    Pennsylvania Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) & Nursing Homes

    During the coronavirus pandemic, nursing homes have been especially hit by widespread infection and death among elderly residents across Pennsylvania. In some instances, nursing homes may be in violation of basic protocols and procedures, such as failure to monitor or provide reasonable care. Family members of deceased nursing home residents who succumbed to a coronavirus infection may have legal rights to seek compensation for the treatment their loved one received at the nursing home as well as the loss of their loved one.

    Outside of the Covid epidemic, incidents of mistreatment of elderly people in nursing homes have been on the rise, especially as profit interests lead to staffing cuts and substandard levels of care.

    Many elderly people are needlessly injured through inattentive or substandard care in nursing homes. Injuries from falls, improper restraints, careless administration of medication, painful bedsores, and failure to recognize and treat life-threatening medical conditions are all too common.

    Fighting for Victims of Abuse & Neglect

    Our elder abuse attorneys fight for victims and families against nursing facilities and health care providers that cause harm as a result of their negligence or wrongdoing. Our attorneys handle the full range of cases involving nursing home abuse and neglect, including:

    • Physical abuse or neglect
    • Financial exploitation
    • Emotional abuse

    Like hospitals and other healthcare providers, nursing homes are required to provide care which meets the acceptable standards. We are familiar with the standard of care demanded, as well as the many state and federal regulations which govern the delivery of that care in nursing homes. If you feel that an elderly loved one has been injured due to negligent care or supervision in a nursing home, we can help you not only to get answers to your concerns, but also to make claims for appropriate compensation for any injuries caused.

    Amended Law Helps Patients File Pennsylvania Medical Malpractice Claims, Effective January 1, 2023

    As of January 1, 2023, a change to Pennsylvania's Rules of Civil Procedure will give patients the ability to choose where to file their medical malpractice lawsuits. Previously, patients were required to file medical malpractice claims in the county where the negligent conduct occurred. In January, cases may be filed in any county where 1. the defendant can be served (i.e., does business, has an office, etc.), 2. the negligent conduct took place, or 3. a relevant transaction or event took place.
