In our society, it is a tragic fact that many elderly people are neglected or abused by nursing home employees. These victims often cannot speak out against the people who harm them. At Swartz & Swartz, P.C., our Boston injury lawyers have made it our mission to speak up for them, helping injured victims or their family members to seek justice after nursing home abuse occurs.

4 Steps You Should Take:

  1. Protect Your Loved One – Make sure you are there and actively present at the facility often. Schedule meetings with management and transfer
  2. Document – Document by email, make sure communications are saved and request records from the care facility.
  3. Report – Make sure report allegations of abuse to federal and state agencies. Retain an experienced attorney at the early stages to help with investigations
  4. Investigate – Make sure you are following up with your attorney and those agencies to make sure those investigations are being followed through.
