Nursing Home Abuse in New Orleans, Louisiana

As the population of the United States grows older, the needs of vulnerable elderly people increase. Likewise, the instances of abuse and neglect in nursing homes and assisted living facilities are increasing. More and more aging citizens are finding themselves the victims of verbal, emotional, physical, sexual, and financial abuse in nursing care facilities that have been entrusted with their care by unsuspecting families. The New Orleans, Louisiana Cochran Firm nursing home abuse attorneys will fight to get you and your family the compensation you deserve if your loved one was harmed or died due to negligent or abusive care in a nursing home.
Common signs of negligence and abuse in nursing care facilities include:

  • Poor personal care involving bathing, toileting and feeding
  • Signs of chronic sores and infections
  • Unexplained bruising
  • The heavy use of medication to sedate
