Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers in Buffalo, NY

Entrusting a loved one to the care of a nursing home is often a very difficult decision. When a care provider at a nursing home causes harm or injury to a resident, it can be an extremely upsetting event for both the resident and the resident’s family. Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria's nursing home neglect attorneys, based in Buffalo, NY, understand that providing a safe environment for residents is the moral and legal obligation of a nursing home. Any abuse of that responsibility is a serious injustice.

Working hard for you and your loved ones

Due to the complexities of regulatory laws governing nursing homes and the fact that the victims may not be able to speak for themselves, clients need a highly effective and skilled legal team. Lipsitz Green is dedicated to fighting these challenging, important cases. The firm’s highly qualified attorneys possess the depth of knowledge and years of experience needed to succeed in these complex and emotionally charged situations. 

Types of nursing home mistreatment that our attorneys are well equipped to fight include physical, emotional, and sexual abuse; malnutrition and dehydration; neglect; unsanitary conditions; medication error; and wrongful death, among numerous other issues. The client does not have to pay a fee unless the firm wins the case.
