nursing home abuse

As the population ages, the demand for nursing home care increases. Families trust these facilities to provide compassionate and competent care for their elderly loved ones. However, instances of negligence and injuries within nursing homes can shatter that trust. In such cases, it's crucial to understand the legal recourse available, including the statute of limitations in New York. Basch & Keegan, your trusted personal injury law firm, is here to shed light on this important matter.

The Importance of Awareness

Nursing home injuries and negligence can have devastating effects on residents and their families. From falls to medication errors, the spectrum of potential harm is wide. Often, these incidents result from understaffing, inadequate training, or neglectful behavior. Awareness of rights and legal options is paramount.

Navigating the Three Year Statute of Limitations

In New York, the statute of limitations for nursing home injuries is three years from the date of the incident. This means that individuals have a three-year window to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for damages. However, we recommend acting as soon as possible if you believe a loved one has a nursing home neglect case. Navigating this three-year timeframe can be complex, especially when gathering evidence and building a case against a nursing home facility. Basch & Keegan specializes in personal injury law and can help you navigate this process efficiently and effectively.
