Were You or a Loved One Sexually Assaulted in a Nursing Home?
Those who require the greatest care are often the greatest targets for sexual abuse. When the depraved take advantage of the elderly, the disabled and the sick, it is crucial to make sure they are held accountable and that survivors are compensated for what they have been through and will continue to go through.
At Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney P.C., our lawyers have built a strong reputation as advocates for the survivors of sexual abuse in Connecticut. We are continually in awe of the courage our clients show in coming forward, which inspires us in our efforts to make sure it never happens again to anyone else.
A Dereliction of Duty
Nursing homes and staff members have a duty to make sure that their patients receive the care they need. Nursing home patients should be treated with dignity and respect, not subjected to abuse.
The patients of nursing homes are often easily taken advantage of because they struggle to communicate with others about what has happened. Due to issues such as overmedication in nursing homes, some patients are not even aware of what has happened to them. That is why it is so crucial for loved ones to pay close attention for the signs of abuse and to come forward if they suspect something is wrong.
