Fighting for Justice on Our Clients’ Behalf Since 1922
Nursing home abuse is one of the most devastating yet underreported crimes nationwide. With a shrinking number of people who are actually qualified to take care of elderly patients in nursing home settings, and corporations increasingly taking over operations of such facilities, it has become harder and harder to verify that safety can be assured. In a bid to maximize profit, staff can be cut back and individuals who lack the necessary skill set are increasingly being hired because they’re willing to accept lower salaries.
This is a recipe for potential disaster, and that’s why the Pennsylvania nursing home abuse attorneys of Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLP want to help those who have been taken advantage of by this system.
Since 1922, our personal injury firm has assisted persons who have been injured in a wide variety of accidents. Call (888) 498-3023 for more information about your legal options.
Common Nursing Home Neglect Injuries
Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLP does not back down from holding these parties responsible. Several local nursing homes are currently facing litigation filed by our law firm for acts of neglect and abuse. The Pennsylvania Attorney General is also involved in the investigation. Nursing home abuse can take many forms, some of them going beyond the most obvious types of grievances.
Persons might qualify to file a lawsuit if they have been the victims of:
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Inappropriate medication dosing or medical care
- Wrongful constraint to a room or bed
- Improper hygiene assistance
- Financial abuse, such as fraud, extortion, and coercion
- Wander and elopement
In each of these instances, the victim is entitled to receive financial compensation from those who have inflicted harm. Whether it be a staff member who abused their status within the care facility or a relative who used scare tactics or outright lies to take advantage of a Power of Attorney privilege, the victim deserves recompense for what they’ve been put through.
