Attorneys For Victims Of Sexual Abuse In Nursing Homes
People are placed in nursing homes when they are no longer able to adequately care for themselves. Tragically, certain individuals will prey on this vulnerability, and commit shocking acts of sexual abuse or physical abuse against nursing home residents. These actions are unconscionable.

How Does Nursing Home Sexual Abuse Happen?
In nursing homes, the perpetrators of sexual abuse are usually nursing home staff or other residents. In each case, this abuse is allowed to happen when nursing homes fail to take adequate measures to screen and monitor employees or residents. This failure allows very dangerous people to gain access to helpless residents.
We will carefully examine all the facts of your case to determine what happened and who was at fault. Our attorneys are focused on helping your loved one obtain compensation and peace of mind, as well as protecting others from being subjected to this abuse in the future.
