Sexual Abuse In Nursing Homes
Experienced Los Angeles Nursing Home Sexual Abuse Attorneys Fighting for Victims
Aggressive representation for nursing home sexual abuse victims across Southern California
In a nursing home environment, many patients are too weak to defend themselves against unwanted behaviors. Perpetrators see them as easy targets, which sometimes leads to acts of sexual abuse. At Taylor & Ring, our attorneys fight back on the behalf of sexual abuse victims. Based in Los Angeles, our lawyers are recognized as some of the top trial lawyers for plaintiffs throughout California. That is because we know how to get results when people are suffering due to another’s malicious or negligent conduct. In addition to holding nursing home staff accountable for sexual abuse, we will also take action against nursing home companies for allowing an environment where sick, cruel behavior can thrive.
Recognizing the signs of nursing home sexual abuse
Some residents cannot communicate to let other staff or family members know about abuse. Others are simply too scared to report abuse, fearing retribution from the offending staff member or being kicked out of the nursing home for making trouble. No resident should ever have to feel this way. Our experienced Los Angeles nursing home abuse attorneys act quickly to undertake a thorough investigation of the allegations. If you suspect sexual abuse, be on the lookout for warning signs like:
- Physical marks, such as bruises or scratches
- Your loved one becoming withdrawn or depressed
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Staff making unfounded allegations about your loved one being a problem
California has strict elder abuse laws to protect the residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities, and we will use them to keep your loved one safe, in addition to pursuing compensation for any suffering and medical needs.
Advocating for the rights of nursing home residents
California’s elder abuse law extends to adults of any age who are dependent on caregivers in acute care facilities, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, rehabilitation centers and hospitals. We proudly provide the weak and vulnerable with a voice against corporate nursing homes that fail to provide adequate standards of care. Allegations of sexual abuse are too serious to be ignored. Our capable Los Angeles nursing home sexual abuse law firm knows how to level the playing field against large nursing home companies that put profits ahead of residents’ wellbeing.
