We Are Experienced Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers

When 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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
You do not need a personal injury lawyer, but one can benefit you in many ways following an accident resulting in serious physical harm. Severe injuries can lead to expensive medical care, extended absences from work, pain and suffering, and other damages. Read our full article to find out more about when it's right to hire a personal injury lawyer. 
What is life like after a spinal cord injury?
The amount of independence and movement is different for each person depending on where on the spine the injury occurred. Every person who sustains a spinal cord injury will have a different lifestyle than before the injury.
What is a deposition?
A deposition or EBT (examination before trial) is an opportunity for the defendants’ lawyers to ask you questions under oath about how your accident occurred. Depositions are normally conducted in an attorney’s office or the office of the court reporter who is transcribing your testimony. All parties are usually deposed.
What is the Average Settlement for a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?
Since medical malpractice covers such a wide variety of injuries and scenarios, there is no average settlement amount for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Furthermore, many individual factors can affect a settlement’s amount, such as the injury’s permanence and impact on your job and whether your case settles out of court. When thinking about your malpractice case, remember that it is a  personal injury with losses. Malpractice is then subcategorized into different types, each with its own area.  To learn more, please read our full article here.
What Happens if the Other Driver Was Uninsured?
If the other driver was uninsured we can file an uninsured motorist claim under your vehicle’s insurance policy.  Automobile insurance policies written for New York State motorists are required to have uninsured protection.  This insurance will provide financial compensation to you, if the at fault driver does not have insurance. If you must file through your own insurer, you need a skilled law firm to help you recover the maximum money damages available.
Can I bring a car accident lawsuit if I am undocumented?
Personal injury lawsuits can be brought without regard to your immigration status. Even if you are undocumented you have the right to sue for money damages for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering.
What questions should I ask a personal injury lawyer?
When searching for a personal injury lawyer, you should ask questions about their experience, services and results.  You only have one chance to recover and finding the right lawyer can make a big difference in the final outcome of your case, the level of services that you receive, and the amount of compensation that you are awarded.   Want more information? Read our full article here.
Can I Get Compensated if I Was Partly at Fault for My Car Accident?
The short answer is yes - many times, you can be compensated if you are partly at fault. Again, New York is a no-fault insurance state in which your own insurance pays for your out-of-pocket costs such as limited lost wages and medical bills up to $50,000.  When you make a claim for pain and suffering as well as certain economic loss above no-fault, the percentages of fault will be considered in your recovery. Your injury from your car accident may have a certain value, however, fault will be taken into consideration at the time of trial or settlement.
