The Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Lawyers Network

Nursing Home Lawyers Network

Negligence and mistreatment occur in almost every
nursing home and elder care facility in the U.S.

It’s a fact of life that almost 43% of the U.S. population age sixty-five and older will reside in nursing homes at some point during their lives.

Every day, American families face difficult decisions about whether to move a loved one into a nursing home. Thousands of families trust their loved ones’ lives to nursing homes and elder care facilities, and many of those families find their trust broken.
A nursing home abuse lawyer can be of help in getting you and your loved ones the justice they deserve.


There are nearly 17,000 nursing homes in the United States that currently care for 1.6 million residents -- a figure expected to quadruple to 6.6 million residents by 2050. The quality of care provided by these nursing homes has been the subject of much scrutiny in recent years. Understaffing, inadequate training, and employee overworking and underpayment are a few of the shortfalls that result in poor treatment of residents. Because nursing home residents are dependent on staff members for most or all of their needs, such as food, water, medicine, toileting, grooming, stimulation and activity, they are very vulnerable to abuse and neglect. In order to help end the problem of nursing home negligence, we are counting on family members to take an active role in learning how to spot abuse and neglect. Nursing Home Injuries

What if your mother, father, grandparent, or other family member is a victim of abuse? Who can you turn to for legal guidance? Who will stand up for your loved one’s rights and make these people pay?

The principles of equal rights shouldn’t change with age. As family members, we trust that our loved ones will experience high levels of care, no matter which facility we choose. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Even after finding the “perfect” nursing home, there may be severe health and conduct violations that go undetected by most families.
