Bloomfield, New Jersey, personal injury lawyer Alan J. Markman has successfully sued care facilities in Essex County, Union County and Hudson County for nursing home abuse, neglect and medical negligence:
  • Bed sores
  • Falling injuries
  • Failure to diagnose and treat illness
  • Medication errors
  • Malnourishment or dehydration
  • Excessive restraint or overmedication
  • Broken equipment (bed rails, wheelchairs, walkers)
  • Punishment or emotional abuse
  • Physical abuse or sexual assault
  • Injuries from elopement (wandering off)

Why Did This Happen?

Nursing home abuse and neglect usually traces to negligent hiring and staffing. Was the facility understaffed? Did the nursing home administrators check the criminal background and certifications of employees? How often are patients seen by a physician? Was the patient assessed for health risks and did workers adhere to special care requirements? What security measures protect nursing home residents from abuse (or self-harm)?

Mr. Markman has practiced in injury law for 14 years. His experience in medical malpractice and other negligence litigation enables him to ask the right questions and compare the nursing home's practices against industry standards and state regulations. He consults with doctors, nurses and other experts who can review the records and testify how patient injuries were allowed to occur.

Nursing home abuse is an abuse of trust. Markman & Cannan LLC fights to expose bad care and hold those facilities accountable for full damages. Call us at 877-R-U-HURT2 or e-mail us to arrange a free consultation.
