Families across the country often consider placing a parent or grandparent in a nursing home or assisted living facility in order to provide them with the proper medical and day-to-day needs. Families that make the decision to seek out such a facility would like to believe that its caregivers are providing the best care for their elderly; however this is frequently not the case. Some estimates state that some 2.1 million elderly people in the United States are victims of some form of abuse in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. Negligence or intentional harmful acts may lead to very severe injuries for elderly persons due to their weakened immune systems and an inability to recover quickly. Plattsburgh’s leading nursing home negligence attorneys of Martin, Harding Mazzotti, LLP® are dedicated to getting you and/or your elderly loved one the greatest compensation for your inadequate care or negligence case.

When admitting a loved one to a nursing home or assisted living facility, be sure to do your research and keep an eye on the treatment your loved one is receiving. Nursing home abuse can include any of the following:
- Sexual Abuse
