Sadly, nursing home abuse is a growing area of the law. As our population ages, an increasing number of people are residing in assisted living facilities. More residents in such facilities lead to more instances of abuse and neglect. The Denton and Dallas nursing home abuse attorneys at our firm are very knowledgeable about this area of the law. If you believe that a loved one in a nursing home is being abused or neglected in some way, it is important to speak to an elder law attorney immediately. Contact the elder neglect lawyers at Haire Law Firm to discuss your concerns.
Elder neglect is the failure of a caregiver to take care of the physical, medical, or emotional needs of an elderly person. Such abuse may result from inadequate training or insufficient staffing. However, the facility operator is responsible for providing adequate care for residents. Poor training or insufficient staffing is not a defense against charges of elder abuse or negligence. Evidence of elder neglect or abuse in nursing homes may include bedsores, ulcers, fractures, malnutrition, dehydration, and unexplained bruises and injuries.
Nursing home abuse, unlike neglect, is almost always the result of deliberate mistreatment. Nursing home abuse can be physical, such as hitting, slapping, shaking, or inappropriate use of restraints. It can also be emotional, involving things like humiliation, yelling, and verbal insults. Additionally, abuse can include sexual abuse, dangerous forms of punishment, and taking advantage of residents financially. Sadly, it can even result in death.
The elderly are among our most vulnerable citizens. They can be lonely, afraid, confused, and unwilling to report instances of abuse and neglect. This is why it is critical for family members to be alert to signs of elder abuse and neglect. If you suspect that a loved one is being abused or neglected in any type of care facility for the elderly, contact a skilled elder law attorney right away.

The staff is so friendly & helpful. I really felt like they cared about me & I was not just a client or a number to them. They made me feel like family.
I had a landlord trying to screw me. Rocky fixed the problem for me then wouldn’t take my money. My attorney for life.
The other big firm I tried to hire didn’t call me back. I called Rocky and he was ON IT the same day. Then he totally won my case for me.
Rocky got me a great deal and called to tell me my check was ready. Awesome.
I am so grateful with this firm for their generosity and support all through my case.
Mr. Haire wouldn’t put up with their nonsense. Took my case to court and won big time!
Rocky is my bulldog.
I couldn’t believe how much money they got me!
The insurance adjustor ignored me until Mr. Haire got on board.
Rocky came to me because I couldn’t get off work. They said I should take the offer because it was high enough. They could’ve taken my money and didn’t. I’ll never go anywhere else.
I was surprised how much those guys knew about the law. They’re great.
Rocky was very efficient but meticulous in the handling of my case. He explained my rights thoroughly and kept me informed of all negotiations. I would highly recommend his services!
