Unexplained Bruises and Cuts

New York Attorneys Investigate Unexplained Bruises and Cuts in Nursing Home Residents Unexplained Bruises And Cuts

When a loved one enters a nursing home, you should expect and demand to be kept apprised of his or her condition. Should cuts and bruises develop over the course of an elderly resident’s stay in a nursing home, the staff has a responsibility to provide you, as the primary caregiver, with an explanation of how these injuries occurred. If they are unable to do so, you have a right to investigate. Fortunately, with the lawyers at the Law Offices of Thomas L. Gallivan, PLLC on your side, you do not need to do this investigating on your own. For over forty years, our attorneys have defended the rights of nursing home residents and their families. If a nursing home staff cannot or will not explain an injury to your loved one, let us help you find an answer.

We have fought, and will continue to fight, to bring nursing homes to justice when an elderly resident is a victim of abuse, be it from a bruise, a bedsore, internal bleeding, a subdural hematoma, a fracture or any other injury. Quite often a bruise on an elderly loved one in a nursing home has an explanation. When it does not, we are here to help you get answers.

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
