Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers Attorneys

“Have you or a family member sustained injuries while living in a nursing home or assisted living home? Are these injuries at all suspicious or peculiar? If you have doubts on how an elderly family member sustained injuries, and suspect he or she was the victim of abuse, please contact our nursing home negligence lawyers today for your free consultation and guidance on the next steps.

It is often believed that elderly loved ones who are placed in nursing homes and assisted living homes are better off and in good hands. However, what happens if the quality of care is not up to your standards?

Elderly people tend to have a weaker immune system and if injured, often have a longer recovery than when they were younger. These facts, coupled with negligent or abusive acts in a nursing home, may lead to very severe injuries. That being said, some estimates state that there are over 2 million victims of some form of abuse in nursing homes or assisted living facilities in the U.S. alone. Abuse can result in any of the following:

    • Dehydration
    • Falls
    • Sexual Abuse
    • Bedsores
    • Malnutrition
    • Chemical or Physical Restraints
    • Medication Errors
    • Unsanitary or Unhygienic Conditions
    • Wrongful Death

Has your family member strayed from the nursing home or assisted living home grounds? Have you or a loved one been injured while staying in one of these facilities? If you believe any form of abuse has occurred, please call the Buffalo, NY nursing home negligence lawyers at Martin, Harding Mazzotti, LLP toll-free, 24/7 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 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. 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 death is very difficult, but is paramount to the outcome. Please be sure to seek a lawyer who knows the process and will help get you and your loved ones the money you rightfully deserve.
