When the decision to entrust a nursing home with the care of your loved ones, we expect them to be treated with the best of care.

Nursing home abuse victims (or their family members) in Philadelphia have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit against the alleged negligent party. The Pennsylvania statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the date the injury occurs. This gives victims and/or their family members a two-year window to file a lawsuit against the alleged negligent nursing home or abuser. Failing to file a claim within this timeframe could result in the victim being unable to recover the compensation they are entitled to.
We are available to speak openly about your concerns. If we can help you pursue justice and financial compensation for your relative, you will pay no court fees unless we win for you.
