Nursing Home Neglect And Malpractice

We trust nursing homes to take good care of parents, grandparents and other loved ones. When that trust is violated, it is heartbreaking to watch the one you love suffer illness or injury. Unfortunately, nursing home neglect and abuse are a reality. Injuries such as fractures, bedsores and bruises are typical signs of abuse and neglect, which can lead to lasting injury or even death.

At Zwiebel and Fairbanks, LLP, our lawyers are trusted advocates for nursing home residents throughout the Capital Region and the Hudson Valley. Much of our practice focuses on helping seniors affected by bedsores as well as those who have fallen or been dropped by staff.

Are you concerned about the care your loved one is receiving in a nursing home or other care facility? Learn how you can help.

Holding Negligent Nursing Homes Accountable

Call Today For A Free Consultation

Both federal and New York state law require that nursing homes provide adequate and appropriate care. Anything less is an abandonment of the duty owed to the elderly and the infirm, which constitutes nursing home malpractice. If this has happened to you or someone you love, we are available to help. We will investigate what has occurred. If the injuries suffered are significant, and we find that the care provided was not adequate or appropriate, or was abusive, we will pursue a monetary award on your behalf.
