New Jersey & Pennsylvania Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
According to Elder Abuse Daily, there are nearly 6 million reported cases of elder abuse every year and countless cases that go unreported each year. California, Florida, New York, Texas and Pennsylvania account for over one third of all elder abuse cases in the United States. The Special Investigations Division of the House Government Reform Committee believes that 30 percent of all nursing home and elder care facilities are cited for instances of abuse. If this number is not alarming enough, it is also believed that for every one case of abuse that is reported another five go unreported.
