Civil litigation cases are disputes between two parties that seek damages and financial compensation. This is different than criminal cases, which seek criminal sanctions such as jail time. The lawyers who work these cases are called litigators or trial attorneys.
It’s important to carefully evaluate litigation lawyers when you decide you need a civil attorney. The civil litigation firm you work with should be experienced in working trial cases and have positive reviews or testimonials to refer you to. Our attorneys at Daniel M. Rosenberg & Associates have earned countless awards for excellence in New Jersey law. We are committed to serving you with compassion and diligence so you get the highest award possible.
Nursing Home Abuse
Acts such as purposeful injury, neglect, emotional abuse or deprivation of necessary services all constitute elder abuse in New Jersey. This conduct can sometime rise to the level of criminal conduct, but require purposeful conduct or gross negligence. Elder abuse can occur in a doctor’s office, hospital, nursing home, independent living facility or in a caregiver’s home. Some signs of elder abuse include malnourishment, bed sores, unexplained credit card purchases and rocking or biting (an indicator of mental distress). Civil litigation cases that pursue nursing home abuse charges can result in the closure of an abusing facility, compensation for medical bills and pain and suffering.
