Do I Need a South Carolina Assisted Living Abuse Lawyer?
If you suspect your loved one is a victim of assisted living abuse, or you believe you are a victim yourself, you’ve come to the right place. It is wise to never proceed with these claims without a skilled team of South Carolina elder abuse attorneys on your side. We have decades of experience representing clients who’ve been harmed by various facilities, including assisted living facilities, and we can put that experience to work for you.
What Should I Do After an Incident of Assisted Living Abuse?
If you believe that your loved one is a victim of assisted living abuse, you should take the necessary steps to document the incident(s) and report them to the appropriate authorities. Typically, people will report instances of assisted living abuse to the SCDOA Long Term Care Ombudsman at 1-800-868-9095. That said, if you believe your loved one is at risk of immediate danger or he or she has been seriously injured, you should call the police and contact an experienced South Carolina assisted living abuse lawyer. The police will help ensure your loved one is taken to safety and receives the medical treatment he or she needs, and our firm can help you fight for the financial compensation you or your loved one deserve.
This compensation can be used to help you deal with the economic and non-economic damages you or your loved one have sustained as a result of the abuse. This compensation can cover the cost of medical bills and lost wages, and it can also contribute to other damages, such as pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
