Taking Action After Acts Of Nursing Home Abuse

People who live in nursing homes are especially vulnerable. When staff members abuse the people they are supposed to care for, it is an intentional act that has no place in a civilized society. If you have witnessed abuse, if your loved one is telling he or she is being abused, or if you see signs of abuse, it is important to act decisively. A lawyer will be a critical ally.

I am Modesto attorney David M. Jamieson. Since 1997, I have devoted my career to helping victims of elder abuse and neglect. My law firm has been a powerful resource for families across the Central Valley, throughout California and beyond. My law firm represents people in the aftermath of any type of nursing home abuse, including:

  • Physical abuse, which could include hitting, pushing or unnecessarily restraining someone
  • Emotional abuse, which could include threatening, yelling at or making demeaning comments toward someone
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial abuse, which could involve fraud, misrepresentation, forgery or undue influence

Whatever the act, I am ready to help your family recover all available compensation under the law.

Nursing Homes Are Responsible For The Acts Of Their Staff

When nursing home staff members commit acts of abuse, the entire facility must be held to account. Nursing homes are responsible for adequately training and monitoring their employees. Further, these facilities must take appropriate measures when screening new hires.

If there is evidence that your loved one was abused, my staff and I will conduct a comprehensive investigation. We will work relentlessly to prove exactly how your loved one was abused, and how the nursing home failed to protect him or her. With almost two decades of experience handling these types of cases, I know how to put my clients in a position to achieve a successful outcome.
