Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

An Indiana law firm that fights for families

If your loved one was injured in a nursing home, you know you need to do something about it. But you may not know what to do next. You trusted your loved one's nursing home to take care of them. Now, you're probably feeling confused and overwhelmed.

A nursing home abuse attorney at Boughter Sinak, LLC can help you every step of the way. We're proud to stand up for families in Fort Wayne, South Bend and throughout Indiana when they're victims of abuse and neglect in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. We understand the impact of nursing home negligence, and we're here to help.

Holding nursing homes accountable for abuse and neglect

Nursing homes are held to a high legal standard because they are entrusted with caring of some of society's most vulnerable people. Many residents are unable to care for themselves and may not be able to communicate or advocate for themselves. Sadly, some facilities do not meet that standard of care and take advantage of the people living there.

We handle all cases arising from nursing home abuse and neglect, including:

  • Medical neglect
  • Personal hygiene neglect
  • Basic needs neglect
  • Emotional neglect
  • Physical abuse
  • Mental and emotional abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial exploitation

If you believe your loved one has been abused or neglected in an Indiana nursing home, your first step should be to make sure they're safe. You need to report the abuse or neglect to the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) and, if you believe a crime has been committed, contact your local police department. You then need to contact us so we can advocate for your family and thoroughly investigate your case.

We'll fight for your family from start to finish

Building a case against a nursing home isn't easy. Victims and witnesses may not be able to articulate or even remember what happened. And the nursing home itself may destroy records and other evidence, unless we intervene right away.

We can start an immediate investigation to get to the bottom of what happened and fight for justice for your loved one. We know how to build a strong case for the compensation your family needs and deserves. Our goal is to take care of your loved one's needs and hold negligent nursing homes accountable. In pursuit of that goal, we'll fight for your family in negotiations and at trial.

But your case is about more than just money. By taking legal action, your efforts will hopefully make a difference and make sure other Indiana families don't suffer a similar fate. Put your trust in a law firm that puts your family's needs first. Contact us online or give us a call at 1-877-962-4373 to schedule your free consultation.
