Nursing Home Attorneys Committed to Protecting the Elderly

As attorneys who represent individuals and families in nursing home negligence matters, we know that you can never plan for an incident where a loved one becomes injured or dies unexpectedly at a facility.  During these stressful times, we appreciate the need to access concise and accurate information regarding the laws and regulations applicable to their care. The pages below have information on the laws, regulations and links to state agencies that oversee nursing facilities within each state. After accessing state pages, you may then refine your information by navigating to city-specific pages.

When it Comes Time to Take Legal Action: We Are Here For You

While there may be some situations that may be rectified with the intervention of a family member acting as a patient advocate, there are some situations involving patient injury or death that cannot likely be fairly resolved between you and a facility where an incident occurred.  Our law firm is committed to providing you with the legal representation you deserve to hold negligent facilities accountable.

The decision concerning the engagement of a lawyer to represent the needs of your family is indeed a personal decision. While it is within your rights to refrain from any type of litigation, mistreatment or abuse of a nursing home patient should not take place in any facility— at any time.

Our firm represents individuals—never companies or corporations.  Our nursing home negligence cases frequently involve:

  • Development of pressure sores or bed sores
  • Falls resulting fractured bones or internal injuries
  • Medication errors
  • Sexual abuse by staff or other residents
  • Physical abuse or sudden injuries
  • Untimely death of residents

We invite you to contact our office for a free review of your situation with a lawyer who has experience with situations similar to yours. All cases are handled on a contingency fee basis where there is never a fee charged unless we are successful in recovering for your family. As leaders in nursing home litigation, we have a trusted network of attorneys across the county whom we respect and trust. Even if our office cannot assist, we can help connect you with an attorney in your area who can assist you.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
    ★★★★★
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
    ★★★★★
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
    ★★★★★
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
    ★★★★★
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
