Dedicated Advocates For Victims Of Elder Abuse In Nursing Homes By Staff
If a nursing home resident or close friend has suffered unexplained injuries, bedsores, a broken hip, or frequent falls and you are suspicious of elder abuse or nursing home negligence, you have legal options available. If the elder abuse led to mental incapacitation or death, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit and sue for damages.
At Leeseberg Tuttle, we take pride in fighting for our clients, who include victims and their family members. In many cases, loved ones or guardians notice signs of abuse or neglect, and then they come to our law firm to discuss their legal options and prove that abuse or neglect has occurred.
We thoroughly investigate each case we take on and prepare every case we handle as if it must go to trial for success. Most cases we handle settle outside of court without the need for litigation, but we are always prepared for trial to secure the full and fair compensation our clients deserve, if necessary.

What Is Nursing Home Neglect And Elder Abuse?
The abuse of seniors in nursing home care is often difficult to identify because the victim typically will not report it. Abuse or neglect may involve any of the following circumstances:
- Medication errors and misdiagnoses of health conditions
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Financial exploitation
- Physical abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Sexual abuse
Every year, an estimated 2.1 million older Americans are victims of physical, psychological or other forms of abuse and neglect. For every case of elder abuse and neglect reported to authorities, experts estimate that there may be as many as five cases not being reported.
