Are they safe? What really happened?
What are we going to do?
This isn’t what you expected and you hoped it would never happen. You put the health and welfare of a loved one in the hands of another, someone you trusted, and that trust was violated. The Baltimore and Maryland nursing home, assisted living facility or group home failed to live up to their word, and your family member has suffered from abuse, neglect or an act of negligence and was injured or killed.
You may be confused and angry, not only at the professional you trusted, but at yourself because you think you made the wrong decision. Don’t blame yourself. Find out who is responsible and make them accountable.
Individuals and family members who have been injured in Baltimore and Maryland nursing homes, assisted living facilities, group homes and by medical professionals aren’t alone. We’re here to support them. Attorney Roger Weinberg understands not only the legal issues involved in abuse, neglect and medical malpractice but also the emotions and practical needs of his clients.
If you or a family member are the victim of abuse or neglect at a nursing home, assisted living facility or group home, you don’t have to accept what the facility told you, believe their explanation and move on. You can take action.
Neglect, abuse or medical malpractice can lead to the death of a loved one. We help families cope with wrongful death cases by advising them of their rights and investigating why the family member died and who is responsible. Legal actions can be filed and pursued to seek compensation for family members and hopefully correct practices at a facility where a death needlessly occurred.
Abuse and neglect come in many forms and can result in a number of injuries:
Residents who are not mentally competent due to dementia or Alzheimer’s disease or who have difficulty communicating are especially at risk for abuse or neglect. They’re more vulnerable, and a staff member may feel it will be easier to get away with mistreatment if the resident won’t be believed or can’t identify their attacker.
