Signs of Nursing Home Abuse in New York City

Identifying signs of neglect and abuse is crucial in cases in which a loved one has been affected. Some of the most common signs of neglect in nursing homes include:

  • Untreated or infected bedsores
  • Malnourishment and dehydration
  • Unexplained bruises, cuts, or broken bones
  • Soiled bedding or clothing, and unsanitary conditions
  • Behavioral changes, depression, or anxiety around staff

We’re attuned to these telltale signs of neglect and abuse, meticulously investigating cases, identifying violations, and guiding you through the steps to seek relief.

Pursuing Accountability and Compensation

Nursing home owners and operators can and should be held accountable for lapses in care that result in the injury or death of a resident. Nursing homes are consistently understaffed, which can lead to neglect and injuries. Furthermore, it is all too common for nursing homes to hire unlicensed or untrained individuals, which can also lead to detrimental outcomes. Additionally, in the context of COVID-19, inadequate safety measures and failure to implement proper protocols may result in liability for related injuries or fatalities.

Securing Just Compensation for Victims

In cases of negligence or abuse, compensation may cover:

  • Medical expenses such as treatment, surgery, rehabilitation, and other related costs
  • Compensation for physical pain and emotional trauma, addressing the suffering endured
  • Punitive damages for intentional or reckless infringement upon residents’ rights

Our experienced litigators assess each aspect of your case to advise you on available compensation, tirelessly pursuing maximum recovery.
