Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
As our loved ones age, it is often impossible to balance their need for care with our resources and need to work. Many families turn to nursing homes and other residential care facilities to provide the care we cannot. Too often, however, these facilities and their employees fail to adhere to an appropriate standard of care.
Nursing home abuse is a terrible and saddening situation that is an unfortunate fact of life in many areas around the country. It is difficult to believe that many individuals and businesses take advantage of our most vulnerable loved ones. How can a care worker whose very job description is care for the elderly commit such acts?

An attorney from the law offices of Marzzacco Niven & Associates will raise a voice and help you protect the rights of your valued and important family member.
