Physical, Mental and Emotional Abuse in New York Nursing Homes

Bronx Nursing Home Abuse

At Adams Law Firm, P.C., our attorneys understand the horrible consequences of physical, mental and emotional abuse in New York nursing homes. Oftentimes, patients are unable to clearly or effectively communicate abuse to others, including family members, or they may be threatened or too intimidated to alert someone of the abuse.

We are dedicated to protecting the rights of nursing home abuse victims. Our legal team understands how emotional and mental abuse may be difficult to prove, as there may not be overt signs or evidence. Our diligence and thorough case preparation help us to determine and prove liability.

Mental and Emotional Abuse

  • Verbal statements
  • Failure to replace soiled linens
  • Disrespect
  • Uncaring treatment

Diligent Case Work

At Adams Law Firm, P.C., we understand that abuse can be difficult to pursue, as residents may be too scared to report it or too ill to notice it. Our dedicated lawyers conduct thorough background work to help determine and prove physical, mental and emotional abuse.

We interview witnesses, including residents, family members and employees. We also consult with investigators and other experts, such as psychologists, psychiatrists and physicians. Their expert testimony can help illustrate the serious consequences of their treatment and prove liability. Additionally, we dig into the nursing home's background to uncover other instances of abuse and showcase a pattern of neglect.
