Northern California Elder Abuse Attorney & Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Welcome to Young & Wallin, the leading Northern California law firm dedicated exclusively to representing elder abuse and nursing home neglect victims.
Over 1.7 million elders in our country depend on nursing homes to provide them with the utmost in quality care, yet the number of elders who are victimized by nursing home abuse and neglect increases every day.
Experts estimate that 20% of nursing home neglect and abuse cases go unreported. Therefore, when one case of abuse or neglect is reported in a nursing home facility, there could be as many as five other cases not being reported. In such instances, there is often a pattern of neglect and abuse occurring against many residents in the facility.
If you suspect an elder nursing home resident is a victim of abuse, maltreatment or neglect, you need to contact an experienced Northern California Elder Abuse and Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer, immediately.
Young & Wallin are seasoned attorneys who diligently investigate every nursing home negligence case they handle by examining the nursing home facility’s history of any federal and state law violations and any evident deficiencies in staffing and staff training that might suggest there is a pattern of abuse within the nursing home.
Nursing home neglect and elder abuse can include physical and emotional abuse, sexual assault, insufficient mobility exercises and inappropriate use of restraints, financial abuse, isolation, adverse drug events, neglect, verbal intimidation and wrongful death.
If you or an elderly nursing home resident in your family experiences unexplained injuries or extreme behavior changes, bed pressure sores, a broken hip or frequent falls, and you suspect elder abuse or nursing home medical malpractice; you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit including a wrongful death claim if the elder abuse or neglect led to death.
