New York City Nursing Home Negligence
If you or a loved one has been injured in a nursing home due to neglect or elder abuse, the law firm of Rich & Rich, P.C. is experienced in this area.

Frequently, families are presented with a situation where their disabled loved one is not being cared for properly in nursing homes or other residential communities. Nursing home abuse and neglect are considered to be a form of medical malpractice law and can substantiate a lawsuit. Let us investigate your claim to obtain the justice they deserve.
