Bronx Assisted Living Abuse Attorney

Has a Loved One Fallen Prey to Assisted Living Abuse?

People who are unable to live entirely on their own such as some elderly individuals and those with bipolar disorder, Down syndrome or other permanent disabilities live in assisted living centers or group homes. While similar to nursing homes in several ways, these facilities can also be drastically different. In these facilities, residents are thought to be more independent and capable of caring for themselves, so many assisted living facilities do not provide round-the-clock supervision or skilled nursing care.

But these assisted living centers are still required to provide certain levels of care and supervision. When these levels are not met and inadequate supervision or care is given, injuries can occur. That's where we come in.

At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., our personal injury attorneys help victims who are harmed as a result of group home abuse or assisted living negligence in the Bronx and Brooklyn and throughout New York. We have been representing injured New Yorkers for more than 40 years and we have a proven record of successful case results for victims of negligence and abuse. We put that knowledge and experience to work for you. To learn more, contact us online via e-mail or call 212-750-1200. We fight, you win.

Abuse at Assisted Living Facilities

Injuries at assisted living facilities often occur in similar ways that injuries at nursing homes occur. Assisted living injuries can occur from abuse or neglect. In cases of abuse, residents could be victims of physical abuse, sexual abuse or financial abuse. Signs of abuse can include:

  • Bruises, lacerations or marks from restraints
  • Open wounds, cuts or other unexplained bleeding
  • Broken bones or dislocated muscles
  • A loved one's report of being hit, slapped, mistreated or sexually assaulted
  • A sudden change in your loved one's behavior

Negligence at Assisted Living Centers

Injuries from negligence are slightly different, as they are not intentionally inflicted but may result simply because a care provider was not properly monitoring residents or the facility was inadequately staffed. Signs of neglect often include:
