As many as 40 million people in the U.S. will live in nursing or assisted living homes by the year 2020.
The injuries perpetrated against our senior citizens in nursing homes come in many forms.
Many injuries are commonly caused by neglect, including lack of supervision or improper care.
Other injuries can result out of physical or sexual abuse or mental cruelty.
Our New York and Connecticut nursing home neglect lawyers know what a difficult and personal decision it is to entrust the care of your loved one to a nursing home or assisted living facility.
That is why it is especially heinous when the nursing home creates conditions which are dangerous and/or degrading to your loved one.
According to a recent study by the U.S. Census, one out of every three nursing homes in the U.S. has been cited for serious nursing home violations in the past.Typical Warning Signs
Some victims of nursing home abuse will speak out.
However, other seniors who have been abused at assisted living facilities or nursing homes may be unable to speak or to express themselves properly.
Some elders may be too ashamed to speak up about the abuse they have endured.
