New York Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers Represent Injured Residents
With offices in Manhattan and Nassau County, our legal team at Rich & Rich, P.C. litigates against nursing homes and assisted living facilities in the five boroughs, Long Island, and in the surrounding areas. Nursing home neglect constitutes a breach of the trust families put in the individuals and institutions who are supposed to provide attentive care for their vulnerable elder family members. When patients are physically injured or die in a nursing facility, we vigorously seek compensation for injuries and deaths resulting from substandard care.
Recognizing the Signs of Nursing Home Negligence
Nursing homes and assisted living facilities owe a duty of care to their residents. When this duty is violated, residents may experience serious injuries, including broken bones, bedsores and even death.
Possible warning signs of nursing home negligence include but are not limited to:
- Bedsores (Pressure ulcers, Decubitus ulcers)
- Fractures and broken bones
- Head injuries
- Wrongful death
- Sepsis infections
- Unexplained bruises or injuries
- Malnutrition and Dehydration
- Medication errors
- Unsupervised wandering (inside facility) and elopement (outside facility)
These injuries can result from the failure to use safety devices, such as bed and chair alarms and call bells, failure to turn patients in bed and failure to assist patients out of wheelchairs or while walking.
Nursing home neglect often involves elderly individuals who may be too physically weak or mentally compromised to advocate for themselves. Do not let fear or uncertainty prevent you from voicing your concerns. We assist the loved ones of neglect victims by fighting to hold wrongful parties liable for the harm they cause. Our attorneys advocate for clients to collect compensation for the physical and emotional harm they’ve endured.
Our legal team takes on negligent nursing homes and care providers to help our clients obtain the legal relief they deserve and to prevent other residents from experiencing similar negligence.
