Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Warwick & Newport, Rhode Island, Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer
Throughout the country, many nursing homes and assisted living centers are financially strapped. Unfortunately, some nursing home administrators have placed a higher priority on profit margins than on senior citizens’ well-being. If your loved one has endured any form of abuse or neglect, obtain experienced legal help.
I am attorney Vincent D. Morgera, and I established this law firm to protect injury victims’ rights. I offer an extensive background holding nursing homes and assisted living centers accountable for their negligent actions. When you select my law firm, you can feel confident that you will work directly with an experienced legal advocate. I have a clear understanding of the state and federal regulations nursing homes and assisted living centers must follow to maintain a safe premise. If any regulations were violated, I will not hesitate to pursue legal action.

Fighting Back Against Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect
Assisted living centers and nursing homes are required to employ a certain number of staff members for every resident at the facility. When nursing homes and assisted living centers cut corners and eliminate positions, residents become vulnerable to serious medical conditions that could have been avoided, such as:
- Bed sores — Immobile residents need caregivers to rotate them every two hours. When staff members fail to do this, residents are put at great risk of serious infections, which can lead to sepsis, if left untreated.
- Malnutrition and dehydration — When nursing homes and assisted living centers are understaffed, residents often suffer from malnutrition and dehydration from a lack of supervision.
- Broken bones, fractures and burn injuries — When staff members are overworked, residents are often left unattended and become susceptible to serious injuries, including fractures, broken bones and burn injuries.
- Assault and rape — I aggressively hold nursing homes and assisted living centers accountable for failing to screen employees with a criminal background known to take advantage of vulnerable residents.
I work directly with a professional nurse consultant and medical doctors who are attorneys. My legal team has proven to be invaluable in helping me establish fault in nursing home abuse and neglect cases. As part of our investigation, we evaluate a resident’s life-care plans. I will not hesitate to pursue legal action against nursing homes or assisted living centers for failing to address a resident’s medical needs. If the nursing home or assisted living center was not staffed according to state and federal regulations, I will pursue damages. I am an experienced trial attorney prepared to gather as many facts as possible to prove fault.
