Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Compensation For Victims Of Nursing Home Mistreatment
Elderly people are naturally more susceptible to physical harm than younger people. Nursing homes exist for the purpose of providing special care for vulnerable senior citizens. Unfortunately, some of them fail to fulfill this purpose. If a parent, grandparent or other loved one has been the victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, our lawyers can help.
At Phillips, Phillips & Smith-Delach, P.C., in Washington, PA, and Pittsburgh, PA, our lawyers have nearly 100 years of combined experience. That experience is teamed with individualized attention for everyone we represent. What that means to you is that you will work directly with a lawyer who will keep you updated on the progress of your claim, consult you at every turn and keep you involved in the decision-making process to ensure the results being pursued are the results that meet your specific needs.
