Representing Those Injured by Home Health Care Workers in New York
Home health care workers have a great deal of responsibility resting on their shoulders. Disabled people and their families depend on them to care for and protect disabled and seriously disabled loved ones in the home. Without home health workers, the alternative is to turn to nursing homes for required care.
Unfortunately, not all home health workers live up to their responsibilities. While most are competent professionals, some health care workers act negligently and even recklessly. In doing so, they put the people they care for at risk of serious personal injury and even wrongful death.
At the Manhattan law offices of Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., we represent people throughout the New York City metropolitan area who have been injured by the actions of a home health or hospice worker. We also represent the surviving families of people who have died while in these professionals' care as the result of negligence.

Was Your Loved One Injured by a Health Care Worker?
Our clients are people who have sustained serious and often catastrophic personal injury:
- Fractures or broken bones
- Head injury and brain injury
- Medication errors
- Untreated infection
- Bedsores (decubitus ulcers)
Often, these injuries occur because home health workers are not properly trained or supervised. Some of them are self-employed or employed by small, privately owned "mom and pop" companies that are poorly equipped for the full responsibility of caring for the sick and disabled. Many large companies fail to hire, train and monitor their employees properly.
Home health workers are often underpaid for the amount and type of work they are required to do. Many are new immigrants with limited experience, so they miss critical instructions regarding medications and care. This leads to errors, general negligence and even abuse due to frustration.
At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, we hold home health workers and their employers accountable for the harm caused. By taking forceful legal action in New York state courts, we send a clear message that harm to the elderly and disabled absolutely will not be tolerated, under any circumstances. Most legitimate providers are insured, so an adequate source for payment of claims is available.
