In 1987, Massachusetts implemented the Nursing Home Reform Act, providing for the "highest physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being of each resident." While most nursing home management groups and staff comply with the provisions of the act, too many continue to neglect the basic care and dignity of their residents. Common nursing home neglect problems include unsanitary conditions, malnutrition, improper medications, and even physical abuse by staff and co-residents.

Bringing Together Trial Experience And Knowledge
In 2000, experienced personal injury attorneys Paul Bishop and John Reidy formed a partnership and founded the law firm of Bishop & Reidy, P.C., in Quincy, Massachusetts. We are founded on the principal that injured people of every age and social class deserve uncompromising legal representation that helps them recover compensation they are owed for their injuries and injustices against them. We handle most nursing home neglect injury cases on a contingency basis. That simply means that we provide a free consultation and cover all costs for investigating and developing your case for court. If we don't win your contingency case, you will pay no attorneys' fees.

Patterns Of Abuse In Nursing Home Neglect Injuries
Elder abuse injury cases often come down to whether the long-term care facility has exhibited a pattern of neglect over time. We use a variety of professional resources to investigate everything about the nursing home owners, management team, and staff to determine where liability lies for the neglect and injuries. Often, we are able to prove that injuries and neglect are consistent with past experiences and a general pattern of poor supervision and training.
