Tackling a Difficult Area of Personal Injury
Nursing home injury cases are extremely complex cases involving a number of factors. Levels of care differ from facility to facility, and nursing home workers are often poorly trained, inexperienced and underpaid. For these reasons, it is difficult to ensure proper care of elderly residents. Our firm uses its years of experience handling nursing home injury cases to win compensation for injuries and ensure better care standards are instituted in these facilities. We handle personal injury cases relating to the following:
- Elder abuse
- Decubitus ulcers, pressure ulcers and bedsores
- Falls resulting from failure to provide appropriate supervision
- Failure to monitor
- Medication issues
- Failure to check vitals
- Wrongful death
A Limited Window of Time
Under Pennsylvania law, there is a two-year statute of limitations for pursuing personal injury cases such as nursing home injury and abuse. Do not wait for an elder care facility’s response to an incident before seeking help from a nursing home injury attorney. Aggressively and efficiently pursuing your claim can bring about a resolution in a short time.
If you suspect that your parent, spouse, or loved one’s injuries or death was the result of improper supervision or substandard elder care, you can rely on Thomas E.
