Nursing Home

Experienced attorneys serving victims of nursing home and long-term care neglect.

Nursing Home

As experienced medical malpractice lawyers, we at Pellettieri Rabstein & Altman understand the difficult situation faced by nursing home and assisted living patients who have suffered preventable, needless injuries at the hands of those who were supposed to care for them. Regulations and standards that govern such facilities exist to measure whether staff maintain the level of care required for patients there. New Jersey malpractice law recognizes that when care by nurses or staff at these facilities falls outside such standards, a lawsuit for monetary damages for the injury or condition can be filed against them. The firm files these lawsuits on a contingency fee basis, so that we are not paid a fee unless we are successful in obtaining a recovery on your behalf.

The medical malpractice attorneys at Pellettieri Rabstein & Altman have represented patients in these facilities for many kinds of injuries, such as:

  • Bed sores/ulcers
  • Preventable fall downs
  • Fractures
  • Malnutrition
  • Infections
  • Abuse
  • Wrongful death
  • And others

Many of these facilities are private, for-profit organizations that can be understaffed. With the population aging and living longer, more individuals than ever find themselves needing care at nursing homes or long term care facilities. The combination of more patients and less staff can lead to some of the injuries or conditions mentioned above, as well as others. Pellettieri Rabstein & Altman has been successful in obtaining monetary awards for patients and their families in these cases.

Since 1929, this firm has worked to a build a track record of smart, responsive and effective representation. Our lawyers have earned the respect of Courts, Judges, and other lawyers. More importantly, we have earned the approval of our clients. Four out of five of our clients find us through friends, relatives, or our reputation. Through settlement or trial of legal claims, the medical malpractice lawyers at Pellettieri Rabstein & Altman have obtained millions of dollars for their clients over the years.
