New York Nursing Home Malpractice Claims Defense Lawyers
Allegations of nursing home abuse and/or neglect are very serious and should be treated accordingly. Signs and symptoms that may be misinterpreted by laypeople may lead many families to wrongly believe their loved one has been abused or neglected. Since family members are fiercely protective of their loved ones who reside in a nursing home, individuals who own, operate, or are employed by a nursing home may find themselves facing groundless claims of nursing home malpractice.
