National Nursing Home Lawyers Fight for the Legal Rights of Abuse Victims in Philadelphia, PA

Philadelphia, PA – Due to their age, physical conditions, or unique disabilities, nursing home residents have difficulty caring for themselves or making independent decisions. The mental and physical limitations make them reliant on caretakers, nurses, or home aides to perform routine care or offer medical attention. While most providers care for the elderly respectfully, nursing home residents still face abuse and neglect, which leave them injured. National Nursing Home Lawyers is devoted to fighting for victims by providing personalized legal support and focused attention. 

The law firm comprises a team of experienced elder law attorneys who pursue legal action for nursing home negligence, elder abuse, and wrongful death lawsuits. The attorneys handle cases of dehydration and malnutrition, especially for victims with memory loss or other physical diseases. The team holds providers responsible for failing to remind/encourage the consumption of food, water, supplements, or vitamins to maintain regular weight/measurements. 

Besides food/fluid intake, National Nursing Home Lawyers represent nursing home residents vulnerable to skin, respiratory, and urinary tract infections. They understand that treatable infections result in sepsis, organ failure, shock, and death. For this reason, they conduct extensive investigations or challenge medical results. Nursing home residents rely on prescription medication for health and wellness. While some medication requires ongoing lab testing to verify the proper dosage, others have side effects that need monitoring. The Philadelphia nursing home abuse lawyer takes on claims of prescription errors that have led to blood thinning, additional medical attention, and physical/mental injuries.

When providers delay responding to a resident’s needs, it may cause them to fracture the hip, leg, or skull from a fall. Even though nursing homes need systems/policies to minimize slips, trips, and falls, most providers fail to follow them, resulting in potentially life-threatening illnesses. In such a case, National Nursing Home Lawyers review Pennsylvania’s health facility codes before pursuing the negligent providers or insurance companies. Additionally, the law firm represents victims of bed sores with difficulty turning themselves. Bed sores are often a sign of nursing home abuse due to inadequate staffing levels, improper attention, and infrequent position changes. 

Once contacted, National Nursing Home Lawyers conduct extensive consultation to listen to a victim’s needs and gather information necessary to file and pursue a claim. They then identify the correct defendants, examine medical records/legal documents, prove negligence, employ the services of professional witnesses, and create a custom legal strategy for settlement/trial. Throughout the process, the attorneys communicate with the victims/their families, address any concerns, and give case updates. 

To educate and empower family members of residents in nursing homes, the National Nursing Home Lawyers have written insightful articles. They have topics that speak on the occurrences of nursing home abuse, approaches to suing a nursing home, and many more.
