Helping Victims Of Elderly Care Abuse And Medical Malpractice

Nearly every health care professional performs their job to the best of their ability, providing useful care, prescribing the right medication and saving the lives of the injured or infirm. However, they are still human and are capable of making mistakes. There can be instances of poor judgment that makes matters worse or consciously unethical choices. Fortunately, patients and their families have legal recourse.

With an office in Fort Mitchell but serving the state of Kentucky, The Law Firm of Donald L. Nageleisen P.L.L.C. has extensive experience working with victims of medical malpractice or elder care abuse as well as their families. Regardless of the situation, we sit down and listen to our clients' needs and legal goals, and then conduct our own investigation to help build a strong case for you.

Common Medical Errors You May Experience

We understand that each case is unique, and have vast experience and knowledge to draw upon to determine the best course of action. Typically, malpractice matters we help with include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Surgical error
  • Unauthorized treatment
  • Medication error
  • Hospital negligence

Issues Specific To The Elderly

While the elderly can be the victim in any of the above situations, there are issues specific to the special care they need and receive because of their limited physical or mental capacity. These include:

  • Theft of money or unauthorized credit card use
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Personal hygiene is not maintained
  • Living space is not kept clean

Because the elderly may not even be aware that they are abused, it is critical for loved ones to look for signs of the above issues by monitoring the care in a facility or the care provided at home, and to monitor finances to make sure caregivers do not take advantage of your loved one.
