About Sexual Abuse in Nursing Homes

The after effects of sexual abuse can be emotionally devastating. Some victims of sexual abuse never recover from the experience, which can lead to life-long unhappiness and dissatisfaction. When it comes to sexual abuse in a nursing home, it is important to know that legal action can and should be taken against the abusive party. If you suspect your relative may be suffering sexual abuse from a worker at their care facility, there are a few signs that you should look for.

Signs include:

  • Sudden shift in temperament or mood
  • Emotional detachment
  • Bruises or lacerations
  • Unexplained genital infection
  • Contraction of a venereal disease
  • Bloody, stained, or torn undergarments

Seeking compensation from the guilty party can give a victim of abuse a sense of closure, helping along the healing process immensely. If you or a relative has been the victim of sexual abuse, you should not hesitate to seek out a skilled law firm immediately. An attorney well-versed in the laws and circumstances surrounding sexual abuse cases can greatly increase your chances of bringing the offender to justice.

Pursue justice for your loved one!

Taking legal action against an abusive individual can help to ensure that the offender will not be able to abuse the victim or anyone else in the future. The perpetrator will be sentenced by a judge with mandatory sex offender registration and other penalties. As a registered sex offender, your abuser will be placed in a position in which his or her potential to harm you or other individuals will be greatly diminished. The case can also be addressed in a lawsuit filed in civil court to recover compensation, a separate legal matter. Our firm can help.

At Bostwick & Peterson, our attorneys are dedicated to helping victims of sexual abuse seek justice. We will work with you directly throughout every step of the legal process to build a case that leaves no doubt as to the validity of your claims. You should not have to live in fear, take action today.
