Gallivan, PLLC, our New York Attorneys offer dedicated and aggressive legal representation to families whose loved ones have been abused. For 40 years, our attorneys have successfully fought to protect vulnerable victims. We are ready to fight for you and your family. Most people are admitted to a nursing home with the promise of quality care. Unfortunately, all too often, nursing home facilities fail to keep that promise. Vulnerable nursing home residents become victims of neglect and abuse at the hands of employees or other residents, sometimes resulting in wrongful death.

Concerned your family member has been neglected or abused? You need an experienced, aggressive legal team. Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation.

Dedicated and Aggressive Legal Representation

Nursing home staffing levels are an important factor in quality of care. According to a 2006 survey conducted by the Medicaid Fraud Unit of the New York State Office of the Attorney General, 98 percent of New York's 600 nursing homes surveyed failed to meet federal recommendations for nurse staffing levels. Based on these statistics, it is not surprising that nursing home residents often do not receive appropriate attention and care.

Our New York attorneys are committed to holding nursing homes accountable for neglect. We have fought for accident victims for more than four decades and have an in-depth understanding of nursing home abuse and neglect. Some of the most common indicators of nursing home abuse or nursing home neglect include:

Daniel Gallivan and Thomas Gallivan will fight hard to hold nursing homes accountable for the abuse inflicted on your loved one. They will seek the maximum amount of compensation possible to cover hospital bills, pain and suffering, as well as on-going medical bills. Our law firm also represents families who tragically lose a loved one in a fatal nursing home accident.

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
