Wrongful Death

Compassionate Representation When Nursing Home Deaths Occur

Elderly people are placed in nursing homes because when they are no longer able to handle certain aspects of their care. When nursing home residents are injured or die due to abuse or neglect, it is both an outrage and a tragedy.

The lawyers of the New York personal injury firm of Smiley & Smiley, LLP, have helped numerous families achieve the comfort of a fair legal outcome in cases of nursing home negligence and wrongful death. Do you know or suspect your loved one passed away in a nursing home due to:

  • Poor care leading to bedsores?
  • "Elopement" (in which residents are allowed to leave the safety of a nursing home)?
  • A preventable slip-and-fall accident?
  • Malnutrition or dehydration?
  • The use of excessive chemical or physical restraints?
