Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse Law Firm

When families are in need of extra care for their loved ones, nursing homes are sometimes the best option. Though a vast majority of facilities present no problems to patients and their families, there are certainly cases in which this is not the case. The harsh, but very possible reality of nursing home patients suffering severe injuries as a result of neglect, negligence, or even abuse is definitely something to consider when choosing a home for your loved one. The nursing home negligence lawyers at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP ® in Rochester, New York are committed to upholding quality care standards and defending the rights of nursing home patients and their families who are injured due to neglect or inadequate care.

 Long-term care facilities such as nursing homes are required by both Federal and State law to provide and maintain adequate care, including attaining the highest possible level of physical and mental well-being, for their patients. If you or a family member have experienced bedsores, falls, dehydration, malnutrition, chemical or physical restraints, sexual abuse, medication errors or unsanitary or unhygienic conditions, you may have a case against the care facility. This also includes injuries resulting from a family member that has wandered or strayed from a care facility.

Though some may argue that these injuries cannot be prevented because they are part of the natural aging process, this is not true and they can be prevented with proper care. If you or someone you love has been injured due to apparent negligence while under care from a long-term care facility, contact the nursing home negligence lawyers at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP at our Rochester, NY office. We will provide you a free consultation and if we decide to accept your case, we will work on a contingent fee basis.
