If Your Loved One Has Suffered Abuse or Neglect, You Can Do Something About It

You put your trust in a residential care facility with the understanding they would provide great care for your loved one, then you find out the worst has happened. If your loved one has suffered abuse or neglect at a nursing home, assisted living, or other residential care facility for adults, there is something you can do about it. The experienced attorneys at Carr Legal Group can help you hold the wrongdoer accountable and receive compensation to help you and your loved one move forward with your lives.

In most cases, South Carolina law requires a lawsuit to be filed within 3 years of the date of injury, but there are circumstances in which some cases are subject to less time, so the time to take legal action is now.

If You Suspect Abuse or Neglect, Here are Some Warning Signs 

If you suspect something is wrong, it’s important to consider warning signs of abuse or negligence. South Carolina law defines abuse as physical or psychological in nature, and neglect as failure to provide care, goods, or services necessary for health and safety.

Victims of abuse or neglect are sometimes reluctant to speak up about what they are going through, but signs such as bruises, lacerations, poor hygiene, dehydration, malnutrition, bedsores, fecal impaction, or slips and falls can indicate a problem.

Physical abuse includes, but is not limited to: 

  • Slapping, hitting, pinching, pushing, burning, choking, grabbing
  • Unnecessary physical or chemical restraint
  • Actual or attempted sexual battery

Psychological abuse includes, but is not limited to: 

  • Threats or harassment
  • Any intimidating behavior that causes emotional pain or distress. 

Neglect includes failure to provide:

  • Food, clothing, shelter, or medication as prescribed
  • Adequate supervision or medical care
