Nursing Home Injuries

Tragic and Preventable Nursing Home Injuries

A society is judged by the way it treats the most vulnerable. If an elderly person or vulnerable adult is placed in a nursing home, it is usually done by loving family members, with the understanding that the resident will be well cared for in a safe manner with all of their basic needs being well met. At the very least, people understand that there are government guidelines which dictate the minimal level of care with which our loved ones should be treated. Sadly, these minimum standards are met. The management may be well educated and respectful, while the staff is under-trained, underpaid and under-supervised.

At Alekman DiTusa, LLC, located in Springfield, Massachusetts, we take our legal responsibility seriously when we represent clients whose loved one has suffered a personal injury in a nursing home.

If we take your case, there are no legal fees unless and until we get a settlement.

Respectful Treatment for Vulnerable People

Individuals in a nursing home may have a wide range of medical issues, including dementia, terminal illness or paralysis. These patients may be very young or very old. No matter their condition, they deserve respectful treatment.

Our attorneys’ interactions with family members of a nursing home abuse victim are just as respectful. We understand the feeling of powerlessness or guilt that may exist and work to receive compensation for your loved one’s injury which, hopefully, also has an effect on the nursing home’s future behavior.
