Nursing home patients are typically elderly or disabled individuals who cannot independently perform the basic, daily tasks that are essential to their well-being. These include things such as preparing food and eating it, taking medications, bathing, and maintaining a healthy and safe living environment, as just a few examples. Any sort of abuse is devastating to its victims and those who love them but it can be especially horrific when a family realizes that the place they have put their loved one to have their basic needs to be taken care may not only not be getting this but may also be being abused. To know that someone who cannot fight back, comprehend and/or speak up about their abuse is being harmed, is horrible beyond words.

Common Types of Nursing Home Abuse

others, and subjecting someone to extended periods of isolation and seclusion, may cause depression, anxiety, or a shortened life span- and is considered to be abuse.
Financial This is when an elderly person’s finances are taken advantage of.
Sexual Any sort of forced physical act or gestures that are sexual in nature from a nursing home staff to a patient are considered to be abuse.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
