Trusting our loved ones to the care of nursing home staff can be difficult; when we do so, we expect that their comfort, safety and overall well-being will be fully addressed. Because of the medical needs of the elderly, frailty and dependence quality care is extremely important. Tragically, many studies show that the incidence of neglect and abuse in nursing homes is all too common. The National Center on Elder Abuse indicates that as many as one in 10 elders is neglected or abused in nursing homes, but admits that many instances are unreported.
Because of this incidence, the civil justice system is the greatest means for obtaining and bolstering accountability.
If a loved one was injured or killed because of nursing home negligence or abuse, we at Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., will bring our 25-plus years of experience to help you build the strongest possible case to maximize compensation.
