Elder Abuse Attorneys in Red Bank, NJ
Nursing Home Injury Lawyers Protect Your Loved Ones When They Are Being Neglected or Abused While in the Care of Others
Elder abuse and neglect are both serious problems in New Jersey and across the country. We move our aging or infirm family members into nursing homes where we expect them to be properly cared for. Instead, many of them end up injured, become ill or even die because of the way they are treated. If your loved one is suffering from abuse or neglect and has sustained nursing home injuries while in the care of a New Jersey nursing home, that facility should be held accountable.
At the law firm of Drazin and Warshaw, P.C., we have more than 65 years of experience in handling medical malpractice cases, including those involving elder abuse. Our Brick lawyers have extensive medical knowledge and are able to identify cases of abuse and neglect. They use this knowledge to clearly communicate the injury and suffering your loved one is experiencing to the defense or to a jury if your case goes to court.
Our law firm can dedicate the necessary resources to every case we accept. Our attorneys build lasting relationships with our clients and gain an in-depth understanding of how this negligent treatment is affecting not only the individual but also the whole family. We have a long track record of verdicts and settlements.
We are well known in the legal community for only bringing legitimate claims against those accused of negligence. This reputation means our cases are taken seriously by the opposition and by other members of the legal establishment. While this can potentially be to our clients’ advantage during pretrial negotiations, we are adamant that our clients are treated fairly throughout the process and we will take their cases to court if appropriate compensation is not agreed upon.
Holding Monmouth County, NJ Nursing Homes Responsible for Their Treatment of Patients
Nursing home injury can frequently be the result of abuse or neglect. Common indicators of abuse or neglect may include:
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Bed sores
- Lack of proper nutrition
- Complaints of attacks by staff or other residents
- Complaints of theft by staff or other residents
- Finding your family member left in their own waste
Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for nursing homes to brush these issues off by claiming that “this just happens at this age.” These issues need to be taken seriously. If you believe your loved one is being abused or neglected, you need to speak with one of our attorneys.
We conduct a thorough investigation of your family member’s medical records, as well as the nursing home or care facility, to determine where the negligence is occurring. We believe in taking on the giants to prevent these same abuses from occurring to others in the future and have been successful in forcing changes for the better in these institutions.
