Hunterdon, Somerset And Warren County Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

You might have a suspicion that something very wrong is going on where your loved one lives. Or he or she has told you outright about mistreatment by nursing home staff.

Regardless of the circumstances, it is essential that you prevent any abuse — verbal, physical or sexual — from continuing against your family member in a nursing home. While authorities often get involved and criminal action may result from an investigation, an experienced lawyer can help your loved one obtain compensation for the nursing home's negligent or even intentional behavior. While no amount of money can ever undo injuries, it can assist your loved one in getting the medical and psychological care he or she may need. Our firm is committed to helping our New Jersey clients get it.

If you suspect that abuse is taking place at a nursing home, call 800-745-8931 to speak with attorney Anthony J. Murgatroyd. Our firm can quickly begin investigating allegations and preparing a legal case.

Understand Your Loved One's Rights

Both federal and state laws say that nursing home residents have the right to be free from physical, sexual and verbal abuse. Those same laws provide that a nursing home must ensure that all claims of abuse are thoroughly investigated and that all suspected cases of resident abuse are reported to the Department of Health and Senior Services within 72 hours. This may not always occur, but it need not go undetected.

Our firm has been handling nursing home abuse claims for decades. Through interviews with other residents and scrupulous review of the resident's chart, we have detected and verified unreported abuse.
