Malnutrition and Dehydration
Lawyers Hold Nursing Homes Accountable for Elder Abuse
Older adults need not only an adequate amount of food and hydration, they also depend on vitamins and minerals to make them stronger. Nursing homes are responsible to provide nutritious meals to avoid any serious health problems.
When failing to properly care for patients, they need to be held accountable. For more than 40 years, our New York attorneys at Gallivan & Gallivan have protected accident victims from nursing home abuse. We are aggressive trial attorneys, ready to represent you and your family.

Extensive Experience Representing Nursing Home Abuse Clients
We have a strong background fighting for accident victims. Our attorneys, Gallivan and Thomas Gallivan have represented hundreds of clients over the past four decades, including victims of nursing home abuse. We know firsthand the seriousness of malnutrition and dehydration which can cause life-threatening health problems, such as:
- Urinary tract infections
- Reduction of muscle mass
- Memory loss and confusion
- Weakness, resulting in limited movements that lead to bed sores
If not treated, malnutrition and dehydration will eventually cause death. Nursing home abuse is a serious problem — we fight hard to prove negligence and hold the negligent accountable. Our attorneys have a strong track record obtaining as much compensation for accident victims to cover pain and suffering, treatment, as well as on-going medical needs. We are ready to provide you with the best representation possible.
