Families Depend On Nursing Homes To Help Care For Their Loved Ones

When Assisted Living Care Fails And Your Loved One Is Hurt, Legal Action Should Be Taken

Americans' life expectancy has increased by nearly 10 years since the 1950s. Within 10 more years, the average American is expected to live more than 80 years.

No one argues about the benefits of having more time to enjoy with family and experience all that life has to offer. With an increase in senior population, however, comes an increase in the number of individuals who rely on assisted living services to help them with daily life. Families rely on these facilities to keep their loved ones safe, comfortable and healthy.

Unfortunately, nursing homes and other providers of assisted living services frequently betray and abuse the trust of the people you love. These victims are subjected to a wide range of abuse and neglect, including physical abuse, emotional abuse, falls, financial exploitation and mistakes regarding medication. These wrongful acts have lead to broken hips, bed sores and even death.

We Will Fight For Your Loved One To Get Compensation Following Nursing Home Neglect

Svalina Law Firm advocates on behalf of seniors in South Carolina and their families when neglect or abuse occurs. If it can be shown that a nursing home or its employees have acted negligently or maliciously, you can seek compensation for medical bills necessary to treat injuries, pain and suffering, disfigurement and disability, and punitive damages. A family needs an attorney when their loved one has been horribly affected because of this negligence.

We seek the maximum compensation available by law to hold offenders accountable. By taking legal action against a negligent assisted living services provider, you are helping to prevent other seniors and their families from being victimized as well.

Signs of abuse or neglect include:

  • Broken bones or fractured hips
  • Unexplained cuts, sores or bruises
  • Soiled clothing or bedding
  • Unexplained weight loss or loss of appetite
  • Unexplained behavior or a change in the personality of your loved one
  • Your loved one asks to move out of the facility
