Our lawyers are seeing more and more cases of nursing home negligence in eastern Pennsylvania, including bed sores or decubitus ulcers, malnutrition, dehydration, overdosing of medication, repeated trips to the emergency room, and other signs of neglect or abuse.
Nursing home negligence is a serious health issue that deserves to be investigated. Bed sores resulting from a patient being allowed to remain in a bed or wheelchair for long periods of time without being repositioned can become infected and can even cause death.
If you think your parent or loved one is a victim of neglect or abuse in a nursing home, contact us. If the case passes our initial review, we will obtain nursing home and medical records. Our lawyers will have the documentation reviewed by nursing home consultants who are very familiar with the medical care and physical attention that nursing home residents should receive. If we find violations of nursing home regulations, we will get the state of Pennsylvania involved to correct those conditions. Our lawyers will also do a background check of the nursing home to find out if it is currently operating under a consent decree with the state of Pennsylvania for past violations.
The goal of our investigation is to find out if there is anything the nursing home is not doing correctly and properly. Not every case of injury is the result of abuse or neglect, and we never charge clients for the expenses of investigating the case unless we make a financial recovery.
Our nursing home negligence team is led by Steven Barrett who is known for his professionalism, trial skills and collective jury verdicts in the tens of millions of dollars. Beyond recovering money for their clients, their goal is justice in having professionals and companies stop committing negligence and injuring people like you.
Our lawyers offer a free initial consultation for personal injury cases. Contact HRMM&L to set up an appointment.
