New York Nursing Home Lawyers Protecting Rights of Victims who Suffer Infections

Infection Nursing home residents are frequently subject to infection over the course of their stay. The age and often weakened condition of our elderly loved ones leaves them susceptible to various forms of illness. While these infections are common, that does not mean that they are unavoidable. It is the duty of the nursing home facility to ensure that all reasonable measures are in place to circumvent such ailments. Should an unfortunate infection occur despite preventative care, it is the facility’s responsibility to treat the illness and ensure that a recurrence does not take place. Unfortunately in many instances where the infection or other ailment was avoidable, the resident has been neglected by staff at the facility.

Client Reviews
Last year I was injured in an accident, and for the first time, needed the advice of an attorney regarding how to proceed. I was referred to Thomas Gallivan through a family member who is a lawyer in Massachusetts. I am beyond pleased with how Thomas handled my case. He was knowledgeable, professional, and although the case was not as straightforward as some, he used every resource to ensure a positive outcome. Thomas communicated with me regularly and I felt completely informed and confident in his ability. He expertly negotiated a fair settlement that I was very happy with. The entire experience was extremely positive, during a stressful time for me. Thank you Thomas. Melanie
