Thorough, Compassionate Service For Nursing Home Neglect Victims
The home you choose for your parents or elders has a serious responsibility to protect their health and well-being at all costs. Even when the caretakers are not acting maliciously, neglectful practices can still result in your loved ones suffering under their care. When this happens, you have the right to pursue a claim to send caretakers a message that this behavior is not acceptable.
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. These individuals deserve high-quality legal representation from an experienced Southington medical malpractice attorney from our firm.
Why Hire A Medical Malpractice Attorney
The caregiver at fault might try to shift or deny responsibility for injuries – and that might work if you do not retain an experienced and accomplished Southington nursing home negligence 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. We encourage you to tell us your loved one’s story during a consultation so that we can assess the situation.

How We Secure Maximum Compensation

Our team independently investigates each case we handle – we know what evidence to look for and where to find it.
