Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse Law Firm

Residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities often suffer severe injuries as the result of neglect, negligence, or even abuse. Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP® is dedicated to upholding the quality of care in our long-term care institutions by seeking compensation for residents who are injured by neglect or inadequate care.

Have you or your family member suffered from bedsores, falls, dehydration, malnutrition, chemical or physical restraints, sexual abuse, medication errors or unsanitary or unhygienic conditions? Has a family member wandered in or strayed from a nursing home and suffered an injury as a result? If so, you or your family member may have a case.

These preventable indignities and injuries are not the natural result of the aging process. Long-term care facilities such as nursing homes are required to provide adequate care to maintain and attain the highest practicable level of physical and mental well-being for their residents. Anything less is a violation of New York State and Federal regulations and statutes.


If you or a loved one has suffered abuse, neglect, or wrongful death in a nursing home or other long-term care facility, please contact Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP®. The initial consultation is free of charge, and, if we agree to accept your case, we will work on a contingent fee basis.

Let the law firm of Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP®, The Heavy Hitters®, located in Albany, NY help if you or a loved one has suffered abuse, neglect, or wrongful death in a nursing home or other long-term care facility by calling us at (518) 529-1010 or toll free at 1800LAW1010® (1-800-529-1010).

Wrongful Death

Dealing with the loss of a loved one can be extremely difficult, and knowing that their death could have been prevented is even worse. If you want to bring forward a wrongful death claim on behalf of your loved one, be sure that you understand all the steps in the process so that you can find justice, and protect the rights of the Estate. Don’t let a complicated legal system get in the way of your family’s right to compensation, contact the wrongful death law firm of Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP® for your free case assessment.

If one has been injured as the result of someone else’s negligence, and later dies because of this injury, the Administrator or Executor of the specified Estate may file a wrongful death claim. In New York State, the law permits the recovery of any economic loss or conscious pain and suffering that is due to the wrongful death. The amount awarded for economic loss is determined by the jury, and takes many different variables into consideration when settling on a dollar amount:

  • Character, habits and ability of the deceased
  • Services the deceased would have performed
  • Portion of the deceased’s earnings that would have been spent to care for and support the family
  • The intellectual, moral and physical training guidance and assistance of the deceased that would have been passed down to future generations

This process of determining just how much economic loss will be inherited as a result of the wrongful death is very difficult, but is paramount to the outcome. Please be sure to seek a wrongful death lawyer who knows the process and will help get you and your loved ones the money you rightfully deserve.
