Ginsburg and Associates are well known for their nursing home neglect cases. They fight for the rights of the elderly and make sure they are treated justly and get the compensation they rightfully deserve. They recently won a handsome settlement of $ 121,000 for an 81-year-old lady who was a victim of nursing home abuse.

According to Bruce Ginsburg, founder of Ginsburg & Associates, “Skilled care and nursing home neglect cases required experience with the law and an ability to understand people as they get older. We are placing our families into homes where we expect quality care.”

According to details, the 81-year-old lady was a resident at an assisted living facility in Chester Country, PA. The assisted living facility accepted her as a resident although they were aware of the fact that she was at a great risk of falling due to her age. Even after she fell twice, no changes were implemented in her care plan. The facility failed to provide the professional care it had promised, and never tried to prevent another fall. Very sadly, after a few days the elderly lady fell again and this time, it was very serious as she fractured her lumbar spine which required kyphoplasty surgery. Since it was time enough to get the elderly lady some justice, Ginsburg and Associates looked into this catalog of failure and made an inquiry. They used their professional expertise to hold the negligent facility responsible and the victim received $121,000 as a settlement against injuries.

Brent Weiand, personal injury attorney representing the client, in this case, says, “We knew we had a solid case and are happy we were able to reach this settlement, and help our client through this difficult situation.”

Elderly people are sent to such facilities because they need full-time attention and care from someone who is good at their job. But unfortunately, some elderly people are abused due to lack of training of caregivers and their simple neglect. Currently, nursing home neglect cases are on the rise and are creating a major problem for the facilities. Families of the victims demand justice and an inquiry.
