Nursing Home Claims

Proudly Serving Buffalo & Western New York

Watching an elderly family member grow older and fall victim to the ailments of aging can be very hard. When caring for the elderly loved one has become too complicated, a family may make the difficult decision to entrust the care of the elder to a nursing home facility. Most nursing home facilities are capable of providing excellent care for elderly residents. However, due to various reasons such as understaffing, inadequate training, or poorly paid employees, certain facilities may not be fulfilling their legal and ethical obligations to appropriately care for the resident. For any family or friend who discovers their elderly loved one may be the subject of nursing home negligence or abuse it can be absolutely devastating. The important thing for loved ones and the resident to understand is that they have legal rights and recourse if they, or the person they love, has been subject to abusive or neglectful treatment. Let the attorneys at Fitzgerald & Roller discuss your options with you and your family today.
