Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Lawyers in Fayetteville, AR

Helping Families of Abused Elderly Across Northwest Arkansas

Most families struggle with the decision to place an elderly loved one in a nursing home. Whether an older family member is suffering from dementia or advanced health problems, sometimes the safest place for a beloved senior is a residential care facility that possesses the right medical equipment and properly trained staff to look after the people we love. Unfortunately, even the most pleasant façade can hide abuse and neglect.

Nursing home negligence is a widespread problem and one that is on the rise. At Deacon Law Firm, we are prepared to challenge the institutions and individuals responsible for abusing the most vulnerable members of our society. Our skilled Fayetteville, AR personal injury attorneys work to obtain justice and compensation on behalf of nursing home abuse victims and their families.

Justice for Seniors & Their Families

Because the signs and symptoms of nursing home abuse often resemble ailments common among the elderly population, it can be difficult for family members to recognize when a loved one is being victimized. This is why it’s important for a senior’s family to remain involved and attentive while the senior is residing in a long-term care facility.

  • Common types of nursing home negligence include:
  • Emotional and mental abuse
  • Excessive bruises
  • Lacerations
  • Fractures
  • Bed sores
  • Falls
  • Inadequate supervision
  • Medication errors and overmedicating

  • Septic shock/sepsis
  • Sexual abuse
