Buffalo Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys
Dedicated Nursing Home Negligence Lawyers Serving Western New York Residents
Physical or mental abuse of our parents or relatives while in a nursing home is a crime that is many times overlooked because many senior citizens do not complain about being abused. They’re in the nursing home 24 hours a day and the biggest fear they have is retaliation by those that they accuse of abuse. And the longer the abuse goes on, the more likely it will end with deadly results.
When this abuse or neglect involves trained professionals who have a state license, you have the right to demand answers.
The nursing home industry operates at the lowest cost possible, meaning daily procedures are performed by employees that:
- Have minimal qualifications
- Are over-worked
- Have inadequate training
- Are paid low wages
These issues can often result in serious and even life-threatening problems for nursing home residents. Problems such as weight loss, failure to treat pressure sores, pain management, malnutrition, dehydration and even starvation go untreated or ignored.
But nursing homes are finally being held responsible after years of providing sub-standard care. A large number of lawsuits have been filed in the U.S in recent years. Nursing homes have had to provide compensation to the victims and their families – particularly when the abuse led to the death of a loved one.
