Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse
The decision to trust a nursing home or assisted living facility with the care of our loved ones is a difficult but often necessary choice. It is not a decision that is taken lightly by the loved ones of nursing home residents; it is made with the assumption that they will receive quality care from caring professionals they can trust.
When that trust is broken, it is devastating for the victims and their loved ones. Fortunately, there are legal options for holding individuals and facilities accountable for neglect and abuse in nursing homes.
At Ventura, Miesowitz, Keough & Warner, P.C., our lawyers have been fighting negligence in Summit and throughout New Jersey for more than 30 years. This includes taking on nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other care providers when their negligence results in:
- Elder abuse
- Sexual abuse
A Sad Situation For All
In many instances of elder neglect, no one sets out specifically to do harm. Many facilities are understaffed, resulting in well-meaning employees failing to uphold the standard of care that regulates the industry. In such cases it is important to hold the facilities and companies themselves responsible, as their decision to cut corners to boost profit results in injuries, abuse and neglect.
