Protecting Victims Of Physical, Sexual, Financial And Psychological Abuse
It’s hard to imagine that the institutions we hire to care for our vulnerable family members instead allow them to be abused by staff members and other residents. Unfortunately, elder abuse can and does occur in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.
At Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP, our attorneys have more than 75 years of combined experience helping people who have been injured in nursing homes and elder care facilities. If your loved one has been injured due to abuse in a nursing home or long-term care facility, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions. We serve clients in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten Island, as well as Greater New York.
Protecting Our Most Vulnerable Citizens From Abuse
There are many different kinds of abuse that may occur in elder care facilities. The following are examples:
- Assault of residents
- Sexual abuse of residents
- Theft of residents’ personal property
- Identify theft
- Misuse of a resident’s credit cards or bank card
- Psychological abuse
- Excessive use of restraints or sedatives
Most abuse in a nursing home setting is due to understaffing, lack of supervision and improper hiring. Holding nursing homes financially accountable for abuse of residents can provide a powerful motivation for these facilities to protect our most vulnerable citizens. Our medical malpractice law firm has obtained tens of millions of dollars in compensation for our severely injured clients.
