New York Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers Uncompromisingly Fighting for Your Rights

Statistics estimate between 1-2 million Americans age 65 or older have experienced conditions that could be legally classified as nursing home abuse. This equates to 2-10% of all individuals who stay in a nursing home each year.

And, did you know that nursing home abuse cases are one of the most under-reported types of personal injury case?

The unfortunate reality is that every time your loved one sets foot in a nursing home, he or she is a potential abuse victim – abuse occurs in 1 in 3 nursing homes across the United States.

Could you imagine what our country would be like if we had a murder rate of 2-10%?

Most patients are treated with respect, but if your loved one is treated poorly, he or she may have been the target of nursing home abuse.

Why does this abuse happen?

Nursing home administrators face intense pressure to maximize profits, so they cut corners when it comes to hiring employees, training them, or caring for the facilities.

We have a family tradition of legally protecting the most vulnerable members of our society that goes back more than 90 years.

How do You Know If You Need a Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer in New York?

Very often, your loved one is very embarrassed of the abuse happening to them. They may not want to communicate the details of what’s going on. In other cases, they may not have the ability to accurately relay important information to you.

When your loved one can’t take care of their own needs, then it becomes your responsibility to advocate for them. Signs you loved one is being abuse can include:

  • Unusually severe weight loss
  • Poor personal hygiene
  • Bruises and unexplained injuries
  • Strange changes in their behavior
  • Infections, dehydration, or sepsis
  • Personal property that’s suddenly gone missing
  • Fractures in their bones

If you suspect your loved one is being abused it’s better to act sooner rather than later. Abusers don’t suddenly change their behavior or stop it entirely. If no one addresses the situation, they will continue or escalate their behavior.

Types of Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuits

Unfortunately, there are many different types of nursing home abuse that can occur. Some of those include:

  • Physical abuse – Force feeding, overmedication, or excessive use of physical restraints
  • Emotional abuse – Verbal degradation, threats, isolation, insults, or withholding meals
  • Sexual abuse – Unwanted sexual contact forced upon a resident too weak or ill to give consent
  • Neglect – Failure of a senior’s caretaker to provide the expected degree of care
