Taking Action After Nursing Home Neglect And Elder Abuse
Nursing homes are charged with the responsibility for caring for the most vulnerable of our population. People who cannot care for themselves are trusted by loved ones to nursing homes and other care facilities. Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are responsible for the health, well-being and safety of their elderly and incapacitated residents. Families want to know that their loved ones will be cared for, as making the decision to move an individual to a nursing home is never an easy one. Unfortunately, not all facilities live up to their responsibilities.
At the New York law firm of Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, our lawyers are sensitive to the needs of family members who suspect that their elderly loved one is the victim of nursing home neglect or abuse. We have handled cases for the elderly throughout our 60 years of practice and continue to fight for the rights of the elderly and incapacitated.
