Nursing Home Abuse in Ohio

Representation Backed by 20+ Years' Experience

Numerous pieces of legislature exist to protect elderly citizens as they lose the ability to protect themselves. Despite these laws, life for many seniors is anything but golden. Nursing home abuse is one of the most unreported crimes in the nation, as those who are experiencing it are often unable to report it or do anything to fix this serious problem.

At Lonas, McGonegal, Tsangeos & Struhar, we believe that the voiceless should be given a voice. For over 20 years, it has been our privilege to help families give their elderly loved ones the quality of life they deserve. Our Summit County nursing home abuse lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in awards for clients and we believe that our legal representation can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.

What are the different forms of elder abuse?

As people age, they become frailer and more susceptible to being taken advantage of. The unfortunate truth is that nursing home abuse is due in large part to this sense of frailness. Although different in every case, there are broad categories that are common in most elderly abuse cases.

The following forms of nursing home abuse are most customary:

  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Neglect
  • Financial abuse

Many nursing homes are understaffed, which can lead to problems of neglect and mistreatment. Residents may develop untreated bedsores or be confined to their room due to a shortage of supervision.

In other cases, financial exploitation can occur. Some caregivers may use their position of authority to take an elderly citizen's money for their own or participate in identity theft. Being aware of what is going on in your loved one's life is half the battle in preventing nursing home abuse.
