Long Island Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

Our Lawyers are Representing Victims of Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence on Long Island

There are millions of adults in the US receiving some type of long-term nursing care. Many of these people are elders living in nursing homes. The decision to place our loved ones in a nursing home is not an easy one to make. We research, interview, and ultimately choose the place with which we feel comfortable. Often, finances also play a role in our decision.

We trust that nursing home administrators and employees will treat our loved ones with respect, compassion, and kindness. They have duties to provide care to their residents. They are legally responsible for their safety and well-being. When someone violates these responsibilities, they should be held accountable.

Nursing home operators and employees often try to minimize or ignore reports of abuse and neglect. The victims might not have the physical or emotional ability to stand up for themselves. It is often the family members of nursing home abuse victims on Long Island, who must act to protect them.

If your loved one is the victim of abuse and neglect in a nursing home in Nassau County, Suffolk County, or Queens, you need someone with experience advocating for their legal rights and keeping them safe from additional harm. The Long Island nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP are here to help you. We know how to prove negligence and understand the rules and regulations that govern nursing homes. We know how difficult it is to watch someone you love get hurt by the people entrusted with their care. You owe it to your family to hold nursing homes liable for abuse and neglect. Call Alonso Krangle, LLP at 800- 403-6191, to discuss your Long Island nursing home abuse claim today.

Nursing Home Abuse Can be Physical, Emotional, and Financial

There are approximately 620 nursing homes in New York. Approximately 80 of them are in Nassau and Suffolk Counties on Long Island. There are nearly 60 in Queens County.
In these nursing homes, abuse and neglect can occur in a variety of ways.

Abuse can be physical. Some examples of physical nursing home abuse include sexually assaulting, punching, kicking, smacking, pinching, and pushing.

Abuse can be emotional. Some examples of emotional abuse include threatening, ignoring, berating, insulting, and isolating.

Abuse can be financial. Some examples of financial abuse include stealing credit cards, writing checks, and taking valuable items.

Other forms of abuse and neglect common in nursing homes include:

  • Using excessive physical restraint
  • Using unnecessary chemical restraints to keep a patient sedated
  • Withholding food and drink
  • Withholding medication
  • Refusing to maintain cleanliness and hygiene of resident
  • Refusing to allow adequate mobility of the resident
  • Withholding medical attention
  • Sexually abusing
  • Making errors with medication
  • Ignoring or missing signs of distress
  • Failing to move a bedridden patient
  • Failing or doing insufficient background checks on employees

Nursing home abuse and neglect results in serious harm to the people we love. Many residents in nursing homes are not in a position to defend themselves against abuse. They are already in a weakened state, making them susceptible to serious injuries.

Recognizing Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect is Essential to Keeping Your Loved One Safe

Unfortunately, signs of abuse in nursing homes on Long Island are not always obvious. Why? You might not visit the nursing home that often. You might mistake signs of abuse for things you think are signs of old age. Injuries from abuse and neglect in nursing homes are often psychological and don’t leave visible bruises.

Your loved one might not have the ability to tell you what is really going on. You should know what to look for. If you notice any of the following, consider whether someone in a nursing home may be abusing your loved one:

  • Changes in medication
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Bedsores or pressure ulcers
  • Dirty bedsheets and linens
  • Weight loss
  • Fear
  • Anxiety
  • Emotional withdrawal
  • Isolation
  • Infections
  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Head injuries
  • Bruises
  • Unexplained injuries
  • Instances of wandering or leaving the nursing home
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Fear of being left alone with someone
  • Unusual fatigue
  • Frequent illness
  • Weight gain

Our Nursing Home Lawyers Are Filing Claims for Victims of Abuse and Neglect on Long Island

There are voluminous regulations that govern nursing homes. There are federal and state laws that address staffing, cleanliness, needs of residents, qualifications of employees, and record-keeping, among other things. The Federal Nursing Home Reform Act and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services State Operations Manual cover nursing homes that receive federal funding. The New York State nursing home regulations are in Title 10 of the New York Compilation of Rules and Regulations.

Additionally, laws of negligence apply to the conduct of employees, administrators and operators of nursing homes. Nursing homes and their employees owe a duty of care to the residents. When someone violates their duty, and someone gets injured, the victim might have a negligence claim against the negligent party. A successful claim of nursing home abuse and neglect can result in significant compensation for the victim and/or the victim’s family.

Nursing home negligence in New York often involves one of the following:

  • Medication errors
  • Inadequate supervision of residents
  • Negligent hiring of employees
  • Negligent training
  • Not following laws and guidelines
  • Ignoring signs of abuse and neglect
  • Inadequate supervision of employees

Nursing homes owe you and your loved ones the duty to keep them safe and provide them with emotional and physical care. When nursing home employees fail to do so, it is often the nursing home administrators and owners that are legally responsible.

Strongly Recommend Alonso Krangle As a Highly Experienced And Respected Firm

I consulted a close friend and well respected lawyer in the mid-Atlantic region regarding my hip revision surgery due to a medical device recall. Without hesitation, he strongly recommended contacting Alonso Krangle LLP to discuss my case. In his view, Alonso Krangle possessed extensive knowledge and experience in the type of litigation my case required, as well the respect of those throughout the judicial field for their professionalism. Equally as important, their personal focus on each individual’s case gives the client a feeling they are their only concern. My friend’s assessment could not have been more accurate.

Although in New York, Alonso Krangle could not have been more responsive or accommodating if they were located here in Virginia. I cannot recall a single time when my wife or I called their office and did not speak to either Andres Alonso or David Krangle. They were always completely available and ready to answer any and all of our questions. Their advice and recommendations were always honest, sincere, and accurate enabling us to plan accordingly. Legal proceedings can be a long process, but we never felt left out or forgotten thanks to timely updates initiated by Alonso Krangle. In the end, everything turned out as Alonso Krangle estimated from the beginning. I could not have expected better personal attention or concern from a family member handling my case. As with my friend, I too, would not hesitate to strongly recommend Alonso Krangle as a highly experienced and respected firm that will treat you like family.

You’ll be in good hands!

I was involved in an accident and needed a good Personal Injury Attorney. A friend referred me to David Krangle of Alonso Krangle LLP. After my initial phone conversation with David, I was confident that I found the right Attorney. David was not only extremely thorough, he kept me updated on every stage of my case. Most importantly, he was always available for questions and followed-up promptly. In most cases, the same day. Since there was a 3-hour time zone difference, I was very appreciative from a client stand point.

With his expertise and guidance, I had a successful outcome. I felt very fortunate that David and his wonderful staff represented me.

If you ever find yourself in need of expert legal advice and guidance. I highly recommend you contact David Krangle of Alonso Krangle LLP. You’ll be in good hands!

We were very fortunate to meet David Krangle
My husband and myself had been involved in a multiple vehicle accident 5 years ago. At that time we were given the name of Mr. David Krangle, attorney. It took close to 5 years of very diligent work for Mr Krangle to complete our case to everyone’s satisfaction. During those years of endless hours and hours of work that he put into our case yet whenever we reached out to Dave (as the years allowed us to call him) he was always available to us. His patience did seem endless. His professionalism in researching everything to make our turnout perfect for us was everything we expected and let us rest knowing things are following the right path. I know we were treated with the utmost respect from various insurance companies and other attorney’s because that was something Mr Krangle made sure of. In difficult times it can be intimidating to work with a professional but we were very fortunate to meet David Krangle who had the ability to share warmth and compassion with us during a trying time. Those are traits that we admired in David Krangle and are delighted to have worked with him.

Dave Krangle Worked Restlessly On This Case Until We Won
I consider David Krangle as my attorney for many years now. Going back about 13 years ago my father was involved in a hit and run accident. David had gone the extra mile to win our case….. Mr. David Krangle worked restlessly on this case until we won the case. Since then, if anybody asks for a good attorney I recommend David Krangle with confidence. He has helped a number of my friends and relatives and they all appreciated his professionalism, prompt responses to any inquiry during case development, careful study of all details pertaining to their case. He treats his clients as family. Thank you, Mr. Krangle, wishing you a continued success, good health and prosperity.

Absolutely Instrumental in Helping Me Expose Medicare Fraud That My Former Employer Was Engaging In
When you have to fight Goliath you better call David. Dave was absolutely instrumental in helping me expose Medicare fraud that my former employer (one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world) was engaging in. Dave took the time to listen to my concerns and my evidence. He worked tirelessly to bring the best resources to table so that our case would be investigated thoroughly and prosecuted. In the end, the Goliath was defeated thanks to Dave!
