An elderly man who was a patient in a nursing home in Brooklyn, New York filed a lawsuit against the nursing home for failing to properly treat and care for him. Due to the nursing home’s negligence, the man sustained serious bed sores also known as decubitis ulcers. He needed surgery to debride the bed sores. The New York medical malpractice lawyers at Frekhtman & Associates filed a lawsuit against the nursing home and settled the case while awaiting trial. The case was resolved for $325,000.00. New York’s Public Health Law 2801(d) allows a private cause of action against a Nursing Home or other health care facility for deprivation of a patient’s rights.
