Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Lawyers

When you trust a parent or loved one to a nursing home facility, you do so with the expectation that they will be treated with the care, the competence and the respect they so richly deserve. The discovery that your family member has been the victim of neglect, malpractice or even abuse can be devastating.

If you know or even if you suspect that a family member has suffered neglect or abuse in a nursing home facility, take action to protect your family's rights and your safety. At the law office of Dallas W. Hartman, P.C. we represent clients throughout Pennsylvania from our offices in New Castle, Hermitage, Butler and Erie. We can help you fight in and out of the courtroom to hold negligent and abusive care providers responsible.

The Tragedy of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Our firm believes that all people who suffer unnecessarily as a result of ignorance, negligence or abuse have the right to hold the people responsible for damages accountable. Too often it is those without a voice, including nursing home residents, who suffer the most. It may come down to a situation where a loved one only suspects that something is wrong.

If you are that loved one, you may be facing the choice between hiring a professional to dig deeper or hoping for the best. You should know that if there is medical malpractice, abuse or neglect, it is unlikely to go away on its own.

Our lawyers can help you take on a wide range of nursing home cases, including:

  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Over medication
  • Sexual assault
  • Bed sores
  • Pressure sores
  • Physical or verbal abuse
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Improper supervision
  • Wandering and elopement

Second only to the state of Florida, Pennsylvania has one of the fastest aging populations in the nation. The need for care in conditions such as this can rapidly outpace the availability of outstanding care, and even a highly respected nursing home may hire someone who causes serious harm.
