GROUP HOME ABUSE ATTORNEYS
PROUDLY SERVING PITTSBURGH HARRISBURG SCRANTON & ALL SURROUNDING AREAS
GROUP HOME / NURSERY HOME ABUSE ATTORNEYS
Placing a developmentally disabled family member in a group home is a difficult decision. Ideally, these homes should be relied upon to provide the highest level of care and attention. Unfortunately, some group homes fall short, resulting in serious injuries or death to residents.
Our Pennsylvania group home abuse lawyers help victims and their families get the compensation they deserve from group home operators and the state agencies that are supposed to supervise them.
COMMON CAUSES OF GROUP HOME ABUSE
Children and adults with cognitive disabilities, epilepsy, cerebral palsy and autism are highly vulnerable to injury if they are placed in group homes that do not provide appropriate care and protection. Common causes of group home injuries include the following:
- Choking hazards
- Inappropriate placements resulting in violence between residents
- Inadequate supervision resulting in residents injuring themselves
- Medication errors and over-medication
- Physical and sexual abuse by staff members
Just recently we had a client come to us whose loved one passed away as a result of a group home’s “Outrageous Conduct.” Our client was a passenger in Hope Enterprise’s van when she suffered a liver laceration in a collision. She was not taken to the hospital until the next day for a previously scheduled appointment. Even as our client’s health deteriorated, Hope Enterprise’s staff failed to alert medical providers of the cause of her injuries, prolonging her pain and suffering for three more days until she sadly passed away.
Regardless of the age or the special needs of your loved one, we do not stand for abuse or neglect from nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or group homes such as Hope Enterprises. We took this matter to trial and a jury awarded over $3.1 million to the estate of our client, showing that the community will not stand for it either.

No one likes a bully. Yet, after a traumatic event in your life, that is exactly what the insurance company can seem like. Every day I fight zealously for my clients to get them the compensation they are entitled to, counsel them during a difficult period in their life, and protect my clients from those same bullies.
All attorneys can make promises, what separates our firm from the rest is the fact that we never stop working until you are completely satisfied and made whole again after a traumatic injury that was caused by someone else. Once I begin working on your case, the matter becomes personal to me. I always say, ‘I lose sleep so you don’t have to.

I’ve personally witnessed, through an experience of my father’s, how someone else’s negligent acts can alter a person’s life. It is fulfilling to be a member of the Pisanchyn law firm where I can help people like my dad who have been injured through the negligence of others.

I rate the Pisanchyn law firm five stars if I had a way to rate them 100 stars I would they were so kind so helpful and so caring in a very scary time of my life. I don’t know what I would’ve done without Mr. Pisanchyn and his staff. No matter what I needed they were there morning, noon, or night Mr.Pisanchyn was even kind enough to give me his own personal cell phone number in case I ever needed him day or night. This is the second time I’ve used his law firm and I will use him 100 more Times. I fully recommend his law firm to anyone and everyone in need of a good defense lawyer. I’ve already recommended him at least a dozen times and everyone I told to use his law firm has been more than satisfied. Some of them even called me and said thank you for recommending him. Thank you so much mike for everything you did for me and my family.
Nine years ago I was in a nasty car accident and didn’t know where to turn, with a lot of luck I ended up calling Mike to represent me. It was the best thing I ever did. He never treated me like a client, I made a friend. The friendship extended to the entire office. He did exactly what he said he would. Then 3 years ago my husband got hurt at work and we never thought twice on who to call. By this time Mike had taken on other partners in the firm. Keith, who handled the workers comp case and Lee who took care of the SSI. I don’t know what others are talking about it taking so much time or so much hastle~~~both ended up settling much sooner than we ever expected. The entire firm works together, from the attorneys to the entire staff. I really think that is part of what makes this law firm the best ever.

John and I want to thank you for all you have done for us. We know all of you put a lot of time and work in on our case and for that we are very thankful. You have the nicest friendliest people working there. Mara has been so nice to us. We especially want to thank Doug. We spent many hours talking with him and found him to be very personable.
The Pisanchyn Law Firm is in touch with local affairs and contacted us to say, “I heard about your situation. I AM YOUR attorney.” With aggressive, honorable, and knowledgeable representation, they have also met our pain with consolation… I will never forget the day my attorney called. Trust is the new game in the legal community, the Pisanchyn Law Firm wrote the book on accountability and Justice….CALL THEM.
I love this law firm, they helped me get my social security when no one else could, thank you!
I love this law firm, they helped me get my social security when no one else could, thank you!
Your entire firm, especially Attorney Bradley Moyer and Attorney Douglas Yazinski, have done an admirable job with my case and I am indebted to you for your work, kindness and your patience with me. Thank you all so much.
Thank you so much for all you’ve done to help us through this difficult time. It’s been very much appreciated.
It is heartwarming to know that there are still good and honest people around. Thank you very much!
I cannot thank Doug enough for all of his help with my case.
They helped me tremendously when I was going through Worker’s Compensation and a Settlement. There was no way I could have gone through it myself. Everyone was patient and professional with me and believe, I’m sure that was not easy. Everything was completely settled almost 13 months ago and I’m back on my feet and working once again. I absolutely recommend Pisanchyn Law Firm to anyone that needs help with a work injury or anything work related.
I would just like to thank everyone that helped settle my Workers’ Comp case, you were all so helpful. It meant a lot to me and helped me get my life back on track.
I can’t tell you how happy I am of the results from your office. I got wonderful, professional and extremely fast service for the situations I had. I will be using your office again if need be and telling everyone I know how hard it is to get results without your help.
