Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect in New Jersey

Experienced Attorneys Fighting for You & Your Loved Ones

Tragically, countless nursing home patients are harmed each year by abuse or neglect from the very people entrusted with their care. If you suspect that your loved one may be suffering because of the negligence or wrongdoing of their care facility, it is important to take notice and contact a dedicated New Jersey personal injury attorney.

There are four main types of harm that nursing home residents can sustain:

  • Neglect: when nursing home workers knowingly or accidentally fail to properly feed, clothe, or bathe patients, or when they fail to fully care for patients' medical conditions
  • Physical Abuse: the most common types of physical abuse include beating, shoving, sexual abuse, and the forced ingestion of medicine or food
  • Mental Abuse: Patients suffer from mental abuse when they are verbally or emotionally threatened, insulted, humiliated, mistreated, or denied their rights to exercise personal choice
  • Financial Abuse: this refers to nursing home workers coercing inclusion into the residents’ wills and stealing money and valuable possessions from their rooms.

Warning Signs of Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

In many cases, patients who are being abused or neglected by their caretakers are afraid to speak up and reveal the situation to their loved ones. There are certain red flags, however, that may indicate your elderly relative is being mistreated or harmed in their care facility.

Some of the signs of mistreatment include:

  • Poor hygiene
  • Sudden change in mood or temperament
  • Sudden change in weight
  • Loss of hair
  • Unresponsiveness
  • Emotional detachment
  • Bruising or bleeding
  • Unexplained cuts, abrasions, burns, broken bones, or infections
  • Unexplained trips to the emergency room
  • Disappearance of personal possessions and valuables
  • Unusual or unexplained financial transactions

Common Questions

  • How is a personal injury claim different from a personal injury lawsuit?

    If you wish to hold the person responsible for your injuries liable, it is important to know the differences between a claim and a lawsuit. A personal injury claim is the first step, when your attorney files against the parties responsible or liable for the injury. A personal injury lawsuit comes after the claim, taking place in a court of law, if the original claim did not yield the compensation desired by the plaintiffs.

  • What is negligence?

    Negligence is one of the key aspects of any personal injury case. Negligence occurs when a person or party does not act with the proper amount of care and caution that a reasonable person would use to prevent harm or injury to another individual, or when the person or party does something harmful that a careful and reasonable person would not have done in a similar situation.

  • How important is negligence to my case?

    Negligence is perhaps the most integral factor in an injury claim or lawsuit, and in order to fight for justice against the liable party (also called the defendant), you must first be able to prove their negligence and that it is the direct cause of your injuries.
