared of the consequences), it is up to you to be alert to any signs of neglect or abuse.

Here are some of the forms of nursing home abuse for which we have held caregivers accountable and helped our clients recover damages:

Physical Abuse

Physical abuse is any contact between a caregiver and a resident that is unwanted or unnecessary. Caregivers can never purposefully injure a resident or use more force than is necessary. If this occurs, the caregiver and facility may be liable for abuse. We can hold caregivers and facilities responsible for incidents such as these.

Emotional Abuse

Nursing home abuse does not always involve inflicting physical harm. Residents have emotional needs; many of them are scared, lonely, and confused. Their caregivers have a duty not only to keep them physically safe and comfortable but also to tend to their emotional needs.

A caregiver who inflicts emotional harm on a resident is as guilty of abuse as one who inflicts physical harm. Examples of emotional abuse include threats, insults, manipulation, intimidation, isolation, and demeaning language.

If your loved one has suffered emotional abuse in a nursing home, we can hold the responsible party or parties liable.

Sexual Abuse

Sexual abuse refers to an unwanted or inappropriate sexual interaction. Remember that this can include actions or behaviors that do not involve physical contact, such as unwanted advances, crude comments, or obscene jokes.

Our Bowling Green nursing home abuse lawyers take the sexual abuse of older adults very seriously and will aggressively go after any party we find to be responsible for abusing your loved one.

Neglect

Nursing home caregivers have a duty to be diligent at all times about tending to residents’ myriad needs. These include feeding, bathing, dressing, administering medication, and many more.

Older adults relocate to nursing homes because they are unable to perform these tasks on their own, making them totally reliant on their caregivers in many cases. When a caregiver does not give a resident the care they need, it is neglect.
