We serve clients of Luzerne County, the Poconos, and the Anthracite Region. Trial lawyer Bob Gillespie represents persons injured in nursing homes and assisted living facilities for their intentional misconduct or negligent care, such as:

  • Bed sores and infections from neglect
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Medication errors
  • Falls from beds or wheelchairs
  • Falls in showers or bathrooms
  • Physical abuse or excessive restraint
  • Emotional or psychological abuse
  • Security/monitoring breaches

Many nursing homes are short-staffed and unable to provide the state's mandated level of care. Some employ workers with inadequate training, prior professional misconduct, or even criminal records. Attorney Bob Gillespie has more than 30 years of experience in civil litigation and the investigative skills to get to the root of the abuse. He retains a forensic nurse to examine medical charts and records and other experts who can testify when the accepted standard of care was breached. For example, investigation in one case revealed that a man whose chart called for a liquid diet literally choked to death when an aide fed him a peanut butter sandwich.
