Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse Law FirmResidents 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. It’s Our Free Fee Guarantee™.

Wrongful Death

If someone is injured as a result of negligence and dies as a result of those injuries, the Administrator or Executor of the Estate may bring a claim for wrongful death. The claim is brought on behalf of those family members who would be entitled to inherit from the Estate. New York law allows a recovery for the economic loss that is incurred as a result of the death as well as a recovery for the conscious pain and suffering experienced by the deceased.

When determining the amount of damages to award to the Estate, a jury may consider the character, habits and ability of the deceased, the services the deceased would have performed, the portion of the deceased’s earnings that would have been spent to care for and support the family, and the intellectual, moral and physical training, guidance and assistance that the deceased would have given any children.
