New Jersey Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

When our family members begin to age and need care, we trust that the professionals who work in nursing home facilities will take proper care of our loved ones. Sadly, this is not always the case. Though hard to believe that an individual would abuse an elderly vulnerable person, nursing home abuse does occur.

 

If a loved one has been abused at a nursing home, contact our New Jersey medical malpractice attorneys immediately.  Our New Jersey Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys represent those who are harmed by nursing home abuse in all New Jersey counties including the counties of Mercer and Middlesex, or any other county in the state.

 

Our New Jersey Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys use the civil justice system to not only hold those who actually commit the abuse accountable, but also to hold the nursing home or any managers in the nursing home accountable for the abuse of a patient.

 

Obviously, if an individual is abused, the person who actually commits the abuse should be held accountable for the abuse in which they inflicted. However, under the laws of the state of New Jersey, the employer, specifically, the nursing home, may be additionally held liable for the abuse. This legal concept is called respondent superior. It essentially holds that in some circumstances, an employer may be responsible for the acts of their employees.  Additionally, the nursing home or managers may be held liable for failing to properly train and or supervise the employee who committed the abuse.

 

Regardless of the specific circumstances, it is important that you contact our law firm as soon as possible. Our attorneys represent individuals who are harmed and or abused in nursing homes throughout the state of New Jersey including abuse, which occurs in the cities of East Brunswick and Monroe, and all other New Jersey cities.

 

In some instances, the nursing home may be owned or run by the state of New Jersey. If this is the case, and you wish to file a civil action against the nursing home, you may be required to file a tort claims notice. A tort claims notice is a filing that is required if the defendant is a state or governmental entity. A tort claims notice must be filed within 90 days or the individual may lose his or her right to file an action against the state or public entity that owns and or operates the nursing home. The tort claims notice clearly demonstrates the importance of immediately contacting an attorney if a loved one is injured due to nursing home abuse.
