Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse Law Firm

Placing an elderly loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility can be a heart-wrenching decision. Each year millions of families have to consider placing a loved one in a facility where their medical and living needs can be met, safely. We would like to think that the facilities and people whom we entrust their care will provide the same standard of care we gave, but often that’s not the case.

Elder abuse in nursing homes is unfortunately all too common in today’s society. 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.

Elderly people tend to have a weaker immune system, and if injured often have a longer recovery time, which can lead to severe injuries.

Abuse can result in any of the following:

    • Dehydration
    • Falls
    • Sexual Abuse
    • Bedsores
    • Malnutrition
    • Chemical or Physical Restraints
    • Medication Errors
    • Unsanitary or Unhygienic Conditions
    • Wrongful Death

If you believe any form of abuse has occurred please call the White Plains nursing home lawyers at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP® at (914) 336-5995 or toll-free, 24/7 at 1800LAW1010 (1-800-529-1010).


 

Wrongful Death

The sudden loss of a loved one is one of the hardest things you and your family can experience. Unfortunately this happens all too frequently. We know how you feel and are here to help your family through this difficult time. Hiring a wrongful death law firm can be one of the best decisions you make when deciding your next steps. Here at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP®, we want to make sure you get a fair settlement for compensation.

Wrongful death law is complex and technical in New York State; we have a team in White Plains experienced in understanding the details of these law suits. The following are some variables that the jury takes into consideration when evaluating a wrongful death case in court:

  • Character, habits and ability of the deceased
  • Services the deceased would have performed
  • Portion of the deceased’s earnings that would have been spent to care for and support the family
  • The intellectual, moral and physical training guidance and assistance of the deceased that would have been passed down to future generations
  • Loss of companionship and love
  • Loss of support

New York Statute of Limitations states the administrator/executor of the estate has up to two years from their initial knowledge of the death to file a wrongful death claim. In some wrongful death cases, compensation may also include punitive damages if a certain level of negligence or reckless conduct was associated with the death.
