North Dakota Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys Fight for the Rights of Elderly Residents
Holding nursing homes accountable for negligent care
Between 2010 and 2025, the number of adults aged 65 and older in North Dakota is reportedly expected to grow by 52%. At the Larson Law Firm P.C., we believe our elderly loved ones deserve the utmost compassion and dignity during their golden years. We do not hesitate to take on nursing homes and their staff members when they harm and injure the elderly residents who depend on them. Our legal team aggressively advocates for these victims as if they were our own family members.
Common warning signs of nursing home abuse
Far too many incidents of nursing home abuse and neglect go unreported. This is because abusive nursing home staffs depend on the victims and their families not taking a stand after unlawful behaviors have taken place. Our seasoned attorneys recognize how this disturbing pattern of behavior leads to severe injuries or wrongful deaths.
The signs of abuse may not always be obvious, because the human body becomes frailer over time. However, our experience in these cases enables us to distinguish between abuse and normal symptoms of aging. The most common warning signs of nursing home abuse or neglect taking place include:
- Choking on or vomiting of food
- Bruising or contusions
- Repeated falling
- Spreading of infections or illnesses
- Bed sores
- Burns or scalding
Elderly residents with some level of dementia are at a particularly high risk of being abused or neglected. If your loved one is complaining that he or she is being touched, has become withdrawn, or has begun lashing out, these could be signs of abuse. We take this very seriously, and will investigate thee types of claims and behaviors to root out the problem.
