Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers in North Carolina

Protecting the Rights of Our Clients & Their Families

Nursing homes are designed to protect and care for elderly individuals who are no longer able to care for themselves. Many offer a comfortable and semi-home environment to relax and treat the elderly with their healthcare problems. However, despite North Carolina’s Ombudsman Program, which is designed to promote and protect the rights of residents of long-term care facilities, it is not uncommon for nursing home abuse or neglect to occur. A proficient nursing home abuse lawyer in North Carlina can help.

Contact King Law Firm online or call us today at (800) 635-1683 to schedule a free consultation with one of our knowledgeable attorneys.

Fighting Against Nursing Home Abuse For Over 30 Years

Nursing Home Abuse Is More Common Than You Think

According to the National Elder Abuse Incidence Study, for every one case of elder exploitation, neglect, abuse, or self-neglect that is reported, there are five more that go unreported. Also, approximately 1.5 million Americans ages 65 and older have been exploited, injured, or otherwise mistreated by someone who provided them with care or protection.

Most causes of these abuses are from overworked, untrained staff members and nursing homes being understaffed. Although the federal Nursing Home Reform Law requires that all residents receive high-quality care, many nursing homes provide lesser care to residents whose care is paid for through Medicaid or by long-distance loved ones. You and your loved ones should be mindful and watch for signs that might indicate that an elderly family member or friend is being subjected to any issues of abuse or neglect.
