Residents at assisted living facilities often enter as proud, self-sufficient individuals. Abuse and neglect can strip a victim of their identity and agency and even cause lasting trauma that is difficult to overcome. Hughey Law Firm does everything in its power to right these tragic wrongs.
Our team will identify all damages your loved one has suffered—and any damages they may experience going forward.
Your loved one’s recoverable losses may include:
- Medical bills: If neglect or abuse causes injury to your loved one, they may face medical bills for related care. Liable parties, including any abuser or neglecter, should cover these costs.
- Pain and suffering: Pain and suffering may include distress, pain, and certain other symptoms of elder abuse.
- The cost of trauma-specific treatment: Your loved one may need treatment for the trauma they’ve endured. Any counseling, medication, or other treatment should have coverage by a civil case.
- Relocation expenses: Your loved one may choose to move out of Laurel Baye Healthcare of Williston, and nobody can blame them. The cost of relocating, including transportation and moving expenses, should be the liable party’s to pay.
- The cost of medical equipment: Our firm may get compensation for any medical equipment your loved one requires, especially if they did not require that equipment before being abused or neglected.
We approach each elder abuse case as an open book. We want to hear your loved one’s story and make a comprehensive record of their losses. Hughey Law Firm will not rest until we’ve fought for the compensation your loved one deserves.
