By expanding its litigation services, the firm will be able to help seniors, and their loved ones, bring claims against negligent nursing home institutions and caregivers, and get compensation for their injuries. The firm takes cases on a contingency basis and only recoups legal fees if the client wins their case.

A study conducted by the general Accounting Office of the federal government concluded that there were insufficient safeguards in place at the federal and state levels to protect nursing home residents. This means the 1.5 million elderly individuals living in over 17,000 USA nursing homes may be at risk. Anyone who suspects elder abuse or neglect should confer with a licensed attorney.

Elder abuse may involve a range of behaviors. The firm has clients that have endured physical injuries, emotional harm, financial exploitation, abandonment, and neglect. Common signs of abuse include broken bones, malnutrition, ulcers or sores, bruising, and unexplained falls. Often the behavior is intentional, but can result from understaffing or inadequate training.

A nursing home is responsible for ensuring each resident is cared for properly, and should face litigation when it fails to do so. The attorneys at Silberstein, Awad & Miklos, P.C. understand the various Federal and State regulations that nursing homes must follow to maintain their license, and can help clients bring a claim if those rules have been violated.
