Nursing Home Abuse in Knoxville, Tennessee

If you suspect that your loved one was the victim of nursing home abuse, reach out to us at The Sexton Law Firm. Nursing home abuse can take on many forms, but any pain or harm intentionally inflicted on a resident falls under this category. Nursing home abuse may also be inflicted by a facility employee, a regular visitor, another resident, or someone who does not have authorization to enter the nursing home.

Nursing home abuse can look like physical abuse, psychological or emotional abuse, sexual abuse, or financial abuse, where another person takes advantage of or steals a nursing home resident’s money or property. Unfortunately, many nursing home abuse cases never get reported because the resident may fear retaliation or fear burdening their loved ones by revealing the abuse.

We take many nursing home abuse cases on a contingency basis, meaning we will not receive payment until we successfully resolve the case. If you believe your loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse, please contact our office today to set up an initial consultation.
