Bergen County Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Practicing for more than 20 years in Bergen County and throughout New Jersey, Sugarman Law’s practice has focused on representing the elderly and their families – taking on nursing homes, assisted living facilities, memory care units, and other facilities that neglect and abuse our elderly. Abuse or neglect that occurs in a Bergen County elder care facility requires action – action for compensation and to make sure it doesn’t happen to anybody else.

Strong state and federal laws protect Bergen County’s elderly from poor care in nursing homes. New Jersey’s Nursing Home Responsibilities and Residents Rights Act is one of the strongest laws in the United States to protect the elderly. Sugarman Law has successfully represented families winning results against Bergen County facilities that negligently cared for its elder residents.

When we find conduct that violates care standards and New Jersey’s Nursing Home Resident’s Rights Law, we take on the facility and its staff to win maximum compensation for injuries, pain and suffering and wrongful death.
