Nursing homes can be the answer that many families are searching for during a hard time. However, the stories and nightmares of residents in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities can scare anyone away. The ugly truth is that residents can suffer severe injuries as the result of neglect, negligence, or even abuse. The nursing home negligence attorneys at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP® of Schenectady, New York is dedicated to upholding the quality of care in our long-term care institutions by defending the rights and seeking compensation for residents who are injured by neglect or inadequate care.
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. That being said, 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.
The above injuries are not the natural result of the aging process, and can be prevented. 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 the nursing home negligence lawyers of Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP® at our local Schenectady office. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to accept your case we will work on a contingent fee basis.
