Rumson Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse is a major problem in the United States. The Nursing Home Bill of Rights as outlined by the State of New Jersey protects the rights of all senior citizens.

According to the bill, all nursing homes must uphold the right to voice complaints without threat, the right to reside in a clean and safe facility, and the right to remain free of constraint unless otherwise authorized.

Residents in nursing homes often suffer from malnutrition, dehydration, falls, bedsores, psychological abuse, and physical abuse. Residents also suffer emotional abuse, verbal abuse, humiliation, and isolation. Oftentimes, this goes unnoticed or unreported.

If you or a loved one have suffered emotional, physical, or sexual abuse in a nursing home, call our team of personal injury lawyers today at 888-355-4752.

Resisting Arrest in Rumson

If you’ve committed a crime and then attempt to resist arrest, you can be charged for a separate offense.

According to New Jersey law, if an individual intentionally attempts to prevent a law enforcement officer from performing an arrest, that individual is guilty of a disorderly persons offense of resisting arrest.

A disorderly persons charge is considered a misdemeanor charge and can be punished with up to six months in jail after being litigated in Municipal Court.

If an individual intentionally attempts to prevent or actually prevents by flight a law enforcement officer from effecting an arrest, that person is guilty of a Fourth Degree Offense. Any resistance in the form of actual fleeing an officer may be tried as a Fourth Degree Offense. A Fourth Degree Offense is an indictable felony charge and litigated in New Jersey Superior Court. This charge can carry up to 18 months of jail time.
