Elder Abuse Should Never Happen
Victims of nursing home abuse may not know what’s happening to them. They may be too weak or scared to speak out against the people harming them. That’s why it’s vital you act on any suspicions of nursing home abuse before it’s too late. Waiting to take action in a nursing home abuse case can have serious or even fatal consequences.
At the Slechter Law Firm, we work tirelessly on behalf of nursing home abuse victims. Serving people in Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana, our Louisville-based law firm knows how to tackle such serious allegations. We’re prepared to thoroughly investigate such claims and even go to trial if necessary to hold nursing homes accountable for their actions.

Nursing home abuse can include physical abuse, emotional/psychological abuse or sexual abuse. No matter what type of abuse you’re dealing with, you may notice signs of nursing home abuse and neglect. If you don’t notice any physical evidence of nursing home abuse, it’s probably better to act on your suspicions and contact the police. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Most of us imagine we can count on our loved ones to report any abusive actions by nursing home employees. The grim reality is four out of five cases of nursing home abuse go unreported. Victims of abuse in nursing homes may feel powerless or afraid to report the problem because they are so thoroughly dependent upon the care being provided by nursing home personnel.
The Elderly Deserve To Be Treated With Dignity
When they are entrusted to the paid care of professionals, the obligation extends beyond mere decency. They have a professional obligation to safeguard the well-being of the sick and the elderly in their care. Do not let abusive nursing home employees avoid facing justice for their harmful actions. Take action.
