Top-Ranked Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers in New York - We Treat our Clients with Compassion

When you entrust a nursing home to care for your elderly parent or other relative, you have a right to expect that your loved one will be treated with respect and watched over by a team of professionals.

Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Nursing home abuse and neglect is all too common throughout New York and across the United States, and the victims are some of our country’s most vulnerable. This abuse and neglect can take many forms, all of which are disturbing in their own right, and can lead to the declining health and even death of your loved one.

Signs of Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

No one wants to imagine that someone could hurt their elderly parent, or allow them to be hurt, but it does happen. The U.S. Administration on Aging lists the following as potential warning signs of elder abuse:

  • Bruises, pressure marks, broken bones, abrasions or burns.
  • Unexplained withdrawal from normal activities, a sudden change in alertness or unusual depression.
  • Bedsores, unattended medical needs, poor hygiene or weight loss.
  • Strained or tense relationships, frequent arguments between the caregiver and elderly person.
