Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers in New York

Fighting Against Nursing Home Neglect, Abuse And Malpractice

Helping Protect Those Most Vulnerable

Deciding whether or not to place an elderly family member in a nursing home or assisted living facility is often a difficult situation. However, once the choice is made, we trust the facility’s staff and medical professionals to provide our loved ones with compassionate, capable care. After all, a nursing home should be a place where the elderly go to safely enjoy rest and comfort. Sadly, what we expect and what actually occurs in nursing homes can be quite different.

At Gash & Associates, P.C., we understand how upsetting it can be when trying to deal with nursing home abuse, neglect or malpractice. Some of us have even experienced these issues while making similar decisions for our own family members.

When you seek guidance from one of our attorneys, you can trust that we will do everything possible to obtain the best outcome for you, including the elimination of the harmful conduct and compensation for your injuries.
