We handle nursing home negligence cases across New Jersey, in cities such as Hackensack, Teaneck, Paramus and North Bergen.

Hackensack Nursing Home Assault Lawyer - Bergen County Elder Abuse Law Firm
We give a voice to those who often cannot speak up for themselves. Our mission is to stop the abuse and to hold the perpetrator and the facility accountable. In many cases, a family member has noticed unexplained injuries or a change in the resident's behavior: fear, depression, withdrawal, outbursts or weeping. Sometimes, another resident or an employee has lodged a complaint.
Our experienced lawyers have sued nursing homes for the physical harm and/or emotional trauma from:
- Sexual abuse by staff
- Sexual assault by a co-resident
- Physical abuse or rough treatment
- Punishment, humiliation and emotional abuse
- Unnecessary restraints, sedation or isolation
North Bergen Elderly Abuse Lawyers
Our law firm conducts a medical records review and solicits testimony of the victim and any witnesses. We research staffing levels, security protocols, prior complaints or lawsuits, and the criminal and employment background of employees accused of assault or abusive treatment. Did the employer do a background check? Has this happened before? Why did nobody notice signs of abuse before now?
We share your outrage after entrusting your loved one to a care facility that didn't care, and we will fight for justice. For a free initial consultation, contact us today online or by telephone at 201 346-3800. We take nursing home cases on a contingency fee basis.
