Defending the Rights of Individuals in Denver Elder Care and Throughout the State
When you check your loved one into a nursing home or hire a caregiver to watch over someone, you expect a high level of care and attention to be provided. Sadly, this is not always the case. According to Nursing Home Abuse Justice, as many as 24.3% of people have experienced at least one instance of physical abuse while in a nursing home. It is estimated that 5,000,000 people over 60 years old are abused each year—however, these statistics don’t include those who are too afraid or embarrassed to report their abuse, meaning the actual numbers are potentially much higher.
At Frost & Beck, P.C. we believe these numbers are unacceptable. The mistreatment of elderly individuals in the care of others is what we strive to fight against every single day. Our practice, based in the Denver and Boulder areas but serving all of Colorado, was started explicitly to protect those who have been abused in nursing homes by winning justice and compensation for them and their families.
If you or a loved one has been abused or neglected while in the care of a facility or individual who had a responsibility to take care of you, Frost & Beck, P.C. can help. Contact us online or call us at (720) 408-4402.
If you suspect or have evidence of nursing home abuse, speak to someone at the company or facility in a managerial position if you can. Contact the authorities if your loved one is in immediate danger. Then, contact an attorney. A Colorado nursing home abuse lawyer can help you piece together evidence to support your case as well as fight for compensation and punishment on your behalf.
