Protection From Nursing Home Neglect And Abuse

As family members age, transitioning to a nursing home's care may be the best option for their emotional and physical well-being. Unfortunately, an unacceptable number of New Mexico's elderly residents experience either neglect or abuse within care facilities each year. This can result from a number of factors, including understaffed facilities, poorly trained employees, violent employees or lack of resident supervision. Regardless of the cause, neglect or abuse of any kind is unacceptable.

Allegra-Law, LLC, strongly represents the rights of nursing home residents and helps them discover the justice they deserve. We also help families file wrongful death claims if they lose a loved one due to a facility's lack of care or malicious abuse.

Strong Representation To Defend The Elderly

You should be able to trust that your loved one is receiving adequate care at the nursing home of your choosing. If the facility is not providing appropriate care, our firm can strongly pursue just compensation after instances involving:

  • Bed sores
  • Dehydration
  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Lack of supervision
  • Lack of medical care
  • Malnutrition
  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Unsanitary living conditions

If you suspect that your loved one experiences one of the above conditions, read our page on recognizing signs of neglect or abuse for more information. It is important to reach out to an experienced lawyer for representation if they are neglected or abused. Asserting their right to proper care protects their health as well as the health of all other residents at the facility.
