Did you know that New York State has laws that protect nursing home patients? The Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm's New York nursing home attorneys represent families when a loved one has been harmed due to nursing home neglect or abuse. Many cases involve bedsores, which are usually preventable, and indicate neglect. But some bedsores can worsen and lead to serious complications requiring skin grafts or even leg amputations, and some can even lead to death.
There are also many cases where elderly patients have been put in assisted living facilities when they should have been in nursing homes, and where these facilities have failed to take proper precautions against falls. We can help your family understand and seek redress in these situations.
When an elderly or disabled loved one is injured in a nursing home, the first thing families want is answers. We will evaluate your concerns from a legal perspective and, when appropriate, investigate the circumstances of your loved one's injury.
