Danbury Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

As much as 20 percent of Danbury residents are seniors. Nursing homes and assisted living facilities can provide high-quality care for seniors who can’t take care of themselves adequately, allowing them to age with dignity and grace.

Unfortunately, some seniors have suffered neglect and mistreatment at the hands of the very ones that their families entrusted them to. This breach of trust is fast becoming shockingly more common. The US Department of Justice estimates that more than 1 in 10 seniors experience some form of elder abuse every year.

Has Your Loved One Suffered Elder Abuse in CT?

Families like yours often have little choice but to place their elderly loved ones in a nursing home. This is not a decision that you've taken lightly. Since these homes and their staff are available for the express purpose of compassionately caring for the elderly, reports of nursing home negligence are distressing.

What is nursing home abuse? It is any action or inaction, whether intentional or not, that causes harm or risk of harm to a nursing home resident. This can take place in other care facilities as well. Elder abuse is a serious matter. The trauma that it brings can result in physical and psychological harm, strain social and family relationships, bring financial loss, and even contribute to premature death.

Elder abuse can take many forms. Note just a few of the types of nursing home abuse below. Has your loved one suffered from any of these?

  • Physical abuse

  • Psychological abuse

  • Financial exploitation

  • Neglect and abandonment

  • Sexual abuse


Nursing home negligence and abuse bring suffering to both residents and their families. If you believe that your family member has been mistreated at one of Danbury's nursing homes, you may need legal representation.

Warning Signs to Look Out For In a CT Nursing Home

What if you are unsure whether abuse has occurred or nursing home negligence has taken place? Here are some warning signs that you may have already observed.

Physical abuse

As hard as it is to believe, some nursing home staff members have been known to physically abuse residents. Does your loved one have bruises, black eyes, or rope marks on his or her wrists? Or perhaps he or she has experienced an unexplained injury, such as a bone fracture or break?

There are also some emotional warning signs to watch out for, including sudden changes in behavior or a caregiver's refusal to let you meet with your loved one alone.

Psychological abuse

Has your loved one's demeanor changed significantly and rapidly? Being emotionally upset or easily agitated, withdrawn, non-communicative, or non-responsive can indicate emotional abuse. Be especially observant of emerging depression or anxiety. Ask your loved one how he or she is being treated and listen carefully.

Financial exploitation

Opportunists may exploit the generous and trusting nature of older ones. Have you noticed any sudden changes in your loved one's bank account balance or banking practices? Has your loved one withdrawn a large sum of money for no apparent reason or added a name onto a bank card? Unexplained banking anomalies are red flags that another person may be pulling the strings.

Neglect and abandonment

If your family member seems dehydrated, malnourished, or has poor personal hygiene, his or her caregiver may be neglecting important needs. You have trusted this facility to provide a safe environment for your family member since he or she deserves to be treated with dignity. However, you must always pay attention to the state of the room, any lingering foul orders, or other signs that may indicate negligence and abandonment. 

Sexual abuse

A truly deplorable form of mistreatment, sexual abuse is somewhat rare but not unheard of in care facilities. Keep an eye out for bruises around your loved one’s private parts and unexplained bleeding on bed sheets or clothing. There may be emotional signs too, such as a change in your loved one’s demeanor, especially when the abuser is near.

If the above describes what your loved one has experienced, we urge you to consult a legal team that understands the intricacies and implications of nursing home abuse. Gould Injury Law has helped many Danbury families who have faced similar situations. 

You don't have to fight for justice on your own. Connect with a law firm that cares by calling Gould Injury Law today at 888-WIN-FAST.
