If you suspect that your loved one is a victim of nursing home abuse, Goddard & Wagoner, PLLC is here to help you investigate and file a claim.

COMMON SIGNS & TYPES OF NURSING HOME ABUSE
The signs of nursing home abuse or neglect can vary widely, however, it is important to know a few common things to look out for. For example, if your loved one’s personality has changed drastically or you notice that they shy away from your touch, these could be signs of physical or emotional abuse. If you notice your loved one has lost a significant amount of weight or seems weaker than usual, they could be malnourished. It can be difficult to see these signs right away but if you suspect your loved one is not being taken care of, our Clarksburg & Morgantown nursing home abuse lawyers can help.
