Representing Victims with Compassion & Success Since 1922
Victims of nursing home abuse deserve the strongest possible advocate in their corner. Nursing home abuse is a terrible and underreported crime. Many victims are unable to report what is happening to them due to their own physical / cognitive impairments. That’s why it is so important for friends and family members to remain vigilant and to watch for warning signs of abuse. If you suspect something, say something. Report what you see, get help, and take steps to remove the nursing home resident from the situation. You may also have questions about the legal angle of the case.
Our lawyers at Handler Henning & Rosenberg LLP represent cases involving nursing home injury / wrongful death victims and their families. We believe in the importance of holding these institutions accountable and protecting the patients who need help and support.
