Pennsylvania Lawyers Fighting Nursing Home Neglect
When we send our parents, grandparents or other loved ones to a nursing care facility, we expect that they will be treated with nurturing kindness and will be provided good care. Unfortunately, nursing homes too often fall short of this expectation. Negligence and abuse is far more abundant than we would like to believe.
The results of nursing home neglect and abuse are serious and include:
- Bed sores
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Broken bones
- Spinal injuries
- Head and brain injuries
At Hof & Reid LLC, we aggressively pursue compensation on behalf of people injured by nursing home neglect and abuse. If your parent, sibling or grandparent has been injured as a result of nursing home abuse or neglect, contact our experienced personal injury attorneys to learn more about your family member’s legal rights and remedies.
In serving clients throughout Pennsylvania, we maintain law offices in Bethlehem and Easton. To schedule a free consultation at either of our law offices, call 610-628-2355.
Why Do Nursing Home Injuries Occur?
Bed sores and slip-and-fall injuries are two of the most common types of nursing home injuries. These and other injuries are often the result of caretaker neglect. In some cases, the nursing home simply fails to staff the home adequately with enough workers to appropriately monitor and care for its patients. In other cases, the nursing home fails to adequately screen and monitor its employees to ensure quality patient care is being provided by the staff.
