NY Assisted Living Wrongful Death Attorneys
Nursing home negligence is often the result of lack of supervision, inadequate training and understaffing. When nursing homes cut corners on spending and fail to provide adequately trained personnel, the residents are left to suffer.
Many nursing home deaths can be attributed to:
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Untreated infections
- Falling accidents
- Wandering off/elopement
- Misuse of physical or chemical restraints
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
- Medication errors
The nursing home may claim that the death was not its fault — that the victim was old and frail and died of natural causes. Our lawyers know how to find the facts to determine the true cause of death. We thoroughly investigate nursing home death claims to establish negligence, and to help our clients achieve favorable legal results.
