Understanding Assault

While the assault of an elderly person in a nursing home may seem unfathomable, it is not uncommon. Abusive staff members can prey on the very people they are paid to take care of. Other times, one resident is assaulted by another. Either way, the nursing home can be held legally liable for failing to protect their residents. If you or a loved one has been the victim of assault while a resident of a nursing home, speak to an experienced Oklahoma City nursing home neglect attorney.

Assault includes the intent to inflict fear on another person. The following acts may be considered assault:

  • Verbal abuse

  • Emotional abuse

  • Threats

If your loved one was assaulted and feared for his or her safety while under the care of a nursing home, you may be entitled to compensation. As skilled attorneys in Oklahoma City and serving clients throughout the Oklahoma City Metro Area, we've focused our careers on medical malpractice law, and even have experience as defense attorneys for nursing home negligence cases. This means we have insight into the tactics that a defense team may use, which gives us a great advantage when it comes time to investigate, build, and negotiate your case. When you're ready to move forward, we'll be here to get you started with a free consultation.

Let us use our skills and experience to guide you through this difficult time; call us at (405) 673-2377 to get the help you need.

 

Common Causes of Falls & Fractures

Falls and fractures that are caused by negligence on the part of the nursing home staff are unacceptable but not uncommon. These accidents can be so severe that they lead to long-term injuries, health decline, and decreased quality of life. When you give your trust and money to a caregiver, certain measures must be taken to prevent accidents like slips and falls. If the fall does happen and was the result of a negligent staff member, you should seek the counsel of an experienced and aggressive attorney.

At Martin + Fielding, we've represented clients whose fractures were the result of the following:

  • Defective equipment

  • Untrained, incompetent, or inattentive staff

  • Inadequate safety measures in bathrooms

You deserve to get the compensation you need to recover from your fall and we have the experience to get you there. If you are ready to file a lawsuit, we are prepared to help.
