Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect in NY
Counsel from New York Injury Lawyers
Sadly, nursing home abuse and neglect is much more common than many people
realize. While you may desire to give your elderly loved one a comfortable,
caring environment, you can’t always control what happens in a nursing
home once you leave. Some individuals and caretakers may act out of line,
mistreating, neglecting, or even abusing the elderly residents within
the homes. At Flanzig & Flanzip, LLP, it is our mission to bring justice
to these cases. We proudly represent clients throughout Manhattan, Queens,
Long Island, Suffolk County, and Westchester.
Our New York nursing home abuse attorneys are just a phone call away.

What Does Nursing Home Abuse Look Like?
Sometimes the most difficult step is determining if abuse or neglect is
actually taking place. You may be concerned about the conditions your
loved one is living in or have a suspicion that they are not getting the
service and treatment they are due. Identifying abuse can be a frustrating,
challenging process that requires additional support.
The following can be indications that abuse or neglect is occurring:
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Medication errors
- Bruises, cuts, or abrasions
- Withdrawn or shutoff social behaviors
- Missing money or personal items
- Fear of caretakers
Nursing home mistreatment can occur due to many reasons, and abuse and
neglect can take many forms. Even if you are unsure of whether you have
a claim, it is important to have total peace of mind regarding your elderly
loved one’s living situation. Rather than waiting for more issues
to arise, it is crucial that you confront the situation as soon as possible
by speaking with an advocate who cares. That is exactly what you will
find at Flanzig & Flanzig, LLP.
