Peer on Peer Abuse

As the nursing home and residential care population continues to grow, primarily among the segment suffering from Alzheimer's disease or dementia, peer-on-peer abuse is becoming more prevalent. Any nursing home that admits residents with dementia or Alzheimer's, or any other psychological disorder that may have violent tendencies, has a duty to evaluate each resident for their tendency for abuse on others, and prepare an adequate plan-of-care. A San Diego nursing home abuse lawyer can help you bring a claim if your loved one has been harmed by another resident.

Nursing home residents have a right to be free from abuse, whether it's at the hands of a caregiver or a fellow resident. Failure to protect residents may expose the nursing home to legal liability.

The injury lawyers at Walton Law Firm have successfully prosecuted San Diego nursing homes and other care facilities in civil courts for peer-on-peer abuse. If you have questions about such abuse, please submit your confidential question online, or call Walton Law Firm for a free and private consultation with an attorney. We can be reached toll free at 866-607-1325 or locally at (760) 607-1325.
