Omaha Elder Sexual Abuse Victim Attorneys
Representation for Elderly Victims of Sex Abuse
When you entered your mother, father or loved one into a nursing home, you did so with the best of intentions. You wanted to provide them with the care they needed in an environment that was both relaxing and inviting. At first, this was certainly the case and the home seemed to go above and beyond. But lately, you’ve begun to notice something is off – with both your loved one’s behavior and that of the people who are caring for her or him. You fear the worst and even believe there is a chance that your family member could have been abused. Some of the questions you might be asking yourself include:
- Who is responsible?
- How could this happen?
- Can I take legal action?
- Should I contact an attorney?
Unfortunately, too many honest, hard working families across the country are left to ask themselves these same questions when it comes to nursing home abuse. But help is available and if you are reading this page that means you’ve already begun taking the right steps.

Nursing home abuse, especially when it involves rape or sexual assault, is a particularly heinous crime that deserves swift action. Each year thousands of our elders are put into harm’s way by negligent nursing home owners, managers, and staffers. At Cullan & Cullan LLC, our Nebraska elder abuse lawyers are determined to hold those violators responsible and secure the kind of compensation your family deserves. Depending on the severity of the crime and the degree of negligence involved in your loved one’s abuse, the at-fault party could owe significant compensation in the form of:
- Long-term mental and emotional therapy
- Refunding of all nursing home expenses
- Medical bills and doctor’s fees
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
Who Should I Contact if I Suspect Abuse in a Nursing Home in Nebraska?
If you believe your loved one is suffering at the hands of a staff member or resident, we recommend you speak with the shift supervisor or anyone operating in a managerial role at the home. If your concerns are not addressed, or you believe it goes beyond one or two people, contact your regional Adult Protective Services. They will open a formal investigation, although it may take some time to meet your request. If you believe your loved one is in immediate danger, contact 911 and report what you have found. Finally, we highly recommend contacting our office and scheduling an appointment to discuss your case.
