New York Unsafe Group Home Facilities Advocates
Our law firm understands the extreme emotional hardships associated with caring for children and adults whose medical and psychological needs extend beyond your control or capabilities. The decision to place a loved one in a group home, nursing home or assisted living center can be very difficult.
Unfortunately, many facilities fail to perform due diligence when assigning roommates. At Adams Law Firm, P.C., our attorneys understand the emotional and physical injuries involved with not only improper roommate selection, but also unsafe conditions.
Often, facilities ignore residents' special needs when they look to maximize space. When one roommate's psychological or medical needs eclipse those of the other, serious consequences could occur. If your loved one was improperly matched up with a roommate, or the facility failed to remedy the situation after they were notified, we can protect your loved one's rights.
Dangerous roommates in nursing homes may be hard to notice, especially if your loved one is unable to speak or is bedridden. Our lawyers can investigate these situations from every angle to determine the best course of action. Our diligence can also prove liability.
Nursing homes, group homes and assisted living centers are obligated to provide safe environments for their residents. When safety regulations or procedures are ignored or not properly maintained, your loved one could suffer traumatic injuries, or even death.
At Adams Law Firm, P.C., we understand complex safety regulations. We can help you or your loved one pursue compensation for unsafe conditions. We have experience with a vast range of regulations involving:
- Residents wandering off grounds
- Improper maintenance
- Hazardous materials
- Injuries from falls
- Insufficient evacuation plans
- Improper fire alarms
