Brooklyn Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys
Our Elderly Loved Ones Deserve Proper Care, Respect & Compassion

Nursing homes and elder care centers across Brooklyn boast of their licensed, well-trained, and experienced staff. They claim to provide caring, safe environments for our elderly loved ones. While some fulfil these promises, others fall short. Abuse, neglect, and carelessness injure the very people entrusted to nursing home staff and elder caregivers.

Our Brooklyn nursing home abuse lawyers at Silbowitz, Garafola, Silbowitz, Schatz & Frederick, L.L.P. are here to put an end to the mistreatment and neglect of residents and patients at assisted living facilities and elder care centers. We have been fighting for the elderly for over 20 years, stopping abuse in its tracks and holding caregivers accountable for the atrocities of physical and sexual abuse, neglect, and negligence.

To find out how we can help with your case, give us a call at (646) 681-7055. Your consultation is free and strictly confidential.

Nursing Home Negligence vs. Abuse

Negligence and abuse are two very different things, but either can cause serious injury or even the wrongful death of an elderly patient at a Brooklyn nursing home. Negligence may be defined as a failure to provide proper care, such as a lack of proper nutrition provided to patients. Abuse involves intentional acts to cause harm, such as physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual assault, or financial abuse.

It is important to look for potential signs of abuse or neglect:

  • Unexplained/recurring injuries
  • Emotional withdrawal
  • Fear of one or more caregivers
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Constant use of sedatives
  • Sexually transmitted diseases
  • Bedsores
  • Infections or sepsis
  • Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents
  • Wandering or elopement

If you’ve noticed any of these signs or suspect something is amiss, contact our Brooklyn nursing home abuse attorneys immediately. We can talk to you about what you observe and can help you go through the appropriate channels to report the abuse or negligence and take legal action.
