We trust the care and attention of our elderly loved ones to nursing homes and other health care facilities. Unfortunately, when that trust is misplaced, elderly residents can suffer injuries, worsening conditions or even death. Contact a lawyer if you are concerned about the safety of your loved one in a nursing facility.
The Staten Island nursing home abuse attorneys at Ameduri Galante & Friscia have extensive experience guiding clients through even the most complex legal matters. We understand that it can be frustrating to learn of the mistreatment of a loved one. Mistreatment, abuse or neglect must be confronted through every legal avenue. We will vigorously pursue the nursing home staff, management or board of directors to ensure that these conditions are improved and the responsible staff members are held accountable for their actions.
Brooklyn Elder Abuse Attorney
While many people think of abuse as the action of attacking or injuring someone, it can also refer to neglect. By failing to turn a bedridden resident, a nurse will likely cause bed sores. By not providing food and water at the appropriate times, a nurse can cause dehydration, malnutrition and a host of related illnesses. If you believe that your elderly loved one is suffering needlessly at the hands of trusted medical professionals, turn to us; it is our goal to fully investigate the matter and protect your family member.
We are well-equipped to handle cases involving wrongful death, bed sores, dehydration, malnutrition, falls, transportation errors, wandering/elopement, inadequate staffing, poorly trained staff or financial abuse. Our New York attorneys will aggressively fight to ensure that a nursing home is held accountable for not providing the minimum care to their residents.
If you have questions regarding nursing home abuse or any of our related practice areas, we encourage you to schedule a consultation at Ameduri Galante & Friscia to discuss the matter in greater detail. Call us at 347-682-2351 or contact us online.
