Los Angeles Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Fighting on behalf of your elderly loved ones.

Many of us will have to entrust the care of our elderly loved ones to a nursing home facility, whether it be because we cannot provide the round-the-clock care they need or lack the necessary skill set needed for their medical condition.

Unfortunately, not all nursing home facilities are staffed with professionals who are dedicated to making your loved one feel at home or keeping them healthy. Nursing home abuse and neglect is an epidemic in this country and affects millions of senior adults. At Levin & Nalbandyan, LLP, our Los Angeles nursing home abuse lawyers are committed to providing the legal assistance you need to obtain compensation and justice on behalf of your elderly loved one through a personal injury suit.


Nursing home abuse involves the intentional harm of an elderly resident. The harm that a nursing home resident suffers does not necessarily have to be physical; it can also be sexual, psychological, or financial. For example, if a nursing home staff took advantage of his or her access to a resident’s financial information and used it to pull money from an account, this could also be considered nursing home abuse.

Signs of nursing home abuse include:

  • Cuts and bruises
  • Broken bones and minor fractures
  • Dehydration
  • Severe mood swings
  • Isolating and refusing to speak
  • Weight loss that cannot be explained
  • Caregivers refuse to leave the resident alone with others

It is crucial to visit your elderly loved one as frequently as possible to observe any significant changes in his or her behavior and appearance.

Nursing home abuse can also come in the form of neglect. Many nursing homes are not adequately staffed and lack sufficient care for residents. As a result, many elderly patients do not receive enough food, lack proper hygiene, and develop skin infections or bed sores. Additionally, many residents in understaffed nursing homes are often left to fend for themselves and walk around the facility unattended, sometimes leading to fall accidents and serious injuries.

Signs of nursing home neglect include:

  • Pressure ulcers or bed sores
  • Dirty clothing and general lack of good hygiene
  • Injuries caused by falls
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Depression
  • Withdrawn behavior

If you observe any of the aforementioned signs of abuse or neglect in your elderly loved one, ask his or her doctors or nurses about it and seek a skilled Los Angeles attorney for further assistance.
