Representing Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Victims in Philadelphia

We Speak up for Those Who Cannot Speak for Themselves

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 the neglect of their needs.

Our Philadelphia nursing home abuse lawyers at Kanter, Bernstein & Kardon, P.C. saw a need early on for checks and balances to provide proper care of people in Pennsylvania nursing homes. Two decades ago, when most firms turned away these cases, our firm began to prosecute them and since then have been on the cutting edge of holding nursing home companies accountable for the harm they cause.
