Gaithersburg Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

Gaithersburg Nursing Home Abuse LawyersThe Gaithersburg nursing home abuse attorneys of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC specialize in representing clients who have been injured due to neglectful or abusive nursing care. Over the last decade, we have seen an alarming rise in the number of injuries that have resulted from a substandard quality of care. One of the ways to combat this is to hold negligent nursing centers accountable for their actions, but we can also prevent future cases of abuse by educating others on common nursing concerns and steering them away from centers that don’t provide the care our loved ones deserve. The information below is meant to help you avoid placing your loved one in such facilities.

Gaithersburg Senior Demographics

The city of Gaithersburg is split into two distinct sections on the east and west side of I-270 and is home to many research and biotechnology companies that comprise the Interstate 270 Technology Corridor. These companies include Lockheed Martin, IBM, MedImmune and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The city has seen explosive growth in recent years due to its ties to such prominent companies. Its population rose from just under 60,000 to almost 67,000 over only four years.

Roughly 9.5% of the population is made up of senior citizens and many more residents are preparing to retire. Those who are looking to remain active, healthy and social can turn to the Benjamin Gaither Center, which provides support groups, computer classes, sports programs, a book club, strength training, flexibility training, ballroom dances, poker games, a billiards hall and more for a nominal annual fee of $40. Seniors can also participate in regular blood pressure screenings and receive attention from an on-site nurse to ensure that their health is in good order.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
