Nursing Home Negligence

South New Jersey Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers

Injury or Abuse in a Nursing Home

Residents of a nursing home cannot always stand up for themselves regarding health concerns or abuse. If the negligence or intentional acts of doctors, nurses or staff led to the serious injury or death of a family member, the law firm of Shivers, Gosnay & Greatrex, LLC can advocate for their rights.

Our experienced trial lawyers have a record of success in personal injury and medical malpractice, including lawsuits for nursing home negligence. Based in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, we serve clients in the Camden County area and across South Jersey. Call us for a consultation about your loved one's negligent care.

Nursing Home Negligence

The attorneys of Shivers, Gosnay & Greatrex, LLC have handled a number of nursing home cases and have the experience and resources to review and handle a wide range of these cases including:

  • Failing to supervise or assist residents
  • Failing to diagnose and treat serious illness
  • Falls including falling from beds
  • Injuries from transport or restraint
  • Medication errors
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Bedsores and infections from neglect
  • Failure to ensure safety (wandering off, attacks by other residents)

A case example: We represented a woman who arrived for a three-week convalescent stay. Her condition required help walking, which should have been noted by nurses at intake. She was left unattended and waited 30 minutes for help to get to the bathroom. Our client suffered severe injuries when she fell trying to walk by herself. We obtained a substantial settlement from the nursing home for its negligence.

Nursing Home Abuse

Residents of a care facility are vulnerable to sexual abuse, emotional abuse and physical assault. If you suspect your family member's unexplained injuries or sudden sadness were caused by excessive restraint, abusive treatment or sexual assault, we have the skills and resources to investigate. Gregg Shivers and George Greatrex both have extensive experience as prosecutors and are particularly dedicated to representing victims of crime - especially those victims who were helpless due to age or physical condition.

There is no excuse for nursing home negligence - we treat these cases as if it happened to our own loved one. We aggressively pursue full compensation for injury, trauma or death, and we are willing to go to trial to get justice.
