Our Lawyers Fight Nursing Home Abuse In Wisconsin And Minnesota

Stand Up For Your Loved Ones And Protect Their Well-Being

When you have a loved one in a nursing home or other health care facility, nothing is more important than his or her health and well-being. If you start to see signs – such as bedsores, bruises, cuts and weight loss – that your loved one is being abused or neglected, what can you do?

You Must Take Immediate, Decisive Action

The most important thing you can do is to act right away. It is important to take action quickly, as most nursing home residents cannot care for themselves when they are injured. Often, residents are elderly individuals or vulnerable adults who are not able to seek independent medical attention for their injuries.

Many nursing home residents may have compromised immune systems and they could be at a very high risk of developing life-threatening infections or illnesses. Additionally, injury victims at nursing homes or similar facilities may be unaware of their injuries or even afraid and often unable to report them.

We Have Experience In Nursing Home Abuse Cases, So We Know Exactly How To Help You And Your Family

At Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, our attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of personal injury victims across Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota. We have the experience and resources to effectively:

  • Investigate claims of abuse.
  • Gather the evidence necessary to build a strong claim.
  • Navigate the complex provisions of Wisconsin law that can affect nursing home claims.
  • Stand up to nursing facilities and large medical entities when they deny responsibility or attempt to sweep a situation “under the rug.”
  • Protect the interests of your loved one from day one all the way through trial, if trial becomes necessary.

We handle cases involving not only nursing homes but also assisted living facilities, group homes, home health care agencies and independent living facilities. We can address immediate safety concerns, as well as seek compensation for added long-term costs and all other damages that are the result of the neglect or abuse that your loved one has suffered.

Seeking Justice Against All Forms Of Abuse And Neglect

We represent people who have suffered a wide range of serious nursing home injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Malnutrition
  • Bedsores
  • Illness or infection caused by delayed treatment or diagnosis
  • Sexual assault
  • Brain injuries from falls
  • Medication error
  • Failure to properly treat wounds
  • Injuries caused by nursing home staff members, residents or visitors
  • Dehydration
  • Sepsis
  • Injuries caused by restraints

These physical injuries are often complicated by components of emotional abuse (such as repeatedly shouting at a resident or calling him or her derogatory names) or financial abuse (such as a nursing home obtaining control of a resident’s finances and improperly spending the money on needless services). Our firm has a proven record of successfully protecting the rights of those who have suffered serious injuries.

Was Your Loved One Hurt While Wandering?

A situation that is unfortunately common involves a resident wandering from a nursing home – often due to confusion that is the result of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or other degenerative conditions – and being injured. This type of wandering away is often called elopement. If your loved one has been injured in this kind of situation, you may be able to take action against the nursing home that was negligent in supervising him or her and allowed the wandering to occur.
