You trusted your loved one to a Nursing Home or Assisted Living Facility for quality care and attention. Residents of licensed care facilities rely on staff members for their everyday needs but sometimes staff abuses and neglects the fragile elderly and the disabled.
We have handled abuse cases involving physical and emotional harm. Let our Rockland County personal injury attorneys help you get you the money you or your family member deserves for injuries (such as bedsores, bruises, malnutrition, dehydration, medication errors, weight loss, infections) or even death from abuse and neglect.
Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities are legally required to take appropriate care in hiring and supervising their staff, and our firm has held Nursing Home and Assisted Living Facilities accountable for failing to meet their obligations and for negligence and abuse by their employees.
We fight for victims and their families who have been harmed in licensed care facilities throughout New York State. There are deadlines for taking legal action against a nursing home or an assisted living facility, known as a statute of limitations, so it is important to avoid delay and call us when you think that you may have a claim.Dental Malpractice and Medical Malpractice Have You Been Injured by a Dentist or Doctor?
Dental malpractice occurs when a dentist fails to meet the standard of care and has harmed a patient. Our Rockland County personal injury lawyers have handled numerous cases of professional negligence including diagnostic and surgical errors, improper treatment, and injuries to the teeth, gums, nerves, jaw and surrounding areas of the mouth. Our firm will use experts to determine whether a dentist or other healthcare provider violated the standard of care.
We have obtained money damages for our clients, who have been victims of malpractice. Attorney Valerie Crown holds the record for having obtained the highest dental malpractice verdict in Rockland County. Our verdicts and settlements help compensate our injured clients for pain and suffering, disfigurement, costs of future treatment, lost wages and earning capacity, and other expenses or losses arising from the negligent conduct. We work closely with our clients in holding a variety of healthcare providers accountable when they fail to use appropriate care.Workers’ Compensation Have You Been Injured on the Job?
If you were injured or became sick as a result of an injury on your job or your workplace conditions, we will help get the lost earnings and medical benefits that are rightfully yours. Under New York Workers’ Compensation Law, lost earnings are based on your average weekly wage in the year before the injury and whether the disability is partial or total. We ensure you receive the medical treatment you need for your work-related injuries such as hospital stays, surgeries, and physical therapy.
The New York State Workers’ Compensation Board oversees this insurance system. If there is a dispute over your claim, a hearing is scheduled before an administrative law judge. Our law firm can help you get the medical care you need and the benefits you deserve including negotiate a settlement or appeal a decision.
If you have an ERISA policy and you expect to be disabled from work for a short-term or long-term, whether or not it is related to your job, call our office to see if you qualify for ERISA benefits. You may also be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) if your disability is expected to last 12 months or more. We can help you file for these claims or appeal from denials.
