Nursing home abuse is a terrible act of inhumanity that is being performed across the United States. Many times the victims are too frightened or weak to speak out against their abusers who physically and psychologically harm them. Victims of elder abuse or nursing home negligence can count on the expert legal representation of Kirk Bernard & the Bernard Law Group.
The Bernard Law Group has been representing the victims of nursing home neglect and nursing home abuse in Washington and for years. Our team of devoted lawyers represents those persons who have suffered monetary loss, serious injury, personal loss and future damages due to negligence, including, but not limited to, motor vehicle accidents, product liability, defective product accidents, construction accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical negligence, nursing home abuse and elder neglect.
Since that advent of safety features like the airbag, antilock brakes and automated stability control, one might assume that we collectively would be driving safer. But amazingly, we’re not! This might be because these “bells and whistles” give drivers an enhanced sense of safety on the road, so they overcompensate by being more aggressive and risk prone, thus blunting the potentially helpful effects of those safety technologies.
Presently, over 100,000 people reside in nursing homes in the state of Washington. Reports of nursing home abuse and neglect have unfortunately escalated in the past decade. Residents of nursing homes are often harmed by their care providers in many ways including manipulation, humiliation, physical abuse, verbal abuseand sexual abuse. In the U.S. over 5,000 nursing homes were cited for abuse violations in a recent 2 year period. That accounts for over 30% of the United State’s nursing homes.
