Standing Up For Victims Of Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing homes and other long-term care facilities are responsible for caring for our loved ones and keeping them safe from harm. It is a tremendous breach of trust when nursing home staff and administration are negligent and their actions lead to injury and death.

At Surdez & Perez P.C., we are passionate advocates for victims of nursing home abuse in Queens and throughout the New York City metropolitan area. We are here to help you or your loved one obtain fair and just compensation for this loss, while holding negligent parties responsible for their actions.

Causes Of Nursing Home Negligence

There are many causes of nursing home negligence. Sadly and predictably, many of those reasons have to do with saving money. When nursing homes cut corners by not hiring enough staff members and not paying for quality training, innocent residents suffer as a result.

Nursing home negligence can have devastating results on elders and the disabled. Common nursing home injuries include:

  • Bedsores (decubitus ulcers)
  • Injuries sustained from falls
  • Restraint injuries
  • Medication errors
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Injuries sustained while wandering off the premises

We have the investigative resources to uncover the negligent actions that led to these injuries. We are prepared to handle litigation against nursing homes throughout New York City, Long Island and the entire metro area.
