Nursing Home Abuse Attorney in Pennsylvania
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
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.

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 to the
residents of their facilities.
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.
