Nursing Home Abuse & Elder Abuse
Nursing home abuse is unfortunately one of the least reported crimes. Many nursing homes are grossly understaffed as big corporations cut costs to make a buck. Reduced staffs are being expected to maintain the same workload, which means more of our elderly are being neglected every day. The safety of your loved one should not be put at risk due to corporate greed.

This is why Tapalian Law fights for the rights of victims of nursing home abuse or elder neglect. Nursing home abuse can take on many forms, some obvious, others not. Some of the most common forms of nursing home abuse we see include:
- Physical Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
- Improper or Inadequate Hygiene
- Incorrect Medication or Dosage
- Wrongful Restraint (to a bed or room)
- Fraud, Extortion or Coercion
- Bed Sores
Nursing homes and care homes are places to receive care, not abuse. Victims of nursing home abuse are entitled to financial compensation from individuals or groups (corporations) that cause them harm. This includes a staff member or relative using scare tactics or intimidation to take advantage of Power of Attorney privilege. We believe victims deserve compensation for what they’ve been put through and we will not back down from a fight.Why Should You Hire an Injury Attorney for Nursing Home Abuse?
