Common Issues In Nursing Home Negligence And Abuse

Incidents of nursing home abuse and neglect are not as isolated as many would like to believe. At Godosky & Gentile, we represent people who have been victimized by various forms of elder abuse, financial abuse or nursing home negligence in New York City area nursing care and assisted living facilities.

Examples of nursing home negligence include:

  • Bedsores or pressure sores (decubitus ulcers)
  • Wandering injuries/falling accidents
  • Medication errors/mistakes
  • Deliberate overmedication as a means of control
  • Malnutrition and dehydration

Understaffed Facilities

Nursing home negligence most often occurs at understaffed facilities. Patients do not get the care they need in these situations. They are not checked on often enough. They may not receive proper fluids and nutrition. They may suffer from neglect and isolation.

Here, both you and your case will receive an outstanding level of legal care and attention. We focus on meticulously preparing each case to prevail at trial from the very beginning — our approach has resulted in some of the largest recoveries in New York and often yields more reasonable settlement offers from defendants.

Our firm offers free initial consultations and flexible appointment scheduling for your convenience. We accept no legal fees for handling nursing home negligence cases unless a verdict or settlement is obtained on your behalf.
