Nursing Home Abuse in Metairie, Louisiana

The fastest growing segment of the population in the United States is the elderly. Since more Americans are living longer, nursing homes are needed and relied upon by more and more families to care for our loved ones who can no longer care for themselves. Sadly, too many nursing homes have betrayed the trust we have placed in them. In some cases, the very people who were supposed to protect the vulnerable elderly are neglecting and abusing them. The Cochran Firm's Metairie, Louisiana attorneys stand ready to hear the details of your case if a loved one has suffered harm due to negligent or abusive care in a nursing facility.

Although victims of nursing home abuse often are unable to communicate instances of abuse, there are warning signs to alert family and friends of what is happening. Unexplained weight loss, loss of mobility, bedsores, bruises, cuts, broken bones, overmedication, unsanitary conditions, missing personal possessions or suspicious activity in financial accounts are all indicators of possible abuse.

Discovering a loved one has been a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect is devastating for family members, but it is important to realize there are laws that hold the abusers legally accountable.

The experienced nursing home abuse attorneys at The Cochran Firm have been protecting the rights of our clients for many years in this challenging and emotional area of the law. We will fight aggressively for those harmed by others and hold the abusers legally liable for their actions.

If you suspect a family member has been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect in the Metairie, Louisiana area, please contact the experienced nursing home abuse attorneys at The Cochran Firm today. Our Metairie, Louisiana attorneys work on a contingency basis, which means we do not get paid unless you are awarded a settlement or award by the judge and/or jury.
