Even the score against the bedsore.
As Nursing Home Negligence and Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys that specialize in cases surrounding Bedsores, Dalli & Marino, LLP makes sure that you understand the law, your rights and what you CAN do to take action in these circumstances.
Recently, our firm represented a young, wheelchair-bound man who developed horrible bedsores because he wasn’t provided with the proper cushions to relieve pressure from his back and legs. After proving that the nursing home neglected him, a jury awarded several hundred thousands of dollars in damages.
If you have a loved one in a nursing home, they are at risk for bedsores, falls and medical errors. Since 2007, Dalli & Marino, LLP has focused its practice on the prosecution and trial of nursing home negligence and elder abuse. Specifically, attorney John Dalli has tried cases concerning the failure of nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and hospitals to provide their patients with good care that is consistent with New York State and Federal Regulations.
Dalli & Marino, LLP has handled hundreds of cases involving elderly residents of nursing homes who suffer injuries such as bedsores, falls, dehydration, medication errors and sexual abuse. As a result, we have gained particular expertise in navigating these highly sensitive matters resulting in numerous successful verdicts and settlements. For example, Dalli & Marino LLP obtained a large jury verdict against a nursing home that failed to properly treat a resident’s bedsores over the course of several months. During the trial, Dalli & Marino LLP proved that the nursing home falsified medical records and his client was awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Do not let your loved one suffer bedsores without receiving compensation for their pain and suffering. Even if your loved one has passed away, a lawsuit can be brought on behalf of the estate to recover for the suffering that bedsores caused.
