As our loved ones age, it is sometimes necessary to seek out nursing homes or assisted living facilities that can help care for them. We pursue this care with the understanding and trust that our loved ones will be safer than they otherwise would have been. Even though such facilities are required by New York State and Federal law to offer high-quality, attentive care for their residents, it is an unfortunate reality that that is not always the case. If you believe you or a loved one has been neglected or abused by one of these facilities, contact the nursing home negligence attorneys at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP®.
The injuries listed below, if experienced by your loved one who has been living in a nursing home or assisted living facility, could be signs that negligence or abuse is occurring there:
- Chemical or physical restraints
- Sexual abuse
- Medication errors
- Unsanitary or unhygienic conditions
- Any injuries suffered as a result of entering/leaving a nursing home
- Wrongful death
These injuries are entirely preventable and should not be mistaken for natural signs of the aging process. The team of nursing home negligence lawyers at the New York City, NY office of Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP® is prepared to help you file a claim on behalf of your loved one and will aggressively fight to help you recover the compensation your family deserves.
