New York Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

New York Nursing Home Abuse AttorneyThe city of New York is not only the most populous and diverse city in the nation, but it is also one of the most influential cities in the entire world. Almost one million of its residents happen to be over the age of 65 and trends show that its elderly population will only continue to grow in the near future. The New York nursing home abuse attorneys of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC are committed to ensuring that all seniors are treated with dignity and respect regardless of their history or way of life. We’ve compiled the following data to help you protect your elderly loved ones when needing to place them in nursing facilities.

New York Senior Demographics

Throughout the entire history of the United States, New York has had an expansive amount of influence on the county and across the globe. From 1785 until 1790, it was the nation’s capital and is now considered the capital of the financial industry throughout the world. Since it has been the historic gateway through which most legal immigrants migrated and continue to migrate into the country, it is also home to an incredibly diverse population.

Almost eight-hundred languages are spoken throughout the city— a testament to the melting pot it has become. This also means that immigrants make up a significant portion of the city’s senior population. Out of a total of nearly one million residents aged 65 or older, 463,000 are immigrants. These immigrants tend to only have half the income of natural born seniors and are twice as likely to be declined social security benefits.

Since nursing care is so grossly expensive, it is only right that those needing full time care be treated with respect and dignity. Many immigrant nursing care patients are supported by their children or other relatives, and they have the right to demand accountability when negligent care results in an injury or death.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
