At Killian Law Group, we believe in the dignity of patients and residents of elder care facilities. When these individuals are subject to neglect or abuse, we are dedicated to fighting for fair and just compensation for the injured victims.
If you suspect that your loved one is the victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, call Killian Law Group to speak with a skilled Maryland nursing home abuse lawyer about your options. Things to look for include:
- Isolation or withdrawal
- Personality changes
- Weight loss
- Dirty or torn undergarments

Nursing home abuse can manifest itself in a variety of forms, such as physical, emotional, and even sexual abuse. It is vital that family members stay vigilant as their elderly loved ones are vulnerable to such treatment and may be unable to advocate for themselves. Family members may bring several types of claims against nursing home facilities, including actions alleging physical abuse, sexual abuse, or emotional abuse, financial exploitation, and false imprisonment.
Lawsuits against nursing homes can be complicated and stressful. If you decide to pursue a lawsuit, consulting with a qualified Maryland nursing home abuse lawyer may be one of the important first steps to take if you suspect abuse or neglect.
