Types of Nursing Home Injuries and Accidents

More Than 70 Combined Years of Personal Injury Legal Experience in Philadelphia

Visitors to a nursing home can most often see that common sense and kindness, along with a commitment to hard work and diligent care, will usually suffice to ensure that the care needed by nursing home residents is provided. The state of Pennsylvania, however, works to ensure that all of the needs of long-term care facility residents are met via extensive, clear and detailed legal regulations. When these regulations are negligently ignored or staff members commit overt abuse and injuries or death result, family members have legal recourse through a lawsuit.
