Corpus Christi Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
Representing Injured Seniors in Nueces County & Across Texas
A nursing home is a facility that provides residential accommodations and
healthcare, typically for the elderly. It should act as a place of safety
and comfort for its residents, but not all nursing homes live up to this
standard. Nursing home residents across the U.S. are subjected to abuse
and mistreatment at an alarming rate, at an estimated one in three facilities
throughout the country.
The Bandas Law Firm is committed to seeking justice for elderly patients
and residents of nursing homes, residential care communities, and elder
care centers in Nueces County and across Texas. Our team realizes the
type of physical and psychological impact that elder abuse can have on
its victims and their families, and we strive to help our clients rebuild
their lives while holding at-fault parties accountable.

Types of Nursing Home Abuse
Nursing home abuse can take on different forms. It may include:
Physical abuse, which includes the use of physical force against an elderly person. Physical
punishment, excessive restraints, hitting, burning, striking, or otherwise
harming a victim are all examples of physical abuse.
Sexual abuse, which includes forced or non-consensual sexual contact or conduct with
an elderly person. Unwanted or inappropriate touching, rape, or taking
pictures of a nude elderly person are examples of sexual abuse.
Emotional abuse, which involves inflicting anguish, pain, or psychological trauma through
verbal assault, humiliation, isolation, threats, harassment, or other
verbal or nonverbal means.
Financial abuse/exploitation, which can be defined as illegally or improperly using or obtaining an
elderly person’s assets. Theft, coercion, forgery, and fraud are
examples of financial abuse.
