You can restore dignity to your relative's twilight years by contacting experienced nursing home attorneys with a reputation for results in these cases.

Schuylkill County Elder Abuse Attorneys Dedicated to Protecting Your Rights

We do not simply refer victims of nursing home errors to other law firms. Instead, we have built our firm on the principle that every patient deserves to be listened to and treated at all times with respect and the best possible medical and nursing care. Anything short of that which causes injury or death is simply unacceptable and must be held accountable.

Examples of nursing home neglect include falls that occur because too many patients are being cared for by too few staff; needed medications that are ignored or improperly given; and bedsores that become infectious because nursing home personnel were inattentive to a patient.

Act now to ensure that your senior loved one's health is protected and interests are safeguarded. Call Fanelli, Evans & Patel for the answers and results you deserve. 800-858-1532, toll free.

90 Years of Combined Experience With Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Cases

The skilled trial lawyers of Fanelli, Evans & Patel have secured significant verdicts and settlements on behalf of their nursing home and medical malpractice clients across the state. We work hard to hold negligent parties accountable for their harmful actions when they betray your family's trust.

If your family has been affected by any of these forms of nursing home neglect or abuse, we will do everything we can to help you:

  • Bedsores (pressure sores and decubitus ulcers)
  • Unexplained falls
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Broken bones
  • Infections
  • Medication errors
  • Wandering off (elopement)
  • Exposure, including hypothermia
  • Physical or sexual abuse

Frail, incapacitated nursing home residents depend upon the care of nurses, physical therapists and other staff. These professionals should keep accurate records of your family member's condition, reporting falls and regularly turning them in their beds or wheelchairs to prevent bedsores. When you find that these important duties are being overlooked, our law firm can investigate, negotiate with insurers and if necessary, litigate to protect your rights in court.

Given your financial investment in your relative's nursing home or assisted living care, and considering today's uncertain economy, we understand your worries over the costs of quality legal representation. This is why we offer our services on a contingency fee basis. You owe no attorney fee unless we win your case.
