Protecting The Rights Of Those Who Were Abused In A Nursing Home
When a person moves to a nursing home, their family and loved ones trust the nursing home staff to uphold the highest standards of care. Unfortunately, many staff members fail to offer even the necessary level of care for their residents. Older people at these nursing homes may be put in dangerous situations or forced to endure abuse by staff members. If you or your loved one was hurt because of a nursing home’s negligence or lack of oversight, you need knowledgeable legal help who can fight to get your deserved compensation.
I am Joseph M. Lange, and I work to get injured older adults and their families compensation for the negligence of nursing homes and their staff. At my firm, Lange Law Corporation, I serve clients in El Segundo, Los Angeles and the nearby areas of California.

Common Types Of Nursing Home Abuse
Elder abuse can take many forms. Nursing home staff can neglect to give elderly residents proper care, food, water and medical attention. Staff may physically, emotionally, sexually or psychologically abuse their elderly residents. Finally, some staff members may exploit elderly people for their financial gain.
In some of the worst circumstances, a loved one may die because of this abuse. The staff may have failed to protect them or may have given them poor treatment, which then caused the elderly person’s unnecessary death. It is an avoidable tragedy that unfortunately continues because nursing homes refuse to take their responsibility seriously.
