Home Neglect Lawyers
Making the decision to place a loved one in a nursing home can be very difficult. Whether the placement of parents or loved ones is due to a short-term illness, or declining ability to care for themselves, you have the right to expect that they will receive proper care.
Nursing home staff and the companies that operate them are legally obligated to provide an atmosphere that is physically and mentally safe. Unfortunately, the desire for monetary gain, poor management decisions, understaffing, inadequate training or failure to oversee workers can lead to illegal abuse or neglect.
The lawyers at Kanter, Bernstein & Kardon saw a need early on for a system of checks and balances to provide proper care of people in Pennsylvania nursing homes. Since lawsuits for neglect and abuse issues of the elderly first became possible nearly two decades ago, our attorneys have been on the leading edge of making nursing home companies accountable for harm they cause.
If you have a loved one in a nursing home, common problems you should watch for include:
- Slips and falls
- Medication errors
- Bruises or injuries of unknown origin
- Missed medical diagnoses
