After noticing bruises on their family member, a 71 year old stroke victim, the family reported their concerns about possible abuse to the nursing home management.  After that went nowhere, the family installed a video camera in her room.  It recorded her being hit, having her hair pulled and jerked around, having her fingers bent back and other abuse.  A jury's verdict assessed $2.25 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages.

Nursing home abuse cases are very difficult for the family of the abused resident.  If your family has been harmed by nursing home abuse, call Lexington, Kentucky lawyer Robert L. Abell.
