Here to help with your nursing home neglect case.

The consequences of nursing home abuse

Staff members often keep abuse quiet. Victims frequently do not report abuse because they fear retaliation or social isolation. The abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional or financial.

Abusers see nursing home residents as easy victims. The abusers could be employees, visitors or other residents. In many cases, nursing home workers are unable to put a stop to the abuse, because they are overworked, underpaid and poorly trained.

Some potential signs of nursing home abuse include:

  • Bruises, cuts, burns or fractures
  • Fear of visitors or of being alone
  • Unexplained crying
  • Unrecognized names on paperwork
  • Loss of money or possessions
  • Unsanitary living conditions

Nursing home and elder abuse is against federal and state law. At Stipe Harper, we relentlessly research the facts in the case and determine who is liable. We do not rest until your loved one is safe.

Oklahoma nursing home abuse lawyers who pursue justice on your behalf

The safety of your loved one is not enough. The justice system holds the liable parties accountable for their actions. Our nursing home attorneys seek compensation for damages, including:

  • Wrongful death. If it is found that a nursing home resident died due to abuse, our lawyers file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the family.
  • Medical expenses. Many victims require additional medical attention due to abuse. We pursue the compensation necessary to cover these medical costs.
  • Pain and suffering. The abuse likely caused significant physical and emotional stress on the victim and on the family as well. We seek damages to compensate pain and suffering.

Our Oklahoma nursing home lawyers are committed to bringing victims of nursing home abuse to safety. Our experience gives us an edge in the legal proceedings involved in the case.
