Since 2007 Dalli & Marino, LLP has focused its practice on the prosecution and trial of nursing home negligence and elder abuse matters. 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 he has 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 who failed to properly treat a resident’s bedsore 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 conscious pain and suffering the bedsore caused.
