Nursing Home Negligence
A large percentage of our population is dependent upon elder care. Frail and often uncommunicative, our elderly relatives can be the victims of neglect at the nursing homes and other long-term care facilities that are supposed to protect them. When the facilities are understaffed, inadequately maintained and lack essential qualifications our mothers, fathers and other relatives suffer. Bed sores, falls, unexpected fractures, changes in affect and social withdrawal are signs of problems. Unfortunately, there are over one million reports of elder abuse in nursing homes each year. Our firm advocates for individuals who have been victims of injuries in nursing home and long-term care facilities, whether due to negligence or intentional abuse. We believe in fighting for those who do not have a voice, thus giving them and their loved ones a platform for justice.

Every day people are injured by defective products. They are surprised to learn that almost any type of consumer product has the potential to cause injury. This can be due to defective design, defective manufacturing, marketing misinformation or the manufacturers failure to warn the consumer of the dangers associated with the product. Some products, such as power tools or recreational equipment pose obvious risks by the very nature of their function. Other products that seem relatively benign, however, may actually pose a greater risk. Fortunately, New York law protects people injured by consumer products. The legal issues associated with these types of claims can be complicated, so it’s crucial that you have an attorney who is familiar and experienced with the legal issues involved. If you think you have been injured by a defective product give us a call and we will be here to discuss it with you.
Defective Drugs and Medical Devices
Pharmaceuticals and medical devices are frequently at the center of personal injury lawsuits based on claims that the drug or device was defective or unreasonably dangerous. Even with a stringent approval process by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), manufacturers are still found liable for injuries caused by their products. Currently there are ongoing cases against the manufacturers of many drugs and medical devices. Below, you’ll find some examples of these cases.
Talc is a naturally occurring mineral that has been widely advertised by manufacturers for multiple uses – from general moisture control to baby diapering to feminine hygiene.

Intended to stop pulmonary embolisms, certain IVC filters have been linked to migration or device fracture which can lead to embolization or perforations, among other injuries.
