Exploitation of a Nursing Home Resident
Exploitation takes place when an individual misuses a resident’s personal property or funds for his or her own benefit. Often this is done without the owner’s consent, through threats, coercion, deception or undue influence. Thus, the resident is taken advantage of.

Nursing Home Abuse Injuries
Nursing home neglect can subject vulnerable adults to serious injury and death caused by:
- Decubitus ulcers
- Over-medication or under-medication
- Transfer injuries
- Wandering off
- Improper use of restraints
At Bohrer Brady LLC, we have the experience and the network of experts necessary to evaluate your case and hold nursing homes and medical professionals accountable for their neglect. We also seek claims against nursing homes for common mistakes, such as the failure to train and supervise staff, medication errors, insufficient staffing or pharmacy mistakes. We take no excuses for improper and negligent care of nursing home residents.
Physical, Emotional and Sexual Assaults
Elder abuse in the form of physical, emotional or sexual assaults on nursing home residents by other residents, staff or visitors is one of the most emotional cases we handle. An innocent person subjected to this abuse can become withdrawn, and sadly, many times these cases are never reported. Such attacks on the vulnerable and elderly are reprehensible; we will work to ensure that the responsible parties are held accountable.
If a family member has been seriously injured or even killed because of nursing home negligence, tell us about it. It costs you nothing to talk to our personal injury lawyers about your nursing home negligence case. We can help you understand the laws and your rights. You do not have to face a doctor, hospital, or nursing home alone.
