Sexual Abuse in Alabama Nursing Homes

Let Our Mobile Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers Fight for Your Loved Ones

When you move your elderly loved one into a nursing home, you expect the caregivers and staff members to provide care and treat him/her with dignity and respect. Unfortunately, there are many cases where nursing home residents are subjected to nursing home abuse, which includes sexual abuse. Elderly individuals are extremely vulnerable to sexual predators because they are defenseless, physically weak, or have suffered a medical condition which caused them to lose their ability to speak or move independently.

If you suspect your loved one is being sexually abused at a nursing home facility, our Mobile personal injury attorneys at Cunningham Bounds can help protect your family member’s rights and well-being. With decades of experience and billions of dollars recovered on behalf of our clients, we know what it takes to help your family obtain the financial compensation and the justice you deserve.

Signs of Sexual Abuse in Nursing Homes

Sexual abuse is non-consensual sexual contact, which includes: rape, sodomy, inappropriate or unwanted touching, sexual coercion, sexual harassment, and being photographed in a sexual manner. Nursing home residents who are too frail, ill, or mentally/physically incapacitated to provide consent are often victims of sexual abuse. They can be sexually abused by nursing home staff members, other residents, or even family members.

The following are common signs of sexual abuse in a nursing home:

  • Unexplained blood stains on bed sheets or clothing
  • Bleeding and bruising in the genital areas, breasts, and inner thighs
  • Torn, bloody, or stained underclothing
  • Unexplained sexually transmitted disease or infection
  • Pain when sitting down that wasn’t present before
  • Fear, anxiety, and stress when a specific person is around, such as a staff member, another resident, or an acquaintance
  • Depression and withdrawal

If you suspect your loved one is being sexually abused, immediately call the police and gather evidence to support your claims, which is also beneficial for the corresponding investigation. Our Mobile personal injury lawyers can discuss your legal options and develop an effective plan to recover monetary damages on behalf of your family.
