Do You Have a Nursing Home Abuse Case

Before filing a claim, it is important to make sure you have a case for nursing home abuse. A lawyer will be able to help you determine if your case is legitimate and a claim can be filed. Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and financial abuse. 

At Beltz & Beltz, our attorneys know what signs to look for which may indicate nursing home abuse. Some of the most common signs of nursing home abuse include, but are not limited to, broken or fractured bones, frequent bruising, bedsores, frequent infections, emotional outbursts, reclusiveness, unexplained weight loss, caregivers that do not want to leave patients alone with others, and more. 

Costs of a Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

When researching lawyers for your nursing home abuse case, it is important to know exactly what you will be paying for. Are there consultation fees? Will you be paying money upfront, or after the settlement or trial is over? Will you be paying a flat fee, or does your lawyer charge hourly?

At Beltz & Beltz, our attorneys will provide you with a free and confidential consultation, and we guarantee that there are no costs or fees unless you win.
