Danbury Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Has your loved one been the victim of nursing home abuse?
Nursing homes have the duty to protect their wards, offering them the care and respect they need. Anyone placed in a nursing home, whether elderly or incapacitated, is entitled to be treated with dignity and appropriate medical treatment. When a nursing home fails to do so, they can be held liable for any failure to take care of their patients, or for actual abuse inflicted upon them. A Danbury personal injury lawyer from the Law Office of Jowdy & Jowdy can assist you in pursuing the nursing home against any damages they may have committed against your loved one.
Some forms that neglect and abuse of patients can take include:
- Bed sores
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Improper nutrition
When your loved one is facing mistreatment and harm, the nursing home must be held accountable for their actions. Your personal injury legal representative can ensure their negligence is brought to light and appropriate legal action taken to protect them.

Let the attorneys from the firm enable you to take proactive measures to protect your family members or pursue compensation for any harm done to them. This can include the cost of additional medical treatment as well as for any pain and emotional suffering they may have endured due to the abuse.
