Physical And Sexual Abuse

Nursing homes have a vital responsibility to provide a safe place for the elderly. Too often, however, poor policies and substandard care result in abuse and neglect. While long-term care facilities are charged with providing care, they sometimes do serious harm to residents.

At James L. Arruebarrena, L.L.C., we believe that everyone deserves a safe place to live, human dignity and access to justice. Attorney James Arruebarrena represents the elderly victims of nursing home abuse in personal injury matters in New Orleans, Louisiana, and the surrounding communities.

If You Have Suffered... Now It's Their Turn To Pay

Bringing legal action is important for many reasons. We can pursue the financial compensation you deserve for your injuries. In addition, we can send the message to nursing homes that this kind of conduct is unacceptable, and prevent future abuses against other seniors.

We represent victims of physical and sexual abuse in nursing homes as well as their families. We encourage you to contact us for a consultation if you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of abuse, including:

  • Bedsores, also called pressure ulcers
  • Dehydration or malnutrition
  • Overmedication
  • Wandering off
  • Falls caused by improper supervision
  • Physical injuries such as bruises, broken bones or welts
  • Poor hygiene
  • Withdrawn or anxious behavior
