My elderly mother was sexually abused by another resident at her nursing home. Do I have a legal claim against the nursing home or just the other resident?

Your mother should have a nursing home abuse lawsuit against the facility on her hands. We are sorry to hear that she has been sexually abused, but are glad to hear that you are speaking up on her behalf and making sure justice is served.

When you entrust your mother to a nursing home, you trust that nursing home to take care of her and keep her safe. Additionally, all residents have certain rights, such as the right to be free from abuse while living in a nursing home. When nursing homes fail to protect their residents and deny them their human rights, it is grounds for a nursing home abuse case.

To learn more about filing a claim against a nursing home and how to go about seeking justice and just compensation for your elderly mother, contact the Law Offices of David Benenfeld to have a skilled Fort Lauderdale nursing home abuse attorney provide you with a free legal evaluation of your case.
