Physical and Sexual Abuse
As hard as it is for most of us to imagine, there are those who would abuse and physically assault vulnerable seniors living in nursing homes and assisted living environments. These terrible people may be frustrated by work or simply lack compassion for others. Regardless of why they do it, when it happens to someone you love, there is no excuse and nothing that can make it alright. While there are criminal laws that can be used to prosecute these despicable people, this doesn’t fix the harm that has been done.
Often, physical abuse can lead to psychological injuries, physical injuries, expensive hospitalizations, and more. For these things, a nursing home resident can seek financial compensation. If your loved one has been abused in a nursing home, call Crossroad Legal today. Our attorney has spent the majority of his career fighting for the rights of injured nursing home residents in Illinois. Call us 24/7 at (618) 515-5555.
Among all the disgusting and cruel things that people can do to a senior, sexual abuse is perhaps the worst. Nursing homes in Illinois are required to perform extensive background checks on employees. Likewise, they are supposed to have protections in place to properly supervise employees. There is never an excuse for sexual abuse of a nursing home resident.
If your loved one has been the victim or sexual assault, rape, harassment, or some other type of sex crime in an Illinois nursing home, call an attorney who will aggressively fight to seek compensation and hold the facility accountable.
