Thorough, Compassionate Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers

At Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, LLP, we hold nursing homes, assisted living facilities and home health care agencies accountable for neglect and abuse. When a patient is seriously injured or dies because of the neglectful or abusive practices of his or her caregivers, it is deplorable and devastating.

The caregiver might try to shift or deny responsibility for injuries, and that might work if you don't retain an experienced and accomplished personal injury lawyer to investigate the true cause(s) of injury or death and advocate for your right to recover compensation.

If you are a family member of or beneficiary to the estate of a nursing home abuse or neglect victim, you may be able to seek compensation on his or her behalf.

What Constitutes Nursing Home Neglect Or Abuse In Connecticut?

Our attorneys handle nursing home neglect and abuse claims throughout Hartford County and surrounding areas. We are based in Southington, but can come to you to discuss the specifics of your case. We prosecute cases involving:

  • Falls
  • Patients who wander off
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Bedsores (pressure ulcers)
  • Facility-borne infections
  • Sexual abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Medication errors
  • Wrongful death
  • Other injuries caused by poor staffing, supervision and training

How Do We Secure Maximum Compensation?

We will visit your loved one to discuss his or her injuries, and we will collaborate with elder care experts to examine injuries and establish the full and fair value of the claim. Our team independently investigates each case we handle. We know what evidence to look for and where to find it.

We will prepare your case for trial, but will negotiate aggressively for the maximum settlement you deserve in hopes of avoiding trial. If we cannot achieve a favorable settlement without going to court, however, we are prepared to fight for your best interests at any level of court.
