As an experienced Buffalo Personal Injury Lawyer, I get phone calls on a regular basis from family members or even residents of nursing homes regarding mistreatment or injuries that they, or their loved one has received while in a nursing home. Oftentimes, their first question is, “what can I do about it?”. One of the first steps to take if you or your loved one is a victim of nursing home negligence is to notify the State Department of Health, who will perform an investigation on their own. Once they perform their investigation, they will share their findings with the family. The next steps you can take are similar to any other injury case. These include photo documenting any injuries, bruises, bedsores, or anything else that you think would show physical evidence of the happening or the mistreatment. If you have questions regarding nursing home negligence, please contact our office. We offer free consultations and can help put your mind at ease in these troubling times.
