Why Do You Need A Nursing Home Litigation Attorney?
Our lawyer has observed that the agencies that regulate nursing homes in Pennsylvania are increasingly overwhelmed with the volume of cases. This means, unfortunately, that people often need to consult with a skilled nursing home litigation lawyer to enforce the laws and regulations and protect the rights of seniors. Our attorney has helped people with a wide range of nursing home issues, including:
- Elder abuse, such as systematic denial of basic care
- Elder neglect, or abandonment
- Wrongful death from abuse or neglect
- Bed sores from abuse or neglect
- Dehydration from abuse or neglect
- Malnutrition from abuse or neglect
- Failure to administer medications
Our elder law attorney will conduct a thorough review of the possible abuse, obtaining copies of documents, and helping family members decide whether to proceed with litigation against a nursing home. This is a major decision, and our skilled nursing home litigation attorney can help. Additionally, our estate planning lawyer can advise you on asset protection and Medicaid planning.
