When do you need a nursing home abuse lawyer ?

No one ever expects someone they care about to be injured, abused or neglected in a nursing home, but unfortunately abuses do occur, every day and in many ways. When someone you care about has been a victim of nursing home abuse, the problems can be overwhelming. An attorney can help to advise you of your loved one’s legal rights, tell you what they are entitled to, and what action to take.

In Pennsylvania, there is a specific time limit that a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect has to file a suit against the nursing home. This time period varies based on the type of claim; however, the general rule is two (2) years from the date the abuse or neglect occurred. Since the time limits may vary, we recommend that you consider having an Attorney represent your loved one’s interests. We say “consider,” because not every claim requires an attorney.
