New York Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Aggressive Legal Representation for Nursing Home Abuse Victims

nursing home abuseMany New York residents currently live in nursing homes or will live in nursing homes at some point in their lives. Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are supposed to be places where we can entrust our elderly or disabled loved ones to live comfortably and safely. Unfortunately many nursing homes in New York are owned and operated by parties who do not feel the same and who are simply motivated by profits rather then the needs of their elderly or disabled residents.

If you have made the difficult decision to place your loved one in the care of a nursing home or an assisted living facility, you have the right to expect that your loved one will not be injured as a result of abuse or neglect. Nursing home abuse is a reality in New York and it is important that the nursing home or facility that was responsible for injuring your loved one be held accountable for the actions of its negligent staff members.

The New York nursing home abuse lawyers at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. stand up for the rights of abused or neglected nursing home victims. We are aggressive, yet compassionate, in fighting for the rights of our elderly clients and will do whatever it takes to seek financial compensation from the parties who injured them.

The Common Causes and Symptoms of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse and neglect can be caused by a number of different things. Among the more common causes are the following:

  • Understaffing at the facility
  • Employment of unqualified staff
  • Inadequate employee background checks
  • Inadequate maintenance of medical equipment
  • Inadequate cleaning of the facility

Regardless of what caused your elderly or disabled loved one to become the victim of a nursing home or assisted living facility, the signs and symptoms are often difficult to spot. As such, it is important to lookout for the common warning signs, including:

  • Untreated bedsores, wounds, cuts or bruises
  • Sudden and unexplained weight loss
  • Abnormally pale complexion
  • Poor personal hygiene
  • Torn clothing or broken personal items
  • Blood on bed sheets

At Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C., we believe your elderly loved one has the right to be heard and the right to bring his or her abuser to justice. Our New York nursing home abuse attorneys will investigate the facts of your case to determine all the possible parties, including the facility, which can be held responsible. Although filing a personal injury claim will not undo the harm done to your elderly loved one, it can bring a sense of justice and closure.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers.
