Nursing Home Negligence Attorney in Morristown & Newton, NJ
When your loved ones require nursing home care, you expect that they will be treated with love and compassion, and that their caregivers will take reasonable measures to ensure their health and safety. Unfortunately, too many nursing homes place too much emphasis on profits, understaffing their facilities, hiring workers without proper experience or training, or failing to put appropriate policies in place to safeguard residents. If your family member has suffered a needless injury while in nursing home care, we can help.
At the Howard D. Popper, P.C., we bring more than 35 years of practice experience to accident victims across New Jersey, including elder individuals hurt as a result of nursing home abuse or neglect. We take a results-oriented approach, using our considerable skill, knowledge, experience and resources to help you maximize your financial recovery. Attorney Popper is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum*, an elite group representing less than one percent of all attorneys nationwide who have secured settlements or judgments in excess of $1 million. We place a premium on personal service and attention, with attorney Popper working directly with you throughout the legal process.
