We are a preeminent New York law firm with a track record of proven results for over 50 years.
We investigated a wrongful death case against a group home
Our client was a profoundly disabled adult resident of a group home. Her family entrusted her into the organization’s care with an expectation that she would have a safe residence and appropriate support. Her dietary, personal hygiene and health needs were neglected, despite that the group home represented that it provided fantastic care and medical support. The neglect progressed to such an extent that our client required emergency hospitalization which resulted in a diagnosed obstructed bowel. Due to the delays occasioned by the organization’s neglect our client died at the hospital.
Our personal injury and wrongful death law practice undertook an investigation that revealed active efforts to destroy evidence, alter records and cover up the truth. We sued the group home. We prevailed and recovered a very substantial sum of money for the wrongful death and conscious pain and suffering endured.
