Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing Home NeglectWhen you move a loved one into assisted living or nursing home care, you want their declining years to be as comfortable and painless as possible. You expect that caregivers will ensure that they are well cared for, that their dietary and nutrition needs are met, and that they are not exposed to unnecessary risk of injury. Unfortunately, the nursing home industry is a for-profit industry, and more often than not, the bottom line takes priority over resident or patient care. If you have a loved one who has suffered needless injury because of the carelessness or negligence of nursing home operators or personnel, attorney Jacob Oresky can help.
At the law office of Oresky & Associates, pllc., we have more than 25 years of experience protecting the rights of personal injury victims on Long Island and across the greater New York City area, including people who have suffered needless injury because of nursing home neglect or abuse. Over the last quarter of a century, we’ve obtained more than $300 million in verdicts and settlements for our clients. We understand the devastating impact a personal injury can have on every aspect of your life, especially when you are in your golden years. We take an aggressive approach to personal injury litigation, using all our skill, knowledge, experience and resources to maximize your recovery.
Our Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Practice
We know that nursing home residents are often unable to speak for themselves, so we tenaciously advocate for seniors who have been subjected to wrongful treatment. We handle all types of nursing home abuse and neglect, including cases involving:
- Bedsores caused by failure to regularly reposition bedridden patients
- Malnutrition or dehydration due to improper diet or poor monitoring of patients
- Slips and falls resulting from inadequate monitoring of residents
- Medication errors, including failure to administer proper medications, giving medications at improper times (anti-depressants in the morning, for example), or incorrect dosages
- Physical abuse of residents
We will thoroughly investigate the facts and circumstances surrounding any injury to your loved one. We’ll also be your advocate with nursing home personnel, insurance companies and others.
Fighting for the Rights of Victims of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
We take all nursing home neglect claims on a contingency basis. There won’t be any legal fees unless we get compensation for your injuries.
