Helping Victims and Their Families in Northern and Central New Jersey
According to the National Center for Elder Abuse (NCEA), the 2010 Census recorded that over 13% of the population in the U.S. is over 65 years of age. Over the next few decades, seniors will comprise 20% of the total population.
Unfortunately, elder abuse is a serious problem in this country. In a 2010 study by Ben Natan, et al. published in Nursing Management, 50% of nursing home staff admit to mistreating older patients.
If you believe that a loved one has been victimized as a result of nursing home neglect or abuse, an attorney experienced in protecting the rights of our seniors can help.
More About Nursing Home Neglect
Signs of elder abuse may be missed by caring family members or even professionals working with older Americans because of lack of training on detecting abuse.
There are many forms of abuse and injury that may occur due to nursing home neglect. A facility that is negligent in hiring personnel may hire someone who has a track record of elder abuse or similar misconduct, and this may lead to abuse at the individual’s current position. An understaffed facility may result in poor medical care and also problems with nutrition and hygiene. Following are some types of nursing home abuse:
- Physical abuse
- Bed Sores
- Medical Malpractice
- Poor hygiene
- Sexual Abuse
- Emotional Abuse

Had a great experience with Edward lutz I was nervous about having to get a lawyer. Ed took the stressfulness out of that. He was very knowledgeable and keep me posted thought the case. He is a very genuine guy ! He also have a wonderful secretary Kathy who is always Friendly and helpful whenever I called or came in. I would highly recommend Edward lutz for your legal needs.
I have never been in an accident before and was very overwhelmed to say the least during the initial stages of this proces. Not only was it my first accident, but it included a personal injury as well. Mr. Lutz was someone who believed in me, walked me through every step of the way, and always answered my questions, no matter how silly they may have seemed. The end result to my case was very positive thanks to Mr. Lutz and his expertise. - Susan Gallico
As a lawyer, Mr.Lutz will put in the time needed! He was very patient, he will be committed to you as his client and he makes sure he’s committed to your case. Very great guy! He brings great energy and is very hard working. He also has a great team who makes you feel welcomed and comforted. - Patient - Educated - Very Resourceful
Him & His Staff Are Amazing. He Helped Me When I Was Injured. He Got Me The Money I Needed To Compensate Me With My Medical Bills. Also He’s Not You Average Attorney He Was More Like My Friiend. I Would Recomded Him To Anyone.
I was involved in a bad accident on my way to a jobsite. I was hit by a tractor trailer which resulted in several really serious painful injuries. I decided to take legal actions. I chose to hire Ed Lutz after carefully calling and emailing various personal injury lawyers. I am very happy I hired him. He truly cares about his clients and the case at hand. I called his office and believe it or not he actually answered the phone! He was pleasant to deal with and he was very professional. Now I have had some prior experiences with typical (I’ll never call you back) type lawyers. Ed Lutz is not one of them. You call his office and Kathy the secretary either gets him or he calls back usually that day. Kathy is also very pleasant to deal with on the phone and she couldn’t be nicer to deal with in person. Mr. Lutz handles the case from the very beginning to the very end. He knows the ins and outs of every detail of the case. He is extremely knowledgeable about the whole legal process and he will let you know about the different issues that may come up. His experts are also very good at what they do and the whole process couldn't have gone any smoother. Mr. Lutz got me a very large award and I cannot stress how important it is too find such a great lawyer such as Mr. Lutz. I would, without any hesitation, recommend him to handle your personal injury case.
