Our Long Island Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers Are Here To Stand Up For You And Your Family

Nursing home neglect is a problem in nursing homes across New York. We place our trust in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, but often these facilities fail to live up to what they promise. In many cases, the elderly fall victim to neglect and abuse, both physical and emotional, and the consequences are devastating.

Some nursing homes attempt to save money and maximize profit by using inadequately trained staff, or the staff is simply unqualified. If someone you love has suffered a personal injury due to the actions or inaction of a nursing home, contact the Long Island nursing home neglect lawyers at The Law Office of Jeena R. Belil, PC. We understand how devastating these cases can be, and we want to help your family seek justice and accountability.

The Serious Consequences Of Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing home neglect can result in a wide-variety of life-threating injuries and scenarios, including:

  • Injury due to a fall
  • Bedsores, pressure sores and decubitus ulcers
  • Malnutrition/dehydration
  • Insufficient medical care
  • Medication errors

Nursing home neglect may also result in inadequate supervision, which is especially dangerous for patients suffering from dementia who may wander away from the home.

Recognizing The Signs Of Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse is arguably worse than neglect because the harm is intentional. Here are some potential signs of abuse:

  • Unexplained injuries, especially injuries to the face, arms wrists and hands
  • A sudden change in the patient’s demeanor and personality, including being fearful
  • Torn clothing and broken personal items
  • Significant and unexplained weight gain or weight loss

If you suspect that your loved one has been abused or neglected, our Long Island elder abuse lawyers can help you contact the appropriate authorities in addition to seeking compensation in civil court.
