Protecting Victims of Nursing Home Negligence

When we place a loved one in a nursing home, we expect them to be properly cared for and protected from danger. When nursing homes and their staff members are negligent in their duties, the results can be tragic.

At Weisberg & Weisberg, PLLC, based in Newport News and Norfolk, we are passionate advocates for victims of nursing home abuse and neglect throughout Virginia. Equipped with more than four decades of legal experience, nursing home abuse lawyer Michael S. Weisberg will do everything in his power to ensure that the victim receives his or her just and deserved compensation.

When Understaffing And Lack Of Supervision Lead To Injuries

Nursing home injuries are often the result of understaffing and lack of supervision of residents. When nursing homes cut corners and do not hire enough qualified staff members, there are simply too few people on hand to adequately monitor residents.

Regardless of the cause of nursing home abuse, the results are often tragic, including painful injuries and even wrongful death. Sadly, many nursing home residents are unable to express themselves, a factor that forces them to suffer in silence.

Weisberg & Weisberg, PLLC, handles a broad range of nursing home negligence lawsuits, including those involving:

  • Bedsores (pressure sores, decubitus ulcers)
  • Restraint injuries, including physical and chemical restraints
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Wandering off/elopement
  • Medication errors
  • Malnutrition/dehydration
  • Gangrene

Pursuing a nursing home negligence lawsuit not only helps your loved one, but it also holds nursing homes accountable for their negligence. This, in turn, protects other helpless elderly residents from suffering the same abuse and mistreatment.
