Protecting Your Family
When you must place an elderly relative in a nursing home, it is a difficult decision that involves trust. If we put the care of someone we love in the hands of someone else, we trust they’ll provide adequate care that meets a basic professional standard. When they fail, the ones we love become injured or ill. If you have a parent in a nursing home and you think they might be the victim of abuse or neglect, you need to work with an experienced team of attorneys who can help you obtain compensation and hold the facility accountable.
At Goldhaber Weber & Goldhaber, we understand the challenges you are facing. We take a personalized, professional approach, backed by experience. Serving clients throughout New York City and north of the city, our team will take the time to listen to your situation, and we will fight to obtain justice and compensation. We will help you protect the ones you love. We are able to provide service to you in Spanish and offer free initial consultations.
Types Of Nursing Home Cases
Our attorneys have experience and knowledge handling nursing home cases involving:
- Abuse: Abuse cases are the most egregious of all nursing home cases. Nurses, staff and administrators can be guilty of physical, emotional or sexual abuse. While criminal charges can be brought against the people perpetrating these crimes, there is also an opportunity for obtaining compensation from the nursing home and its insurer.
- Lack of hygiene: Nursing home staff are required to keep residents and their immediate surroundings clean. When they fail to do this, nursing home residents can suffer serious infections and illnesses.
- Failure to monitor: Nursing home residents are often less mobile and steady on their feet. When nursing home staff fails to monitor their movements, accidents like slip-and-falls, stairway falls and other related accidents are common.
- Failure to move residents: When residents are bedridden, they need to be moved regularly in order to keep their circulation flowing throughout their bodies. Failure to move residents regularly can result in bedsores and other significant problems.
- Poor nutrition or hydration: It is critical for nursing home residents to receive adequate nutrition and liquidation. Nursing home staff are required to provide adequate food and water, and failure to do so can be extremely detrimental to residents’ health.
- Poor training and understaffing: In many cases, the negligence or outright abuse from the hands of nurses and staff is a result of poor training, understaffing or inadequate security.
- Elder financial exploitation: In some cases, nursing home staff take advantage of their residents by manipulating them emotionally, sometimes even coercing them through threats, in order to exploit them financially.
If you or a beloved family member has been abused, neglected or taken advantage of by nursing home staff or administration, our personal injury attorneys will fight for your family and help you obtain maximum compensation for what you have suffered.
