Deciding to place your parent or grandparent in a nursing home or assisted living facility is one of the most difficult decisions that you will make. You put your trust in a nursing home to provide the best care for your loved one, but a few nursing homes break this trust. They mistreat elderly people and violate all the rules and regulations.
Tune into your local news or scan your newspaper, and you will see countless stories of heartbreaking elder abuse. According to FHA, “research suggests that 700,000 to 1.2 million elderly people are subject to elder mistreatment in the United States and that there are 450,000 new cases annually.”
If you believe that your elderly loved one has suffered abuse, then contact the attorneys at The Cochran Firm Atlanta today.
You may have a case if your loved one was harmed and suffered injury because of nursing home abuse. You can then file a case and seek justice.
