Nursing Home Abuse

California Elder Abuse Attorneys

Like any health care facilities, nursing homes must provide residents with a certain level of medical care. In many instances, the maltreatment of nursing home residents rises to the level of elder abuse and entitles the resident or his or her family to additional damages not available in the typical malpractice case. If you or someone you love has suffered serious injuries as a result of maltreatment in a nursing home, you may have a claim elder abuse.

At McTernan, Stender & Weingus, we work to protect the rights of nursing home abuse and malpractice victims. From bed sores, to dehydration or neglect, we can help you obtain fair compensation for the abuse you or your loved one has sustained. While most common in nursing homes, elder abuse can also occur in other facilities, such as "board and care" homes and even hospitals.

A Track Record of Success

At McTernan, Stender & Weingus, we represent elderly clients and their families throughout California with claims against nursing homes, hospitals and other facilities. From malnutrition and dehydration as the result of neglect to severe wounds from assault, unreasonable physical restraint, isolation, or sexual abuse, we believe it is important to stand up for individuals who cannot stand up for themselves.

If we accept your case, we will work with experts and conduct a thorough investigation into your claim. Evaluating all your options, we will make sure you do everything possible to maximize your claim.

One of the most difficult aspects of elder abuse and malpractice is that the elderly often fail or refuse to report any wrongdoing. It can be difficult for family members to recognize signs of abuse, but if you believe that some wrongdoing has taken place, you want to take action before conditions have the chance to because worse.
