Serious Injury Due To A Nursing Home Error?
Introducing Our Firm
The ugly fact about nursing home abuse is that most incidents are not the result of deliberate or malicious actions; they are simply the result of poor training, understaffing or overcrowding — three issues that could easily be addressed if profit was not the primary concern.
Do you suspect that an elderly relative is being abused or neglected in some way? If so, contact an experienced injury lawyer at Hoyt & Hoyt, PC, today at 973-292-2299 and schedule a free initial consultation.
At Hoyt & Hoyt, PC, we understand that taking care of the elderly and disabled is a difficult and often thankless job. We understand that staff members involved in these cases are not necessarily uncaring. Many of them simply have not been given the resources they need to do their jobs safely.
We also understand, however, that if incidents of neglect and abuse are not challenged, the understaffing, poor training and supervision problems found at many nursing homes will not get better and more people will be injured or die as a result. Our nursing home neglect practice includes cases involving:
- Physical abuse
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Decubitus ulcers
- Wandering injuries (bruises, abrasions, fractures, etc.)
- Medication errors
Attorney Jack Hoyt has had considerable experience with these and other types of nursing home abuse — experience that is invaluable regardless of the type of case you have. In addition, our firm has a physician on staff to help us evaluate the injuries and care issues involved in each case and to provide clients with answers, information and referrals to appropriate medical facilities or doctors if needed.
