BROOKLYN NURSING HOME ABUSE LAWYER
If you have family or loved ones residing at an assisted living facility or nursing home, your expectation is that they will be properly cared for, and treated with respect and dignity.
It is an unfortunate fact, however, that in the United States negligence and abuse of residents in a nursing facility is a huge problem, and one that has yet to be addressed in an effective manner.
While statutes at both the state and Federal level are in place to protect the elderly residents of nursing facilities, some of society’s most vulnerable are victimized every single day.
