Signs of Financial Nursing Home Abuse
Unfortunately, there are a number of ways that an individual could be the
victim of abuse or neglect while in a nursing home. With
more than 40 years of combined experience in the field, our Charleston nursing home abuse lawyers are prepared to
take on even the most complex cases of
nursing home abuse. One of the most common forms of nursing home abuse is financial abuse.
There are a variety of ways financial abuse may occur in the nursing home,
- Stealing a resident's personal property
- Stealing information from the resident in order to withdrawal money from
their bank account
- Forcing a resident to modify a will, deed, or trust in order to grant themselves
some of the resident's assets
- Forging a resident's signature
- Charging a resident false fees
- Deceiving a resident into signing a financial document
Nursing home abuse cases can be complex, because it may be difficult to
prove that the care facility was in fact abusive or negligent towards
a resident. Our very own Attorney Salango has been named a
Top 100 Trial Lawyer by The National Trial Lawyers association, demonstrating that we are not afraid to go to trial or fight a corporation
on behalf of our clients.
While it is not as easy to detect financial abuse in comparison to physical
abuse, there are still a number of signs that you can look for. If you
are unsure whether or not your loved one is being financially abused in
their nursing home, it may be useful for you to look for any of the following signs:
- Changes made to wills, deeds, or trusts
- Frequent and/ or recent withdrawals from bank accounts
- New loans or mortgage contracts
- Stolen personal property
- Signs of contracts without notifying the resident's family
