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.
In response to the outbreak, states may pass laws restricting these legal rights. As of April 2020, New York is expected to pass a law making it more difficult for patients to sue doctors for coronavirus treatment. So it’s critical to seek help from a medical malpractice and personal injury law firm to identify the legal and medical issues as soon as possible. Contact our law firm to get help now. Since 2016, our law firm has been achieved the Best Law Firm rating by U.S. News & World Report in the areas of Personal Injury Law and Medical Malpractice Law.

Fighting for Victims of Abuse & Neglect
As our population ages, more and more people enter nursing homes. Consequently, the incidents of mistreatment of elderly people in nursing homes has been on the rise, especially as profit interests have lead to staffing cuts and has affected the level 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.
