Nursing Home Abuse
Has a loved one been a victim of Nursing Home Abuse in Pennsylvania?
Nursing Home Negligence is a growing problem in the United States. While many facilities provide good care and a safe environment, family members and loved ones residing in assisted living facilities and nursing homes are sometimes vulnerable to various forms of harm due to abuse, neglect, poor medical care and medical mistakes because of untrained or uncaring staff. All too often these problems are made worse because these older adults are often not able to fully communicate the severity of the situation to their family and friends.
If you have a loved one that you believe has been a victim of nursing home abuse then they may be entitled to monetary damages for pain and suffering, payment or reimbursement of medical expenses and punitive damages in instances where it has been determined that the conduct in question was careless, reckless or malicious.
