New York City personal injury attorney Kenneth A. Pryor works with people who need answers to their questions about what went wrong with the treatment or care of someone in a residential facility. Our firm has represented people in a wide range of personal injury and wrongful death cases throughout the five boroughs and Long Island. The ability of our legal team to investigate, present and prove complex liability and damages claims over tough opposition can make the decisive difference in your case.
Investigating Claims of Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect
Proving liability against nursing homes can be difficult. In many situations, the victim of negligence or abuse cannot articulate or describe what happened. Staff members and administrators might be motivated to conceal evidence, falsify records or withhold the documentation necessary to prove your case.
In some situations, witnesses who would otherwise be willing to share what they know can be pressured or intimidated into noncooperation with an investigation of the facts. Our law firm’s experience with the special demands of nursing home negligence litigation can go a long way toward overcoming these obstacles.
The Pryor Law Firm advises victims and their families about their legal options across the full range of accidental and intentional injuries that can occur in a nursing home. These include:
- Falls caused by improper supervision or inadequate assistance
- Bedsores or pressure sores due to neglect
- Medication errors
- Overuse of sedation
- Assaults or abusive treatment by staff members or fellow residents
- Improper use of restraints amounting to elder abuse
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Incidents of a resident’s wandering away from a facility
Many of these problems are the result of understaffing, poor training or irresponsible employee screening and hiring practices. Our experience with the investigation and proof of claims against nursing homes helps us uncover the truth of what happened to a vulnerable victim in residential care.
