When we entrust our elderly or disabled loved ones to the care of a nursing home, it is because we believe that they will be safe and that their special needs will be met. We expect that nursing home personnel will follow accepted standards of care and prevent accidental injury.
Unfortunately, nursing home residents sometimes fall through the cracks and suffer illness or injury as a result of nursing home malpractice. Please contact a highly-skilled New Jersey attorney if your family member was injured or neglected in a rehab center or long-term care facility.
Your mother, father, husband or wife may have fallen out of bed, wandered off, or developed an infected wound as a result of a decubitus ulcer (bed sores or pressure sores). Worst of all, he or she may have become sick or died as a result of a preventable medication error.
In many instances of injury and infection in a nursing home, the cause can be directly attributed to a lack of supervision or medical malpractice. Sometimes, nursing home malpractice can result in disastrous consequences such as a fatality or the need for an amputation after an infection gets out of control. A fatal accident should be investigated by an experienced lawyer for the following reasons:
At Cerussi & Gunn, P.C., we are a well-established medical malpractice law firm whose trial experience covers both the state and federal court systems of New Jersey and New York. We take great pride in representing plaintiffs in cases of hospital malpractice and nursing home malpractice.
Our attorneys, Mr. Cerussi, Mr. Gunn, Ms. Gannon and/or Mr. Pierguidi only handle select cases after meeting with prospective clients. They are very selective about the cases that they take on because they want to devote their energy to those matters in which they can make the greatest difference for the injured and the bereaved.
