Stop Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

When you admit your elderly loved one into a nursing home or elder care facility, it is already a very emotional and difficult situation. You are trusting the staff and administration of the nursing home to provide your loved one with at the very least reasonable care. When this trust is broken and your loved one is neglected or even abused, it is understandably a very angering and frustrating situation. There are legal steps that you can take to seek justice on behalf of your loved one.

Through a personal injury claim, you can seek damages for medical bills, emotional pain, physical suffering and more. In the worst of cases in which an elderly loved one passed away from the neglect or abuse, a wrongful death claim can be pursued.

At the Lakewood and Barnegat, New Jersey, law firm of Hendrickson & Edelstein, Attorneys at Law, we strive in providing both compassionate and experienced personal injury and medical malpractice representation for each and every one of our clients.
