Nursing Homes Owe Residents A Certain Standard Of Care In Pennsylvania

Proving that a nursing home or its employees are liable for the injuries your loved ones have sustained involves more than showing that someone was careless. You must show that an employee breached the standard of care that was owed. We will work with you to uncover the facts that may tend to show there was a breach of this duty.

We Can Help You Seek Justice

We offer free consultations and accept cases on a contingent-fee basis in most situations. That means we only collect an attorney's fee if we recover compensation for you.
