Aggressive California Lawyer Takes on Negligent Nursing Homes

Dedicated San Jose firm seeks justice for elderly accident victims

Families throughout California trust nursing homes to take good care of their elderly loved ones. Without proper supervision and guidance, seniors can get hurt due to a fall, equipment failure or some other instance of negligence. Our San Jose firm, the Law Offices of Richard J. Staskus, takes on elder care providers and facilities that have violated their obligation to keep residents safe. We understand how difficult these cases can be to prove, especially if the victim has some memory or cognitive problems. With 40 years of service to the Bay Area, we’re familiar with the types of injuries that occur at nursing homes and determined to deliver justice to elderly victims.

Effective advocate handles a wide range of claims involving senior facilities

Establishing liability in a personal injury case against a nursing home or some other type of senior facility requires thorough research and skillful application of the law. Attorney Richard Staskus has won substantial verdicts against negligent parties, with success finding the workers, businesses and manufacturers who were responsible for incidents such as:

  • Falls — Older men and women are very susceptible to slip and fall injuries, particularly if they are physically impaired. If you or someone you loved was hurt in this way, we’ll press to see if proper supervision was in place.
  • Equipment problems — It can be hard to determine if equipment in a nursing home meets professional standards. Our firm relies on experts to support a case against the people who make, maintain and operate faulty machines.
  • Staff errors — Nursing home workers who are not trained or supervised correctly pose a threat to each resident whom they serve. In these matters, we check whether required procedures were established and followed.
  • Prescription mistakes — Even a slight variation from a prescription regimen is very dangerous. Our firm details the full extent of the damage that results from these errors and vigorously pursues appropriate relief.
