Making the decision to place a loved one in a nursing home can be a difficult decision. You want to ensure that they are safe, respected and well cared for. Unfortunately, not all nursing homes are created equal and our loved ones may suffer injuries due to nursing home abuse and neglect.
New York State has a specialized law designed expressly to deal with cases involving nursing home abuse and neglect. New York State Public Health Law §2801-d allows people to sue nursing homes when their loved ones suffer injuries due to falls; malnutrition; physical assault; inadequate treatment; failure to diagnose; harassment and other forms of abuse and neglect. What makes §2801-d very special is that it allows people to seek compensation for damages including physical harm; death; financial loss; emotional harm and injury to one’s dignity. By allowing people to sue for emotional harm and injury to their dignity, §2801-d provides a special right to a those of us who can’t stand up for ourselves.
