New Jersey Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuits
December 7, 2011
Entrusting your elderly loved one to the care of a nursing home is always a leap of faith. We depend on nursing homes to provide our family members with around-the-clock supervision and care, giving them a safe place to live out their final years in comfort and dignity.
Unfortunately, thousands of elderly residents are neglected and abused by nursing home facilities every year. In fact, one out of every four nursing homes in America is cited on an annual basis for causing injury or death to a resident. When nursing home abuse occurs, it should be fought aggressively and without compromise. Your loved one deserves justice, and negligent nursing homes need to be held accountable for endangering the lives of their residents.
Nursing home neglect may not always be intentional, but it is never acceptable. Even a seemingly minor instance of neglect can swiftly lead to the injury or untimely death of an elderly resident. Some residents may be unaware of the abuse they have suffered, while others are simply afraid to report it out of fear of repercussions.
If you suspect your loved one may be suffering from nursing home abuse or neglect in New Jersey, please contact our experienced New Jersey nursing home abuse lawyers today. We can help you investigate the facility and fight for fair compensation on behalf of your loved one.
