Helping Victims of Hospital and Nursing Home Negligence

Posted by Scott M. Peterson | Apr 24, 2014 | 0 Comments

We trust the staff members at hospitals and nursing homes in New York to care for our health, but sometimes doctors, nurses, and nursing home staff members can make mistakes that lead to injuries. If you or a loved one is a victim of medical negligence, we invite you to watch this video. While most employees at hospitals and nursing homes are skilled workers, they can still make serious mistakes. Sometimes, abuse, neglect, poor planning, or medical mistakes can lead to serious medical problems or death.

Whether you or someone you love has been injured in a nursing home , suffered burns or disfigurement in a hospital, or is a victim of hospital or facility negligence, you need answers and you deserve them. However, getting answers on your own may be hard, which is why you should have an attorney on your side who is experienced in hospital negligence cases.

At D'Orazio Peterson, our lawyers know how important it is to quickly obtain a certified copy of your medical records and know how critical a thorough investigation is to your case. If you live in or near Albany County, please contact our law office for answers to your questions in a free consultation at 888-706-9765 or reach us online at
