Accused of mistreating a resident? Protect your good name with help from a nursing home abuse attorney in Long Beach CA.
With the aging of the Baby Boomer generation, for the first time in our country’s history individuals 65 and over have topped 13 percent of the population. Many of these individuals will need some amount of nursing home care, whether they become a permanent resident or need short term care while recovering from an injury or illness. The nursing home industry is already overburdened and unstaffed, a condition that has led to an “epidemic” of nursing home abuse. More residents will most likely mean even more complaints.
If you have chosen to dedicate your life to caring for our nation’s elders, it is important not to let unfounded allegations of abuse interfere with this activity. Don’t leave your reputation and your livelihood in the hands of a public defender! Instead, secure expert representation by retaining Chambers Law Firm as your nursing home abuse attorney in Long Beach CA.
Expert Defense for All Types of Abuse Charges
Many different actions can fall under the category of nursing home abuse, including:
- Physical abuse
- Neglect and endangerment
- Emotional and psychological abuse
- Sexual abuse
Dan E. Chambers prides himself on being an aggressive nursing home abuse attorney in Long Beach CA who will work hard to build a strong defense against charges for any type of abuse. He will not shy away from pursuing a challenging legal strategy if that provides the best possible chance of a favorable resolution to your case, but instead will work hard to gather the necessary evidence. In addition to securing evidence to support your position, he will also make a point of looking for evidence and arguments that will undermine the prosecution’s position, thus creating a two-pronged approach for your defense.
Accident or Abuse?
When nursing home residents cannot speak for themselves due to physical or mental problems, there arises a very real possibility for well-meaning family members to suspect abuse where there is none. For example, perhaps a resident has a bruise on their face. Such an injury doesn’t necessarily indicate abuse, no matter what concerned family members may believe. Your nursing home abuse attorney in Long Beach CA can help clear up the situation using the testimony of expert witnesses who can examine the evidence relating to the injury and say whether it is more likely to have been caused by an accident or abuse.
