As our aging population grows, more families are faced with making decisions about long-term nursing care for ourselves, our parents and our grandparents. Families invest significant time and resources when choosing a nursing home for an elderly loved one who can no longer live independently.
Nursing homes have policies, procedures and staffing requirements that they must follow in order to ensure the safety and security of our loved ones. When these policies and procedures are not being properly followed, it can result in serious harm, including injuries, infections, emotional harm and even wrongful death.
Nursing home negligence can include improper supervision, personal hygiene neglect, medical neglect, emotional and social neglect and general neglect of basic needs.
Unfortunately, nursing home litigation can also include abuse, which is a specific intent to cause harm to a nursing home resident. It can include physical assault, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and improper use of restraints.
If you suspect any issues of neglect or abuse at a nursing home, you should consult with a nursing home negligence lawyer to discuss your options. In an emergency situation, you should immediately contact the police.
The lawyers at Hoffman Law have the expertise and experience needed to effectively represent you and your loved one in your nursing home negligence claim.
My partner and I were in a very serious accident that left me in the hospital’s ICU for several months. Shortly after, we met Jennifer. She was both compassionate and professional from our first meeting. It was reassuring to have her expertise as we proceeded with our accident claim. Following my partner’s tragic accident the following year, Jennifer continued to be supportive. I was happy to receive a great settlement in compensation for my injuries, and would not hesitate to recommend Jennifer to others in a similar situation. Jennifer’s support and guidance through this traumatic life experience made a world of difference.
I was extremely impressed with Jennifer’s work, organization skills and attention to detail. I love the way she works. She was a gift from God to us – an angel who came to our defense. She is unique and an inspiration. She helped our family out tremendously, and not just in relation to money she obtained for us (settling our case).
Jennifer was very professional and worked hard on my case. She took my over my file from a previous lawyer, and had limited time to sort everything out. She did not give up on my case, and moreover, did an excellent job! I was really fascinated by the outcome, and moreover, overwhelmed when I heard the final settlement. I want to thank Jennifer for her determination, analytical skills, and patience during the years she worked with me, and during the pre-trial, when she negotiated the final settlement. I am very grateful to have met Jennifer and to have her as my lawyer. I cannot imagine finding anyone better. I would not hesitate to recommend Jennifer to anyone in need of a sound, and highly professional lawyer.
