Nursing Home Injuries

When the Worst Has Happened to Someone You Love

Under New Jersey law, residents of nursing homes have the right to expect dignity, clean facilities and assurances of safety. Most nursing homes provide a wonderful service, taking care of the needs of our elderly parents and loved ones. Unfortunately, however, the aging population, funding cuts and lack of trained professional staff often results in negligent treatment.

Winning a Nursing Home Negligence Case Means Looking Beyond the Injuries

The Law Offices of Michael P. Burakoff, P.A., can help you fight to protect the rights of your elderly family member who has suffered emotional or physical harm because of nursing home abuse. Nursing home injury cases are generally a case of premises liability, but they may also include medical negligence and professional malpractice.

Winning a settlement or jury trial for damages requires more than just presenting the facts. We investigate the history of the nursing home the management policies regarding staff and residents. We work with professional witnesses and experts to help us prepare and present the details proving that abuse and neglect resulted in the injuries — and the injuries resulted in harm and loss.

If a loved one in your family has been injured in a nursing home, contact an experienced attorney.
