New York Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
New York Elder Care Negligence Attorney
In some nursing homes and elder care facilities throughout New York, it is appalling to see some of the ways that residents are treated and how loved ones can be seriously injured by the negligence or abuse of nursing home staff. Nursing homes and elder care facilities are designed to provide safe and secure living environments for those who can no longer live on their own. In some cases, the people taking care of them are more concerned with turning a profit then with the treatment of residents.
At The Perecman Law Firm, our lawyers can help you protect your loved ones, hold nursing homes accountable and receive compensation to pay for medical treatment related to the neglect or abuse. When nursing homes are run more like a business than a care facility, the residents are the ones who suffer for it. Our law firm handles a large number of cases every year. We have the experience and knowledge to get the compensation that is critical for injured residents and their families.
Examples of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
The majority of instances of nursing home neglect are the result of poorly trained staff or insufficient staffing. In the worst cases, staff members will purposefully harm elderly residents who cannot defend themselves.
Our attorneys represent people who have been injured by nursing home neglect or abuse. Common injuries include:
- Poor nutrition
- Bed sores
- Falls, leading to broken hips, joints and other bones
- Medication and drug administration errors
- Assault, sexual assault and other nursing home abuse
If you believe that your loved one has suffered an injury or loss due to negligence on the part of nursing home staff or management, you need a lawyer who is not afraid to aggressively pursue compensation and accountability. Nursing homes are unlikely to admit to acts of neglect or abuse. It will be up to your lawyer to investigate, uncover the full story, and seek justice from those responsible.
