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.
