Connecticut Nursing Home Injury Attorneys
A study recently released by the United States General Accounting Office has found that over 50 percent of suspicious nursing home deaths were tied to nursing home patient abuse and exploitation. While many of these deaths could have been prevented if the neglect had been discovered and reported at an earlier stage, it is an unfortunate fact that there are still many of these cases going unnoticed to this day. Nursing home abuse has been called the hidden crime because it can be difficult to recognize. There is often a combination of reasons why these cases often go unreported, but a common reason is simply that the victim feels ashamed or embarrassed about being taken advantage of. In some instances, victims may also be afraid to speak out for fear of retribution. With this in mind, it is important for relatives and loved ones to be conscious of the signs of nursing home abuse or neglect and to be able to report what they observe to their local Police department. If you or a loved one has been a victim of nursing home abuse, we can help. The team of attorneys at Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers are ready to fight for your rights and obtain any compensation benefit that you may be entitled to.
