The Dangers of Restraints
At The Breslo Law Firm, we help special needs and developmentally disabled people who have been injured due to group home abuse and neglect. One major source of group home injuries is improper use of restraints.
Improper use of physical restraints can lead to lack of blood flow throughout the body and accidental strangulation. Chemical restraints — sedatives, for instance — if not properly administered, can result in respiratory complications, heart problems and wrongful death.
Bed rails are another form of restraint that can lead to serious injury. Residents can fall down between rail and bed, leading to suffocation and other injuries. Also, residents may try to climb over bed rails, leading to dangerous falls.
Whatever type of injury your loved one has suffered, our attorneys can help you file a claim to seek monetary compensation for the hardships he or she has endured. We give every client personal and attentive client service. We want you to know you do not have to go through this alone.
