Silberstein, Awad & Miklos, P.C (SAM) offers a complimentary first consultation for their updated service of legal representation for nursing home abuse victims. This consultation is offered to residents in NYC including the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk.

According to statistics provided by the General Accounting Office, there are over 1.5 million elderly people residing in over 17,000 nursing homes across the country. At both the Federal and State levels there are severely inadequate safeguards to protect from abuse.

The lawyers at SAM warn families with elderly people that abuse can take place in many different forms. The most common type of abuse is physical and this can take place anywhere. Physical abuse is any behavior or action that causes physical harm

In addition to the obvious forms of sexual abuse, this law firm also lists taking explicit photographs and inappropriate contact, when a resident cannot give consent, as sexual abuse. Those undergoing financial abuse may be forced to sign blank checks, change their will or have their cash or credit cards taken from them.

People subjected to intentional or unintentional neglect can receive legal assistance from SAM. Failing to provide adequate food and water, poor standards of hygiene, and not giving medication on time can be classified as neglect.

As much as 95% of the nursing homes in the USA are understaffed. Inadequate personnel can result in the lack of time available to provide acceptable levels of care. Furthermore, new employees are sometimes hired without the required background checks. SAM will be able to evaluate whether the State and Federal rules are being followed. If rules are not followed, the nursing home can lose its license.

A satisfied client said, “A friend of mine referred me to S.A.M. after my aunt was permanently hurt while under a nursing home’s care. Thanks to their attorneys and paralegals, my aunt was well compensated for her injuries without going to trial and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome.”
