Brooklyn Fatal Accident Attorney
The decision to put a parent, spouse or other loved one in a nursing home is based on trust that the facility and its employees will follow basic standards of care and responsibility. When that trust is violated and a patient dies as a result, nursing homes deserve to held accountable.
I am Daniel A. Kalish, a Brooklyn, Bronx and Westchester County attorney with extensive experience helping families pursue claims for wrongful death in nursing homes. If a love one has died in a nursing home, contact me today for a free consultation to discuss whether you have a claim.
Seeking Accountability for Your Family's Loss
Nursing homes exist to provide care and support to patients who can no longer care for themselves. When these facilities do not live up to their responsibilities, their neglect and abuse can result in fatalities. The following are some common causes of death in nursing homes:
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Bed sores (decubitus ulcers)
- Dehydration and malnutrition
By filing a wrongful death and/or survival action against the nursing home where your loved one died, you may be in a better position to get to the bottom of exactly what happened and whose fault it was. That way, the responsible parties can be held accountable.
I am passionate about helping the families of nursing home abuse and neglect victims pursue justice and fair compensation. If you need help bringing a legal claim for a nursing home fatality, don't hesitate to contact my office to schedule an appointment.
