Nursing Home Abuse/Neglect
Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Claims throughout the Five Boroughs
Compassionate and Assertive Personal Injury Lawyers Serving New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut
When you make the difficult decision to place a loved one in a nursing home, you expect that the caregivers there will take reasonable measures to ensure that your beloved family member doesn’t needlessly suffer. Unfortunately, with the emphasis on profitability and shareholder value, many nursing homes cut corners, failing to provide adequate staff to meet the needs of residents, failing to properly train employees to give appropriate care, and failing to oversee operations to ensure compassionate and healthy care. If your loved one has suffered unnecessarily because of carelessness or negligence by a nursing home or its staff, the Law Office of Justin A. Zeller can protect your rights.
At the Law Office of Justin A. Zeller, we provide comprehensive legal counsel to seniors and families in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island, aggressively handling nursing home abuse and neglect claims. No claim is too large or too small for us to handle. We will fully investigate your claim, so that we understand the ways your loved one has suffered, as well as what you need to properly hold the wrongdoers accountable for their misconduct.
We will carefully explain the law and the legal process, so that you understand your rights, your options and your prospects for getting the outcome you want. We will keep you involved and informed at all times, immediately notifying you of any developments in your case, so that you can make intelligent decisions about how you want to proceed. We understand the importance of regular communication with legal counsel and will strive to be available and accessible when you have questions or concerns. We are committed to answering your calls, text messages and emails in a timely manner.
Aggressive Representation in Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Cases
We offer full-service legal counsel to seniors and their families when there has been injury or loss due to nursing home neglect or abuse. We will fully investigate all potential claims, visiting the nursing home facility, if necessary, to understand exactly what happened, and interviewing all potential witnesses. We litigate all types of nursing home neglect and abuse claims, including cases involving:
- Any type of physical, emotional, financial or sexual assault, abuse or exploitation
- Failure to adequately monitor residents, leading to falls or other injuries
- Dehydration and/or malnutrition stemming from failure to observe and assist residents
- Medication errors, such as incorrect dosages or drugs, failure to provide medication or careless timing of the administration of drugs
- Failure to monitor for common ailments suffered by nursing home patients, such as decubitus ulcers (also known as bedsores)
We will help you pursue full and fair compensation for pain and suffering, loss of companionship, loss of enjoyment of life and unreimbursed medical expenses.
