Pennsylvania Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
Philadelphia – Harrisburg – Scranton – Pittsburgh – Erie Pennsylvania – New Jersey
Abuse of the elderly and infirm in nursing homes is among the most outrageous of crimes. Those who are living in nursing home and long term care facilities are often unable to speak up when they are suffering from abuse. While many nursing home staff care for their residents and do all they can to help, others engage in abuse and negligence that is staggering. This is why the Pennsylvania nursing home abuse lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams are ready, willing and able to stand up for these most vulnerable of victims.

Our Pennsylvania nursing home abuse team is led by Anita Pitock. Anita is both an attorney and a nurse. She knows the impact that having a loved one abused in a nursing home can leave on both that person and her family.
What is Nursing Home Abuse?
Nursing home abuse in Pennsylvania (and everywhere else) includes both obvious abuse such as hitting or sexual assault, as well as neglect, such as failure to take care of bed sores or provide proper nutrition and hydration. Unfortunately, as the numbers of people in long term care facilities increase, the amount of abuse increases as well.
