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

How do I find a lawyer for a car accident?
Finding a lawyer to represent you in your car accident case requires research—there simply is no way around it. Begin your homework by searching online for car accident lawyers in your area (New York City, Bronx, or Queens, for example). As you review their websites, check for the following characteristics: 
  • Experience in personal injury law—and with car accidents, specifically
  • Results—financial value of settlements and awards
  • Positive testimonials that speak to you
You can read more about how to find a lawyer for a car accident here.
How does a medical malpractice lawsuit work?
Medical malpractice lawsuits usually begin with an insurance claim. Your attorney will attempt to prove your case and negotiate a settlement that covers your damages. If obtaining compensation outside of court is not an option, you can pursue a civil suit. Want to find out more? Read our full article here.
How Do I Make an Accident Report from a Construction Accident?
If you suffered injuries in a construction accident, you must report the accident to your foreman or employer, but there are other steps you also must take if you hope to receive compensation for your injury. First things first! If you have been hurt, seek medical care and attention immediately. If you need an ambulance, ask for one to be called. Your construction foreman may or may not be aware of your accident. Do not assume they received word of the incident. Even if you verbally told your co-worker about it, this notification will not always help you if your employer does not have actual knowledge of your construction accident. Want to learn more about how to make an accident report? Read our full article here.
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.
Who do I sue for my injuries in a car accident case?
Claims for car accidents are usually made against the insurance companies for the owners and operators of the vehicles involved in the car accident. Sometimes a driver’s employer, a business entity or other party may need to be added to the claim and future lawsuit. Make sure that all of the proper parties are made part of your case so that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to.
Will my car accident case go to trial?
Most car accident cases settle before trial, however, you must be prepared to go all the way to jury verdict. If the defense counsel or the insurance adjuster senses that you are not ready to go the distance, they will try and settle for less than full value. Make sure your case is prepared to go all the way.
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 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.
