Honolulu Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Nursing Home Abuse Claims
When elderly persons are placed in nursing homes in Honolulu, it's because they can no longer care for themselves. Professional nursing home staff are entrusted to provide adequate care, help them maintain their dignity and keep them safe. Unfortunately, nursing homes sometimes fail in their responsibility to care for and keep residents safe. Abuse occurs and it is not only reprehensible, but could be considered a crime. If you have concerns that your elderly loved one has suffered abuse in a nursing home, you require the services of a Honolulu personal injury attorney. Our attorneys at the law firm of Bostwick & Peterson LLP have the resources and 60 years of experience to hold nursing homes accountable for their actions, and to fight for the rights of your loved one.
One of our most vulnerable populations is made up of elderly persons. They may have suffered from elder abuse prior to moving to a nursing home, and may be unable or afraid to speak up about abuse they are enduring in their nursing home. If you have reason to believe that your loved one is suffering from physical injury, sexual assault, verbal intimidation, restraint by medication or physical means not authorized by a doctor, theft of possessions, financial swindling or negligence in a nursing home, you have an obligation to speak up for them.
