Neglect Resulting In Dehydration And Malnutrition
When an elderly person is unable to care for him or herself, you put your trust in others to make sure that he or she is fed, bathed, clothed and watched over in a safe environment. If your loved one is unable to communicate when he or she has missed a meal, not been staying hydrated or experiencing related issues, it may not become apparent until there is a serious issue.
The lawyers at The Law Firm of Hill, Peterson, Carper, Bee & Deitzler, PLLC, represent victims of medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and other personal injuries. Our attorneys advocate only for injured victims, and we have decades of experience helping individuals obtain the compensation they deserve for their injuries.
Injuries And Illnesses Because Of Dehydration And Malnutrition
Dehydration and malnutrition can lead to much more serious health issues that can have long-term effects. Lack of nutrients in the body can make a person more susceptible to illnesses, broken bones from falls and other serious injuries. Long-term injuries and illnesses are also much more difficult for an elderly person to permanently fight off.
Our attorneys are known throughout the area for their knowledge of the nursing home abuse laws in West Virginia and have a positive reputation within the legal community handling these cases. We stand up for our clients, even when times are tough, and work to achieve the best possible resolution.
