New York’s Top Bedsore Attorneys Fighting For Victims of Nursing Home Abuse

Dalli & Marino, LLP is New York’s premier elder abuse and personal injury law firm specializing in cases involving bedsores, or pressure ulcers, due to nursing home negligence and abuse. Our experienced New York bedsore lawyers have recovered millions of dollars for our clients in these cases in the five boroughs (Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Staten Island), Long Island and Westchester and Rockland Counties, since 1996.

Number of Bedsore Cases

Each year, an estimated 2.5 million people suffer from bedsore injuries, which can occur when a nursing home resident stays in one position for an extended period of time. If untreated, these injuries can become infected and create dangerous complications.

Bedsores are the most preventable injuries among the elderly. Yet their presence in a nursing home resident is a leading indicator of elder abuse, caused by under-staffing at these skilled nursing facilities. Inadequate staffing means not enough trained personnel are available to take proper care of all residents.

Bedsore Actions

If your loved one has suffered from bedsores or pressure ulcers in a nursing home, he or she may be entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering. Dalli & Marino’s team focuses on helping hundreds of families confront the failure of nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and hospitals to provide their patients with good care, consistent with New York State and Federal regulations. We also have many decades of experience in supporting the process of evidence gathering for bedsore-related cases, with a clear understanding of the rules, plus the possible role of electronic medical records/electronic health records (EMR/EHR) and expert witnesses.


Our firm has handled hundreds of cases involving elderly residents of nursing homes who suffer injuries such as bedsores, as well as falls, dehydration, medication errors and sexual abuse. As a result, we have gained particular expertise in navigating these highly sensitive matters resulting in numerous successful verdicts and settlements.


For example, Dalli & Marino, specifically partner, John Dalli, obtained a large jury verdict against a nursing home that failed to properly treat a resident’s bedsores over the course of several months. During the trial, we proved that the nursing home falsified medical records and the client was awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Do not let your loved one suffer bedsores without receiving compensation for their pain and suffering. Even if your loved one has passed away, a lawsuit can be brought on behalf of the estate to recover for the suffering that bedsores caused.
