New Jersey Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer
“There is a significant value to living your life with dignity, and to enjoying the golden years in a pain free lifestyle. The golden years of life should not be years of physical and emotional suffering, abuse, or neglect.”
— Attorney Saul G. Gruber
At The Javerbaum Wurgaft Nursing Home Group with offices in Mount Laurel and Philadelphia, we agree that there is virtually nothing more rewarding than improving the quality of life and care for our elderly clients.
Causes of nursing home neglect and abuse
Nursing home negligence resulting in neglect or abuse of vulnerable adults can generally be traced to corporate greed. As personal injury lawyers we routinely identify areas where administrators chase profits at the expense of patients. The most common cause of abuse or neglect is negligence in staffing. Aides and nurses in nursing homes are poorly paid, and often are poorly trained, and unsupervised. Administrators may not have performed criminal and employment background checks on staff and residents.
Preventing nursing home negligence
By aggressively pursuing compensation for residents with preventable nursing home injuries, holding negligent administrators responsible for our clients’ losses, and by educating legal professionals and the public about nursing home rights, our attorneys strive to improve the senior care environments in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and homes where home health aides are administering care.

Our lawyers would like to correct some common myths about nursing home residents:
Myth: Nursing home residents will not collect injury claims
The resident of a nursing home has rights and guarantees under New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and federal law. Our lawyers have recovered compensation for many residents when the nursing homes’ failures to perform required actions resulted in illness, injury, or death.
Myth: Wrongful death claims for the elderly have no value
Attorney Saul Gruber, a noted speaker on nursing home negligence law, states that, “To ever allow a judge or jury to believe the value of the elderly is minimal is outrageous and unacceptable.” Mr. Gruber has successfully recovered compensation for families who have lost loved ones through nursing home neglect or abuse.
Our attorneys handle state and federal trials and appeals throughout New Jersey and Southeastern Pennsylvania, serving clients from communities including Philadelphia, Mount Laurel, and Cherry Hill. Lawyers at The Javerbaum Wurgaft Nursing Home Group have successfully resolved a wide variety of nursing home negligence claims, and attorney Saul Gruber is a frequent speaker on related issues.
If you are concerned that an elderly person’s injury is the result of nursing home negligence, or have another question for our lawyers, please contact our Philadelphia or Mount Laurel office to arrange a complimentary consultation. We assure you that your inquiry will be handled with sensitivity, complete confidentiality, and without obligation from you in any way. In most cases our services are contingency-based, meaning our client pays no attorney fees unless we recover damages on the client’s behalf.
