that of which they could provide on their own. Unfortunately, this is
not always the case. If you suspect that your loved one is a victim of
abuse or neglect, a Charleston personal injury lawyer from Preston &
Salango, PLLC may be able to help.

Elderly family members deserve respect and quality care at this stage in
their lives. If you are aware of abuse or you suspect any type of wrongful

You may be able to take aggressive legal recourse against all responsible parties.
Some of the most common types of elder abuse & neglect include:
Recognizing & Investigating Claims of Elder Abuse
In most circumstances, the abuse stems from a member of the nursing home
staff, such as a doctor, caretaker, or administrator. There are various
signs that you can look for that could be indicators of abuse, including
change in behavior,
pressure sores, unexplainable bruises or cuts, weight loss and other out-of-character
behaviors. In the worst cases of neglect, abuse or overmedication, the
elderly person may be a
wrongful death victim. Financial abuse can be detected if there are sudden charges or
withdraws from a bank account.
