No one should be exposed to the atrocities of physical or sexual assault, let alone at a facility and by caregivers that are supposed to be ensuring their safety and well-being. Unfortunately, residents of nursing homes and elder care centers may be subject to abuse by other residents or the very people entrusted with their care.
At Fay Law Group, we believe in the pursuit of justice for those who have been assaulted by nursing home staff and residents throughout Maryland and the District of Columbia. With our trial experience and our attention to detail in every case we take on, we can help victims and their families seek justice, holding nursing homes and their staff accountable for negligent hiring practices, poor supervision, and looking the other way when residents complain of assault.

Exposing Elder Assault at Maryland & the District of Columbia Nursing Homes
When an elderly person is assaulted, the only answer is criminal and civil justice. In addition to facing arrest and imprisonment for assault, an offender or the facility where the incident occurred may be held liable for monetary damages. This may include the cost of medical treatment, ongoing medical care, and emotional trauma such as pain and suffering. Regardless of the type or severity of the assault, our Washington DC elder abuse lawyers are here to help you take action.
There are different types of assault that we have seen at nursing homes:
- Using unnecessary force
- Sexual assault
Do not wait to talk to an attorney about your rights and the appropriate steps to take in the face of assault by nursing home staff or residents. Call Fay Law Group at (202) 759-7833 today.
