Ensuring Accountability for Elder Neglect
When we place our elders in assisted living, it comes from a place of love. When we can no longer provide the level of care our family member needs, we have no option but to trust that the nursing home staff will do its job with the proper skill and attention. When nursing homes abuse or neglect our loved one, they abuse our trust, causing unnecessary pain and discomfort to the elder.
We understand the anger that families feel when they first learn that their loved one has suffered from neglect. At Simon Eisenberg & Baum, we are passionate about holding wrongdoers accountable for the harm they cause elders. Our nursing home abuse lawyers are experienced at protecting the rights of the vulnerable and obtaining suitable compensation for the harm caused.
