- Nursing Home Negligence
With an aging baby boomers population, our Nassau County lawyers have seen an increase in cases dealing with nursing home negligence and abuse, filed by the victim or this family against a nursing home or adult home facility. As the person ages, his physical and mental capacity become diminished, necessitating a care take to look after him. However, when those medical professionals we trust to take care of our loved ones mistreat them, fail to give them medication and or proper food, injuries result. This abuse leads to aggravation of prior injuries, mental distress, dehydration, malnutrition and even death. Our lawyers can help you regain your dignity and pursue those who run these nursing homes, who may be employing inexperienced or careless staff, who may be untrained to deal with their patients.
