Marietta, GA Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Lawyer Attorney

By: Casey W. Stevens

Casey Stevens Represents Victims of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect all Over North Georgia

When your circumstances require that you have someone else care for your elderly or disabled loved one, your expectations are that their basic physical, medical, and emotional needs will be met without question. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When a facility denies these needs, or supplies them in such a way that belittles or demeans the patient, then the patient becomes a victim. If you suspect that your loved one has been a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, a personal injury attorney like Casey Stevens can help you understand your rights under Georgia law.

Abuse can be physical, emotional, or sexual but the most common form of abuse is neglect. Failure to provide basic, necessary, medical care, hygiene, food, and social interaction are all considered abuse under Georgia statutes. Abuse or neglect in any form is unacceptable and should be reported to the facility immediately. Sadly, in some cases, the facility may be aware of the abuse. These facilities are required to carry medical malpractice insurance to cover neglect and abuse claims, and there are cases where the facility has found it more cost effective to settle with victims than to address and correct the problems, creating a cycle of abuse. Knowing what to watch for can help to protect your loved one from becoming a victim. Some common signs to watch for include:

  • Depression
  • Sudden Weight Loss
  • Sudden Hair Loss
  • Bed Sores
  • Bruising (particularly from unnecessary restraints)
  • Signs of dehydration and malnutrition (glassy, red eyes and mouth sores are common)

If you believe that your loved one is a victim of abuse or neglect as a result of their care facility, get them the medical care that they need and then contact a personal injury attorney like Casey Stevens to help.

Client Reviews
After being involved and a five car accident I contacted Casey Stevens law firm. I was given his number by a fellow coworker at my job who had used him in the past and was very satisfied with his services. The car accident included myself my husband and my son, the accident was determined to be the fault of two drivers involved in the accident. Casey personally came to my home the next day and said down with me and my family at the kitchen table and went over all the events of the accident. There were months and months of physical therapy, doctor visits injections and while my son had to have his mouth wired after having his jaw broke in three places. Casey and his staff worked continuously on our case and after it was all said and done, they where able to get us over $300,000 in damages. I really want to Thank Casey Stevens and his staff for always being available for phone calls and answering any questions I might have. I will continue to recommend potential clients to Casey Stevens law firm. Nina F
