Elder and Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys in Phoenix, Arizona
Elder abuse can be caused by a multitude of things such as negligence or mistreatment in a local Phoenix nursing home. The main purpose that adult children or friends use a nursing home is so the nursing home employees will care for the well being of their parents or elders. Elder abuse can potentially cause an elderly person pain, suffering, and/or permanent emotional and physical damage.
Elder Abuse Prevention
It is the duty and obligation of a Phoenix nursing home to ensure the safety of all elders. The following are a couple necessary actions a nursing home should take in order to prevent elder abuse.
- In order to prevent elder mistreatment and neglect, the nursing home should perform background checks, for any previous criminal activity, on all of the employees it intends to hire.
- The employees should be knowledgeable on the handling and caring of elders.
- In order to promote elder abuse protection, the nursing home also needs to be conscious and aware of its employees and their actions around elders.
If caution and awareness are not a nursing home's main priorities, then elder abuse will likely ensue.
We are able to resolve the overwhelming majority of our cases relatively promptly and without ever having to go to court.

When that occurs, our office will thoroughly explain the litigation process, including the risks, benefits, and how it relates to your case before we file litigation.
