Nursing Home Abuse Is Shameful; We Will Fight For You
There is an expectation of trust when placing loved ones in another’s care. Nursing homes and other types of long-term care facilities are meant to be safe and comfortable havens for elderly individuals who require assistance or a caring and watchful eye as they carry on with their lives.
Unfortunately, throughout New Jersey, elderly or disabled individuals are the victims of neglect and mistreatment in the very establishments meant to protect them. With more than 100 years of experience handling a variety of medical malpractice cases, our attorneys at Lerner, Piermont & Riverol, P.A., understand the sense of betrayal families experience when they learn their loved ones have been mistreated.
We Protect Individuals And Families In Matters Of Elder Law
In cases of elderly or disabled patient abuse, it is not always a case of proving the type of harm inflicted upon a patient, but rather establishing that a deliberate case of inaction or willful neglect resulted in an injury or illness.
Some of the most common injuries our attorneys see when assisting clients with nursing home neglect and abuse include:
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Intimidation and emotional, verbal or physical abuse
- Unsanitary conditions
- Improperly administering medications
- Theft, fraud, forgery or other types of financial abuse and breach of trust
Regardless of your situation and the abuse sustained by a loved one while in the care of another, you have the power to pursue justice on behalf of those who lack a strong voice to speak out. At Lerner, Piermont & Riverol, P.A., we will take an aggressive stand to see that no further harm is committed.
