Pennsylvania Nursing Home Neglect Lawsuits
People are living longer, healthier and more productive lives than ever before. However, there is also an increase in age related illnesses. Some of these can be Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Disease and injuries due to a stroke. When caring for a loved one becomes too cumbersome for family members it is not uncommon to contemplate a nursing home as an alternative. While nursing homes normally provide a safe and secure place for our loved ones to reside they can also care for our loved ones in a negligent manner. If a loved one has been injured while in a nursing home in southeastern Pennsylvania please contact a Media Pennsylvania Nursing Home Abuse Attorney.
