Personal Injury Attorneys
Albany, New York, Elder Abuse Attorneys
When you make the difficult decision to move an elderly family member into a nursing home or assisted living facility, the last thing you expect is that the people responsible for their care might actually do them harm. Unfortunately, it can happen. If it has happened to your family, contact the personal injury lawyers and New York elder abuse attorneys at Hacker Murphy, LLP.
Our New York elder abuse attorneys hold nursing homes and caregivers responsible for negligence and abuse. Nothing is worse than putting your trust in someone and having that trust shattered by negligent or malicious acts including improper medical treatment and a failure to maintain the nursing home in a safe condition. In the case of nursing home abuse, the feelings of anger, mistrust, and a sense for justice are even stronger because those you love are involved. Whether it is your parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or any family member, the idea of them being abused or neglected at the hands of their caregivers is almost too much to bear.
We can help your family through this difficult time. Our first step will be to listen with a compassionate ear. Next, we will plan a course of action designed to root out those responsible for inadequate care and abuse. Finally, we will aggressively pursue justice and compensation on your behalf.
Some of the many nursing home abuse and neglect issues with which we can be of assistance include:
- malnutrition, weight loss, dehydration
- lack of proper care, bed sore, ulcers,
- physical abuse, sexual abuse, mental abuse
- understaffing by care facility
- lack of restraints, use of too many restraints
- failure to supervise, failure to protect from health and safety hazards
- failure to assist in personal hygiene, failure to provide medical care
- improper dosages of medication
If a family member has been injured as a result of nursing home abuse or neglect, you deserve to be compensated. Contact the New York elder abuse attorneys at Hacker Murphy, LLP today for an initial consultation and evaluation of your situation.
While it's true that no lawsuit or financial settlement can take away the anger and emotional pain that elder care abuse can cause, it is still important to hold those responsible for abuse accountable.
Flexible appointments, including evenings and weekends, are available upon request.
