Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Lawyers Who Take Action When Nursing Homes Fail Residents

Nursing homes have a duty to keep their residents safe. When loved ones are placed in an assisted living facility, nursing home or skilled care facility there is an expectation that they will be well cared for by a professional and qualified staff. Sadly, this does not always occur, and the nursing home resident may be neglected or subjected to elder abuse resulting in injuries and sometimes even death.

At the Pittsburgh law office of Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., we represent the victims of nursing home negligence and their families across Pennsylvania.
