Knowing What to Do When Loved Ones are Injured in Nursing Homes

The Bill of Rights for New Jersey nursing home residents was enacted in 1976 to protect nursing home patients from neglect and abuse . It establishes responsibilities for nursing homes and delineates the rights of nursing home residents. Still, elder abuse in care facilities is far too common.

Abuse and Neglect Resulting in Nursing Home Injuries

If you have a loved one whom you believe is being abused or neglected in a care facility, it’s important to have an attorney on your side who will work to provide safety for that family member and bring justice to the perpetrators.

I retained attorney Steve Loewenthal to handle my personal injury case. Prior to our consultation, I was nervous  and still  unsure about what to do. Steve explained  the law, my options, and addressed all my questions or concerns about going forward. He’s an extremely knowledgeable attorney  who acts in a professional, respectful, and kind demeanor. He is direct and honest, does not make any ridiculous promises, or show any sign of unethical behavior.  Before  the depositions,  he explained the process, took the time to calm my concerns/fears, but most importantly, instructed me to tell the truth. I am aware of some of the negative stereotypes assumed about personal injury attorneys; however, Steve exhibits NONE of these negative qualities.

If you are a sports fan, you will love his office! His has an amazing assistant who was also very helpful! I did not call often but when I did, she knew who I was and exchanged pleasantries. With integrity and expertise, Steve succeeded in effectively handling my case. I do not share my experiences often; but in this case, Steve Loewenthal definitely earned my trust, respect, and my recommendation!

A Diamond in the Rough!

Mr. Loewenthal represented me in a civil case. From the initial consultation to the settlement, Steve provided the most professional, knowledgeable and considerate level of service. Steve kept me informed every step of the way and took his time to explain each new development in the case.

Steve’s experience gave me confidence from the outset the case would be handled with expertise. He was able to coordinate between all parties involved and his negotiating skills resulted in a most favorable outcome. His staff was a pleasure to deal with and were very accommodating. Steve and his office went above and beyond and he comes with my highest recommendation. Thank You, Steve, for everything you did in handling my case.

Highly Recommend

Mr. Loewenthal took my automobile personal injury case after 2 other law firms turned me down because of car insurance reasons that couldn’t get me a settlement. In NJ, you only have 2 years after your date of accident to pursue personal injury damage. I went to Mr. Loewenthal with my case close to 3 months before the 2 year deadline to sue. He walked me through everything that was going to happen, assured me that we have a case and worked hard on my case and met the deadline to sue. When Mr. Loewenthal called me withe settlement number, I almost fell off of my chair. He got me way more than I thought was possible, for I thought I was getting nothing because of the other lawyers turning my case down. Needless to say, Mr. Loewenthal is a “Jackpot!” lawyer and I recommend him 101% to anyone who wants a real lawyer.
