Nursing Home Abuse/Neglect

protecting loved ones from abuse and neglect

We have the resources needed to help nursing home residents and families.


The abuse of the elderly and persons with disabilities in nursing homes, long-term care facilities, and assisted living facilities is a tragic and common problem. Families who have earnestly tried to find a safe and caring home for their vulnerable loved one can be unaware of the physical injuries, psychological harm, or financial loss being inflicted by the people entrusted with their care. When neglect or abuse is discovered, it can be emotionally and financially overwhelming to take care of a loved one, as well as dealing with the perpetrators. Often abusers go unpunished, and families do not get the justice and compensation that they deserve.

The attorneys at Morris James bring an end to the power that abusive nursing homes and care facilities have over you and your loved one. We fight to reveal their abuse and neglect, and to make them pay for the damage that they have caused. We take on the burden of dealing with their administrators, lawyers, and insurance companies so that you can focus on taking care of your loved one. We work hard to get the financial compensation that you need to regain stability and security for your neglected or abused family member.

We have been fighting for victims of negligence in Delaware since we opened our doors in 1932. Our attorneys have more than 150 years of combined experience dealing with the strategies and dominance of large companies and insurance providers, and we are not intimidated. We know our clients’ rights and we listen to your needs. We will fiercely negotiate for you, and go to trial if necessary, to get the compensation that you need and deserve.

If your loved one has been neglected or abused in a Delaware nursing home, long-term care facility, or assisted living facility, we may be able to help. Our attorneys at Morris James are available to talk to you about the rights and options that you have at this difficult time.
