Worried that your loved one is suffering at the hands of their nursing home’s staff? Call a South Carolina attorney to protect your family member from nursing home abuse.

When you’re unable to give your loved ones the full support they need at home, a nursing home may be the best option for you and your family. Unfortunately, not everyone is as concerned with your loved one’s safety. Sadly, they may have neglected them or even actively harmed them while your elderly loved one was in their care.

That’s devastating to learn, and it can be deadly for your family member. That’s why it’s so important to contact a South Carolina nursing home abuse lawyer right away. Your loved one needs help recovering, and they deserve justice for the suffering they’ve been through. Contact HawkLaw, PA for help getting your family member the support they need for recovery.

Types of Nursing Home Abuse

If you suspect that your loved one may be being abused by the nursing home, you’ll need to know the signs and the types of abuse. When you’ve gathered evidence, this can help you show that the staff harmed your family member.

If you’ve noticed any of these signs, notify the police and your South Carolina attorney right away:

  • Physical Abuse – If the staff was physically violent with a patient, you may see signs of hitting, kicking, punching, or other physical injuries.
  • Neglect – In some cases, the staff may outright ignore their patients. Soiled clothing, unusually unkempt appearances, and weight loss can all point to neglect.
  • Emotional Abuse – Not all abuse is physical. The staff may have yelled at, threatened, or otherwise frightened your loved one, leaving them afraid to seek help.

Compensation for South Carolina Families

Once your loved one is out of their dangerous situation, you’ll need to think about getting the compensation them they deserve. That compensation can help them recover and find a better living situation, so you and your attorney should focus on getting their economic and non-economic damages determined.

Typically, the major difference between these types of damages is whether the damages involved money or not.

For example, your loved one may have suffered serious injuries, like broken bones, for example, that will require medical care. Those hospital bills are economic damages. However, the intangible emotional damage they’ve suffered because of the staff are non-economic damages, and you may need a lawyer who can help you calculate those damages.
