Elder Abuse Advocates Ready to Fight for You

People in assisted living facilities or nursing homes are often the victims of negligence. If facilities are not properly maintained and patients are not properly attended to, it can result in injuries and sometimes even death. From preventing bed sores to ensuring the general well-being of all residents, caretakers have a responsibility to keep our loved ones safe.

If your loved one has fallen ill while in the care of a nursing home, they may have been the victim of negligence. Contact the New York nursing home negligence attorneys of Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP today. We've recovered millions of dollars in relief for clients who have been injured and wronged by negligent parties and are ready to provide you and your loved ones actionable, effective legal options during this difficult time.

Examples of Nursing Home Injuries

Bed Sores/Decubitus Ulcers
Some bedsores, also called decubitus ulcers, are caused by a lack of blood flow to an area of the skin from prolonged pressure to one area on the body. Normally because people are moving often these sores don't happen, but in nursing homes people are not always able to reposition themselves in order to avoid getting these types of sores. Our loved ones rely on their caretakers to help them move to avoid these sores that can lead to infections sometimes unfortunately resulting in death. If your loved one has acquired a staph or another infection while in the care of a nursing home, it's important to contact an attorney to protect your rights.

Nursing Home Acquired Illness
Nursing homes are required to be kept cleanly. When they are understaffed or poorly managed it is easy to see how an illness can spread amongst its residents. Shared living space must be kept sanitized to prevent life threatening diseases from infecting your loved ones.

If you or your loved one has fallen in a nursing home as a result of another's negligence, we may be able to help. We can evaluate your case, help you file a report, and ensure you and your family get the justice you deserve.
