Orange County Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

We Can Help You Take a Stand Against Elder Abuse

If you or a loved one has been abused or neglected while under the care of a nursing home or assisted living facility, you should not hesitate to reach out to the Orange County personal injury lawyers at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. Nursing home abuse and neglect are especially contemptible crimes because of the sheer vulnerability of the residents they are charged with the responsibility of caring for.

Elderly men and women that are subject to this type of behavior are sometimes not even aware that it is happening, which is a common reason it goes on in the first place. Fortunately, you have rights. With the help of an Orange County injury attorney, you can fight for the justice and fair compensation that you and your family deserve. Unsure about whether or not you have a valid claim?

Nursing home abuse and neglect can take place in many different forms:

Recognizing the Warning Signs of Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Unfortunately, some signs of nursing home abuse and/or neglect are easier to detect than others. For example, unexplained bruises, broken bones or lacerations may be a clear indication that physical abuse has taken place. When it comes to emotional abuse or medical neglect, however, the signs may not be as apparent.

For this reason, it is important that you do not ignore things like sudden changes in behavior, rapid weight loss or signs of dehydration. Any of these factors could be an indication that your elderly loved one is not receiving the level of care that they need and deserve.

Filing a Lawsuit for Nursing Home Abuse

In a situation of elder abuse or neglect, the family's primary concern is to ensure the safety of their loved ones. At Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., we help our clients take the next step to securing their loved one's future after these tragic circumstances. This often includes filing a lawsuit against the negligent facility or caretaker. This is a vital step for two reasons: it provides an opportunity to secure financial compensation for the injuries and damages that the victim sustained, and it provides an opportunity to hold the negligent party accountable for their actions.

Our personal injury team knows that taking legal action is more than simply punishing the negligent party—it is about seeking justice and a fair resolution after facing unfortunate circumstances. If you or someone you love is suffering from elder abuse or neglect in the Orange County area, filing a successful lawsuit may not only provide the security that you and your family needs, but also prevent future harm from coming to others at the hands of the negligent party.

Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • Highly Recommend

    “I cannot recommend the offices of Cohn & Swartzon highly enough. I was referred to them after being involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. I was in pain and after 6 weeks was still trying to be seen by a physical therapist. I met with Jason the first day and he couldn't have been nicer. He seemed to really care about me and my case and within 24 hours I was being seen at a great facility for physical therapy. My case was taken over by Elva who was always on top of things. She kept me in the loop and pretty much took over everything so that I didn't have to deal with it. She was able to get the highest amount possible and I walked away with more than I could have hoped for. I am so thankful for her and the entire office of Cohn & Swartzon.”

  • Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything

    “I am very happy to recommend Cohn & Swartzon. My two young daughters and I were hit by a teenage driver whose vehicle flipped over our SUV. Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything, from dealing with my own insurance to educating me on the importance of getting top notch medical care. We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible. Thank you so much!”

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided!

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”

    Maria S.

  • The entire firm was professional and supportive

    “I would highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone seeking a fair settlement as a result of an auto accident. The Firm came highly recommended to me and I understand why. They took the time to explain what would happen, they aligned me with excellent medical care, and they were able to negotiate a fast and fair settlement for my injuries. Throughout the process the entire Firm was professional and supportive.”


  • They stayed true to their word

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”
