Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home negligence and elder abuse has many victims. Every day, elderly and mentally impaired residents of nursing homes in New York State suffer needlessly at nursing home and other long-term care facilities that place profits before the quality of care. The families and friends of the victims suffer as well when their loved ones in poorly run nursing homes and other assisted living facilities across the country.

The personal injury lawyers at Flint & Granich are dedicated to providing victims and their families with the information and resources they need to help protect against abuse, neglect, and mistreatment suffered at the hands of nursing homes and their staff. We believe that it is reasonable to expect that our loved ones will be properly treated and cared for in their golden years, and handle cases involving:

  • Medication errors
  • Falls and fractures
  • Physical or chemical restraints
  • Physical abuse
  • Infections
  • Bed sores
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Wrongful death
  • Sexual assault

    As the population of the United States ages, the demands placed on the medical system to care for the elderly are becoming overwhelming. While it is difficult enough to place a family member in a home, it is even more difficult to see that family member suffer under the care of an abusive, overburdened, and under trained nursing home staff. If a family member has been neglected, abused, or otherwise injured in a nursing home or assisted living facility, it is important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights.
