Nursing Home and Assisted Living Lawsuits
If you have a loved one who is being cared for in a nursing home or residential care facility and question some of the policies, procedures, or level of care being provided, reach out to Peiffer Wolf today. Sadly, nursing home abuse is a rapidly growing problem and experience for families trying to take care of their elderly loved ones. Facilities and institutions taking on the care of others operate with a variety or rules and regulations to ensure the safety and well-being of the residents. If you think something is wrong or if a loved one has been injured, contact us for a FREE Consultation. We can hear your story, discuss your loved one’s rights, and look into the level of care being received.
Long term care facilities, elder care facilities, and nursing homes are often wonderful and caring places to place aging parents and grandparents who require constant care. In most facilities, our loved ones are surrounded by nurses, doctors, and other staff members who are trained to care for them and meet their daily living needs.
Unfortunately, some facilities engage in conduct that can only be described as abuse and neglect. Each and every year, many of our most vulnerable senior citizens are abused, neglected, and injured in long-term care facilities, nursing homes, or other elder care facilities. Many of these vulnerable adults cannot take care of themselves, cannot verbalize their needs, and some cannot even feed themselves; they depend on others to take care of them.
In some facilities, residents are left alone or ignored by those charged to care for them or even abused by staff members. If you suspect that you or someone you love may be a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, please contact Peiffer Wolf to review your case.

Nursing Home and Assisted Living Injuries in the news
Typically, we represent clients on contingency fee agreements. If we take your case under a contingency fee arrangement, you won’t owe our firm any legal fees unless we are able to recover money for you.
Our contingency fee agreements are usually based on a percentage of the amount we recover for our clients. The contingency fee amount is determined by the type of case, our estimate of how long it will take to resolve your case, and our estimate of the litigation costs we will advance in your case. Each engagement agreement includes the details of the fee arrangement. Questions about our fee agreements are welcomed and encouraged.
In most litigation matters, it is extremely difficult – practically impossible – to predict how long it will take to resolve a particular case. Every case is different, and we will do our best to provide you with an estimate based on your case and our experience with similar cases. Moreover, we will do our best to keep you updated and manage expectations along the way.
