San Jose | Santa Clara County Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

As a place meant for safety, security, and health, a nursing home should provide one of the most comfortable living experiences in a person’s life. But sadly the issue of nursing home abuse has become a more common occurrence affecting their friend or loved one.

The main types of abuse include:

  • Emotional Abuse
  • Physical Abuse
  • Neglect
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Abandonment
  • Financial Exploitation
  • Resident-to-resident Abuse

No matter where your loved one or family member ends up, always keep an eye open for signs of neglect and abuse as you visit them at the location. Continually watch for indicators of injury, isolation, malnutrition, and fear even after finding somewhere you feel comfortable with.

As the best team of Santa Clara County nursing home abuse attorneys, Berman & Riedel, LLP is determined to protect your loved ones from physical abuse, verbal attacks, sexual abuse, and other major concerns that may arise while they’re living in a nursing home. Our team works diligently to get you or your loved one just compensation that fits the suffering they have been dealing with.

How to Report Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect in Santa Clara County

When these problems arise at your loved one’s nursing home, it is imperative that you know how to report them to the proper sources and authorities. Depending on the scenario, there are a few people you’ll want to contact.

If a nursing home is convicted of these crimes, they can face citations, fines, as well as penalties.

Medical or Criminal Emergency

Any time you find yourself or a loved one in present and immediate danger, call 911 right away. They’ll be your first advocate to show up and provide instant medical care or protection.

Imminent Danger or Suspected Criminal Activity

When there is no immediate threat but there is a risk of danger or potential conflict, you should contact the non-emergency line for your local police. For people in San Jose or Santa Clara County, you’ll want to reach out to the Office of the Sheriff at (408) 299-2311.

Once you’ve notified non-emergency personnel, you should also contact the closest Adult Protective Services (APS) office for assistance. To arrange for their help, treatment, and protection for your loved one, reach out to:

Santa Clara County Social Services Agency
333 W. Julian, San Jose, CA 95010
Phone: (800) 414-2002 or (408) 975-4900

Issues with Standard of Care

If you’ve seen your family member or loved one at their nursing home and have a concern about the standard of care being provided, you should contact the California Department of Public Health office. People living in San Jose or Santa Clara County can choose between:

San Jose District Office
100 Paseo de San Antonio, Suite 235, San Jose, CA 95113
Phone: (408) 277-1784

San Francisco District Office
150 North Hill Drive, Suite 22, Brisbane, CA 94005
Phone: (415) 330-6353

Additional Resources

To get help with gathering information and evidence, as well as understanding the rights of your loved ones, a California ombudsman is a great resource.

It is also ideal to contact a Santa Clara County nursing home abuse lawyer to ensure the situation doesn’t escalate or continue. They’ll bring additional knowledge and insight to the table so you can be educated and informed on what to do next.

Best Santa Clara County Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers

The search for a convenient and reliable nursing home in Santa Clara County is one of the most important steps to avoid abuse in the first place. Understanding the difference between nursing homes and assisted living facilities is a vital part of the process as well. Residential care facilities that offer assisted living provide basic care and help with daily activities, while nursing homes have on-site medical staff at all times such as nurses and doctors.

Adding up to about 12% of the Santa Clara County population, the area is home to more than 230,000 seniors. Among the top 5 California counties for nursing home residents, there are about 4,666 people currently living in skilled nursing facilities in San Jose and across Santa Clara County.

Ratings for the 52 nursing homes in San Jose & Santa Clara County by Medicare.gov show results based on quality of living, health inspections, and on-site personnel. Many options in the area boast a good track record with 39 of them holding a rating of either four or five stars. Identifying factors like these are a great way to see if nursing home neglect attorneys have ever needed to get involved with problems.

Regardless of your findings within this and other tools, you should always remain diligent in monitoring your loved ones. It only takes one issue of negligence to lead down a twisted path that could cause long-term problems. And if that ever happens, be sure to reach out to a dependable group of San Jose nursing home abuse attorneys right away.

How Can a San Jose Nursing Home Negligence Attorney Help?

If you’re wondering whether a San Jose nursing home abuse lawyer can truly assist you, it’s important that you understand what they do. When a loved one is abused or neglected in a nursing home setting, these attorneys recognize fair remuneration, protect their rights, and help convict those individuals who have wronged them.

It is the responsibility of a Santa Clara County nursing home negligence attorney to know the regulations involved in these situations, gather evidence, and collect compensation and monetary damages for the senior’s suffering. Whether the case goes to trial or ends in a settlement, you can rest assured they’ll do right by you.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to common questions people have about personal injury cases and working with a lawyer. During your initial consultation, we will be happy to answer questions that are particular to your case.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

The attorneys at Berman & Riedel, LLP, accept cases on a contingency-fee basis. This type of agreement means you do not pay any attorneys’ fees out-of-pocket for legal representation. Attorneys’ fees are also contingent on the outcome of your case.

You benefit from legal representation in exchange for an agreed-upon percentage of a settlement or jury award. We will only recover a fee if you recover compensation.

Can You Tell Me How Much My Case Is Worth?

There is no way to determine the exact value of a personal injury case, especially early in your case. However, an experienced attorney can give you an estimated range based on their experience with similar cases.

There are many factors that may influence the value of your case, such as:

  • Your total financial or economic damages
  • The severity of your injuries
  • The impact of your injuries on your daily life
  • The strength of your case
  • Whether you share fault for your accident
  • Insurance policy limits 

Some damages are easy to calculate, such as lost wages and medical bills. Calculating the value of diminished earnings for the rest of your life or future medical needs; however, may require the help of experts. Non-economic damages like pain and suffering have no intrinsic financial value. These damages are challenging to calculate. 

If your case goes before a jury, you may potentially be able to recover more than you could through a settlement. However, this introduces a new element of risk: the jury. The circumstances of your accident and even how sympathetic you or the defendant are can influence the outcome.

During your consultation, and throughout your case, we will help you understand how these factors influence your case. We will also work tirelessly to document the value of all your damages and pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.

Will My Case Go to Trial?

The vast majority of cases are resolved by reaching a settlement agreement outside of court. Very few personal injury cases actually go to trial, but it is more likely if the facts in your case are in dispute, a legal issue is being contested, or you have a high-value case.

An experienced lawyer will build your case as if it will go to trial from the beginning. The stronger your case and evidence, the more likely a fair settlement will be reached.

How Do I Know If I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

If your case involves mostly property damage or minor injuries, you likely do not need a lawyer to handle a claim with the insurance company. The more serious your injuries, or the more complex your case, the more important it becomes to seek experienced legal counsel.

Remember that the insurance company is not on your side, even if the insurance adjuster seems sympathetic and you receive a settlement offer. If you are being blamed for your accident or sustained serious injury, a lawyer will help you protect your rights and build the strongest case possible. This includes calculating the full value of your current and future losses.

Legal representation is also vital if your case involves a complex area of law such as elder abuse or neglect, premises liability, commercial vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, or serious work-related accidents. Determining liability, navigating decades of legal precedence, and interpreting specific statutes in these cases is best done with years of relevant legal experience.

Do You Accept Cases Outside of San Diego?

While our law office is located in San Diego, Berman & Riedel, LLP, accepts cases throughout the state of California.
