Having a loved one in a nursing home or long-term care facility is stressful. Seeing that loved one injured or become the victim of neglect, or worse, abuse is pain no family should endure. As part of a firm that has celebrated nearly 90 years of excellence, the experienced attorneys of Pellettieri Rabstein and Altman’s nursing home negligence and medical malpractice groups understand the difficult situation faced by patients who have suffered preventable, needless injuries at the hands of those who were supposed to care for them.
Pellettieri Rabstein & Altman’s sterling reputation in the field results from the successes of its Nursing Home/Medical Malpractice team. That team is expanding by adding Douglas S. Grossbart, M.D., J.D. who will be joining them.
Dr. Grossbart is a physician-attorney specializing in nursing home negligence, medical malpractice, and other complex personal injury matters. A 1988 summa cum laude graduate of Seton Hall University and a 1993 graduate of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, he completed his medical training internship in Pennsylvania before attending law school. He has handled medical malpractice, nursing malpractice, and hospital malpractice as well as nursing home abuse and malpractice matters spanning numerous specialties, including obstetrics, gynecology, oncology (cancer), anesthesiology, radiology, cardiology, as well as surgery and surgical subspecialties, such as neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery.
“I was attracted to Pellettieri Rabstein and Altman because I have known of the firm for years and respect their successful role in a number of court decisions as well as their strong reputation of excellence,” says Dr. Grossbart. “I believe my medical and legal background will be of significant benefit to the firm’s clients. It provides me unique insight when I take depositions or conduct cross examination, especially those of doctors, nurses and medical experts. My ability to work with medical experts on behalf of the firm’s clients, allows me to speak ‘the lingo’ which other attorneys simply do not.”
Nursing Home/Medical malpractice lawyers level the playing field between the client and insurance companies and lawyers defending the doctor or nursing care facility. They gather the facts and medical records for review by medical experts who are able to determine what happened, what can be proven, and what was done.
Says Dr. Grossbart, “I hope to play a key role in protecting the interests of our clients and to remedy some of the injustices that unfortunately occur every day. I treat each client with concern and carefully review all relevant medical information. I combine it with a deep insight into the law. Attention to detail includes family members and other relatives who often are also substantially affected by the negligent acts of others.”
Pellettieri Rabstein and Altman’s investigates whether or not the care provided loved ones fell below the recognized and accepted standards of practice, defining mistakes that should never be made under the circumstances. The firm gets you the best possible results, through negotiation, and when necessary, litigation.
