Kansas City Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Elderly people who have been entrusted to the care of an assisted living facility or nursing home are there for a reason-they have become incapable of fully caring for themselves, and require help and support in their daily lives.
Anyone who takes advantage of a senior citizen's weakness and vulnerability in order to carry out any form of physical, emotional or sexual abuse can-and should-be held accountable. If you suspect that a loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse, do not hesitate to contact us at the Montee Law Firm, P.C. for help.

Fighting for the Victims of Elder Abuse in Kansas City
The victims of nursing home abuse frequently do not speak out about the situation, either out of shame or fear of reprisals. Encourage your loved one to discuss the situation in a safe place, perhaps outside of the nursing home. A Kansas City nursing home abuse attorney from our firm may be able to help your family recover a settlement which can include compensation for medical bills, economic damages and pain and suffering, as well as punitive damages in some cases. By taking legal action, you could not only help your loved one, but also safeguard others against similar abuses by exposing the situation to the public.
Signs of Abuse
- Unexplained bruises
- Hair loss
- Bed sores
- Weight loss
- Behavior changes
- Mood changes
- Changes in appetite
"What should I do if a loved one suffers abuse?"
When your family member shows signs such as unexplained bruises or other injuries, dehydration or dramatic weight loss due to malnutrition, you have reason to suspect that abuse is taking place. Even if nobody in the facility has attacked or directly harmed your loved one, you may be able to sue the care provider for neglect which has left your family member isolated in sordid living quarters.
We can also represent your family in a wrongful death lawsuit in the event that abuse or neglect has resulted in the tragic loss of your loved one. Bring the case to us as early as possible, so that we can begin work on a strategy for claiming the compensation you deserve.
If you believe that an elderly family member is being abused, contact our firm today for aggressive legal representation.
