Nursing Home Injuries in California

Making the decision to allow someone else to care for your loved one is difficult for any family. While many understand that they cannot provide the level of care and attention their loved one deserves, there can be an inherent distrust in nursing home facilities due to the frequent stories of abuse and neglect cases throughout the state of California and across the United States.

The elderly population has steadily grown in number and they are among the most vulnerable due to their special needs. Once you are made aware that your loved one is not receiving the care and attention he or she deserves, prompt action is necessary. The attorneys at Joshua W Glotzer, APC are ready to assist you in obtaining relief for your loved one. For a no-risk initial consultation, contact us today.

Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing home neglect occurs when a nursing home resident does not receive proper medical, physical, or emotional attention. In many cases, nursing home neglect victims will experience physical or emotional consequences. If your loved one is in a nursing home that is not providing the proper level of care, you may be entitled to relief. Nursing homes have a duty to conform to the proper standard of care that will meet the healthcare needs of your loved one. If the nursing home fails to meet the required standard of care and causes your loved one’s injuries, your family may be able to obtain monetary compensation for those injuries.

Nursing home neglect cases are tricky. Oftentimes, elderly residents are not able to communicate that they are not receiving proper care. While some may be able to seek relief by voicing their concerns to management at the nursing facility, concerns are often met with resistance and evasive answers. It is important to immediately obtain the assistance of an experienced attorney at Glotzer & Leib, LLP if you suspect that your loved one has been injured by a nursing home center’s carelessness.

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

Since victims do not readily show signs of abuse, so it is important to look for signs of abuse whenever you spend time with your loved one. Some common signs of nursing home abuse include:

  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Bruising, cuts or welts
  • Bed sores
  • Frequent infections
  • Dehydration
  • Mood swings or emotional behaviors
  • Refusal to speak
  • Refusal to eat or take medications

    “Mr. Glotzer represented me after I was involved in a car accident. I was badly injured,but the insurance company refused to offer me a reasonable settlement. I decided to find an attorney and decided to hire Josh.

    His law firm did a great job on my case. They were very responsive to all my questions and obtained a great resolution for me. I received way more money than was originally offered. I would recommend their firm to friends and family.”

    “Don’t try to deal with insurance companies on your own. They strung me along for almost two years before I gave the case to Glotzer & Leib. Josh and his team quickly obtained a settlement that netted me many times what the insurance company was offering. Thank You!”
