Tucson Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

950 Reviews

Trusting a nursing home with your loved one can be difficult no matter what reputation a facility may have. Although many assisted living centers offer safety, security, and quality medical care to their residents, some do not.

Nursing home staff personnel around the country, including in Arizona, are regularly charged with abusing patients physically, sexually, and emotionally. In some cases, abuse involves gross neglect, but other situations involve active abuse on the part of caretakers.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of abuse at a nursing home or assisted living facility, the Tucson injury attorneys at Zinda Law Group can help. Call us today at (800) 863-5312 for a free consultation with one of our Tucson nursing home abuse lawyers.

There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into Zinda Law Group we knew we were covered.

I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.

How to Prevent Nursing Home Abuse

You can do a number of things to make it less likely that your loved one will suffer abuse in a nursing home. First, be sure to tour any nursing home that you are considering. Look harder than they might expect, speaking to current residents as well as families about their experiences there. Research the nursing home’s history by finding out how long it has been in business and digging for any state reports on the facility. Stay vigilant for possible signs of neglect, such as low staff-to-patient ratio, use of restraints, cluttered hallways and overfilled trash cans. Finally, ask if the facility restricts visiting hours in order to determine whether staff could be hiding anything.

Unfortunately, abuse may still occur even after you have investigated a facility and placed your elderly loved one there. If you are not happy with your loved one’s treatment and are not satisfied with the staff’s performance as caretakers, consider speaking with a lawyer. You may be able to file a claim on the resident’s behalf even if he or she has passed away since the abuse occurred.
