Nursing Home Negligence
We Represent Clients on a Contingency Fee Basis · No-Cost Case Evaluation
Nursing homes in New Jersey are required to meet a standard of care regarding resident health, comfort and social life. When an elderly or infirmed resident is injured, he or she is often unable or unwilling to speak up to protect his or her rights. It is usually a loving family member who recognizes the fear or confusion resulting from the negligence or misconduct of the staff.
If your loved one residing in a nursing home or long-term care facility in New Jersey has exhibited signs of injury or fear because of another resident or staff member, don’t wait to see what will happen. Many nursing homes have a very poor record of resident safety. The only way to affect change for your loved one and other residents is to seek compensation on their behalf.
Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy, LLP is one of New Jersey’s leading civil litigation law firms. We have an excellent record of fighting on behalf of people who have nowhere else to turn for justice when they have been injured because of negligence.
Contact our NJ medical lawyers for a free consultation if your loved one indicates sign of injury or distress resulting from:
- Medication errors, harmful prescription drugs
- Wheelchair and van transport injuries
- Bedsores, pressure ulcers
- Infected cuts or open sores
- Hip fractures and fall injuries
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Injuries from assault by other resident or staff
- Verbal abuse
- Elopement, wandering off
Promising the Right to a Life With Dignity and Free From Fear
When your loved one moved into the care and shelter of a nursing home, he or she did not give up dignity and pride. This is a partial list from the New Jersey Nursing Home Residents’ Bill of Rights, published on the state’s official website:*
You have the right:
- To be offered choices and allowed to make decisions important to you
- To receive services with reasonable accommodations to individual needs and preferences
- To participate in the planning of your care and services
- To self-administer medications
- To accept or refuse care and treatment and to choose your health care providers, including your doctor and pharmacy
- To manage your own personal finances, or to be kept informed of your finances if you choose to let someone else manage them for you
- To refuse to perform work or services for the facility
