We Represent Victims of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect.

As one of the Hudson Valley’s most respected and diverse personal injury law firms, we are proud of our reputation as lawyers dedicated to fighting for the injured throughout the Ulster, Dutchess, Sullivan, Rockland and Orange County NY area.

Placing loved ones in a nursing home or assisted living facility where their medical needs can best be met can be a difficult decision. You invest substantial time and research making sure they are in the best possible place. Significant sums of money are spent on their care. All the while you are trusting that they will be given the same standard of care that you would give. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Nursing home abuse and neglect is becoming more frequent. If your loved one is a victim, we can help. The law office of Ostrer & Associates has the experience and resources to help with filing lawsuits on behalf of residents and families seeking damages caused by the abusive or negligent actions of nursing homes and their staff.

Pursuing Compensation for Damages and Preventing Future Victims

Our firm takes a comprehensive approach. We pursue compensation for damages you and your loved ones endured and take steps to prevent similar abuse and neglect from happening in the future to other facility residents. Facilities often try to conceal their negligence from family members. If caught, they typically displace blame on improperly trained or insufficient staff. There is no excuse. Our experienced lawyers work with medical and investigative experts to bring the abuse and neglect to light and fight to make nursing homes and assisted living facilities compensate for the damage they have done.

Examples of the Type of Abuse and Neglect Cases We Pursue Include:

  • Intimidation Through Yelling and Threats
  • Terrorization
  • Mockery
  • Neglect
  • Unsanitary Living Conditions
  • Non-Administration or Improper Administration of Medication
