Elder abuse in nursing homes is beyond commonplace. It’s almost the norm. We need to be vigilant in observing our loved ones who reside in nursing homes, and we need to be able to recognize the signs of nursing home abuse.

If we suspect elder abuse in a nursing home, we must act. We must know how to file at complaint of abuse, and then we need to speak with an attorney who specializes in elder abuse law.

We at the Consumer Justice Group have elder abuse lawyers throughout America, who are experts at navigating the complicated world of elder law. Nursing homes are often owned by huge corporations with deep pockets. Without an attorney who is specialized in fighting these giants, you may not be able to overcome their virtually infinite resources.

These big corporations pay out huge settlements all the time. Money is nothing to them. There was recently a $42 million settlement for an elder abuse case that led to the death of a nursing home resident.
