Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse and neglect litigation is a substantial aspect of our practice at Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP. Our nursing home abuse lawyers have years of experience investigating cases of elder abuse, and are here to fight for the rights of your elderly loved one.

For most people, the decision to place an aging loved one in a nursing home or long-term care facility is a difficult one. Although these facilities promise to provide your elderly loved one with quality medical care, a caring staff, opportunities for exercise and activity, and an appropriate balance of safety and personal freedom, not all of them live up to their promises.

Elder Abuse

You may not be aware of the problems until problems until after your loved one has been admitted. When you visit, you notice patients being left by themselves in hallways for hours, or perhaps going ignored after calling for help. The staff looks incredibly busy, and the place has an unsanitary smell.

Your parent or grandparent has undergone sudden, unexplained personality changes, or has completely stopped talking. Perhaps your loved one looks all right, but you’re finding suspicious discrepancies in the billing.

If you ask, your loved one may not be completely honest with you about how he or she is being treated out of fear of retaliation. In fact, The National Center on Elder Abuse estimates that for every reported instance of nursing home abuse, five incidents go unreported.

One of the best ways to fight this ongoing problem is to hold these facilities legally accountable for their actions. Don’t hesitate to call Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP for a free consultation if you notice any of the following:

  • Unexplained broken bones, wounds, or signs of blunt force trauma
  • Pressure sores
  • Significant changes in behavior
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Patients who are left unattended for long periods of time
  • Staff members failing to respond to calls for help
  • Rough treatment of patients
  • Failure to bathe or clean up patients who have soiled themselves
  • Dehydration or malnutrition
  • Switched medications or anything that makes you suspect medical malpractice

Client Testimonials
  • "I first met Nick Moraitakis under the worst possible circumstances. The sudden, tragic death of my husband left me alone with a young child. Needless to say, I was in shock and emotionally paralyzed, with nothing more than unanswered questions. At a loss and nowhere to turn, a family friend recommended I contact Nick. Little did I know the impact he would have on my life. From the moment we met, I knew he was someone I could trust. At a time when I was vulnerable and scared, trust was something that was hard to come by. He immediately went to work on my case, which was a great feeling because it gave me hope. He has walked me through the entire process, answered even the most trivial of questions, and perhaps most importantly, listened to me. He has always made himself available when I have needed him and I honestly feel that my case is important and a top priority. Words cannot begin to express how invaluable Nick has been through the most difficult time in my life. Nick has gone above and beyond the call of duty for me, and for that, I am forever grateful. I have been completely devastated by my husband’s death, but now that our financial future is more secure, I can focus on what is most important: raising my daughter the way my husband and I always wanted."  -Catherine G., Atlanta, GA

  • "We were very blessed to have Glenn representing us at a very difficult time in our lives. Due to medical negligence, our son was left brain damaged and severely incapacitated. Glenn was always available to us when we needed him and he took our concerns and needs seriously. We were treated as friends not just as clients and if Glenn didn’t have an answer for us when we asked, he would tell us “I don’t have an answer for you right now, but I will find out and get back to you” and he always did. Thanks to Glenn and his assistant Konnie, we were represented with legal counsel that exceeded our expectations."  -Allen and Catherine D., Atlanta, GA

  • "The best decision you can make. If you are reading this testimonial and wondering about Nick Moraitakis: Is he a good attorney? Can he help me? Does he understand what I am going through? Will he give me the attention and time I seek? Does he know his way through the Law, in the Courts and with the Judges? Will he understand how important this case is to me? Is he honest? Does he have great integrity? … Does his staff reflect his values and professionalism? My answer YES and YES!!!! Nick Moraitakis represented me in a challenging case and at a difficult time in my life. Having him as my attorney was the best thing that could happen to me- He had my best interest in mind, he worked with me as if I was his only client and was with me all the way through!"  -Simona E., Atlanta, GA

  • "I nearly died on an operating room table and had many complications. I was referred by another law firm to Glenn Kushel. I do not regret my decision to have them represent me in this matter. They were great! They came to me, as I was unable to travel. They listened and really cared about you as a person. They always returned my calls the same day. Their legal assistant Konnie Tate is the best. Glenn and his staff got me all the compensation I was entitled to. They worked hard to make sure I could get back on my feet and take care of my children. Thank you Glenn, Konnie & staff for all your hard work."  -Rhonda H., Atlanta, GA
