Jules B. Olsman

After my injury, I was anxious, overwhelmed, depressed and needed a reputable, respectable, professional, with high integrity, someone to fight to win, someone who cared and took a personal interest, someone that made me feel I was important, someone that would always be there to answer my questions or concerns during the legal process. I chose the BEST because I deserved the BEST and so do you. You need to make the call to Jules B. Olsman a priority so that you may become one of his.

For more than 40 years, much of nursing home negligence lawyer Jules B. Olsman’s practice has been focused on helping residents injured in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, as well as representing the family members who have suffered from the death of a loved one due to nursing home negligence, abuse, and neglect.

At the time Jules started representing families and residents in nursing home injury matters, few attorneys practiced in this area.  Injuries from negligence, abuse, and neglect in nursing homes were often overlooked.  There were few regulations governing nursing home resident safety, and no regulations concerning a resident’s Bill of Rights.

Falls, choking, bedrail suffocation, bed sores / pressure sores (ulcers), and other preventable injuries and deaths were often viewed as unavoidable “accidents”.  Neglect and abuse – including physical abuse, chemical restraints, and psychological abuse – were unfortunately commonplace, but often not known by family members.

Through the past four decades, Jules has been at the forefront of seeking justice for the victims of nursing home negligence, abuse, and neglect, and for the families who have lost a loved one.  During this time, he and our firm have represented a countless number of clients in nursing home matters, and we have recovered tens of millions of dollars for residents and their families.


As a lawyer for more than 40 years, I’ve seen first-hand the devastating injury and loss of life that needlessly occurs in nursing homes and long-term care facilities.  The underlying cause for many injuries and wrongful death is simple – facility owners put profits over people.

They are understaffed. They hire unqualified workers.  They push down important care functions to workers who do not have adequate training.  They do not make the time to ensure proper safety, including ongoing assessments of resident health and limitations.

Nursing home negligence, abuse, and neglect is not an accident.  It’s a foreseeable result of the processes that are implemented.

If a loved one has been injured or has died in a nursing home, I would invite you to call me for a free consultation.  With nurses on staff at our firm, we have the resources to carefully assess a matter to determine if a nursing home is likely responsible for an injury or death, and the experience to hold nursing homes fully accountable for all damages they cause.
