Do you have a case?
Nursing home abuse is a serious breach of trust. We treat it that way.
Facing The Facts
According to a study conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO), one in five nursing home residents will experience abuse.
According to a study completed by the National Center on Elder Abuse, psychological and emotional abuse is the most common form that will take place in a nursing home.
According to the National Council on Aging, elders are more likely to self-report financial abuse than any of the other forms. However, it’s still reported that a shocking $2.6 billion is lost each year by residents due to financial abuse.
Nursing home abuse incidents are a large problem that robs seniors of their dignity, security, and trust. The attorneys at Montlick will fight to ensure you or your loved ones receive fair compensation.
