Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

According to U.S. government statistics, more than 1.5 million Americans live in nursing homes. They need and deserve to have concerned caregivers and a safe environment. All too often, however, nursing home companies put profits over the needs and comfort of residents. When that happens, family members often call a law firm they can trust—Stephen J. Gordon & Associates in Worcester, Massachusetts, and Scottsdale, Arizona.

We can help you investigate your loved one’s situation dealing with nursing home negligence and determine what options are available. By holding the nursing home accountable, you may be able to keep other residents from being injured.

•  Inadequate Staffing: Nursing home companies sometimes do not hire enough staff or experienced staff to care for residents.
•  Inadequate Training: A nursing home that fails to train employees puts the residents at risk. Fragile, elderly people need constant, careful treatment.
•  Nursing Home Abuse: Inadequate background checks or poor supervision can lead to abuse of nursing home residents.
•  Nursing Home Injuries: Our nursing home neglect lawyers have handled cases involving a wide range of injuries from bed sores to unexplained fractures.
•  Nursing Home Product Liability: When nursing home equipment is defective, they can cause dangerous falls, choking, and other life-threatening injuries.

Thousands of nursing home residents are injured or die each year because of nursing home neglect. Stephen J. Gordon & Associates is dedicated to providing information and legal representation to the victims of nursing home neglect and abuse and their families.
