New York nursing home abuse and nursing home neglect law firm Brown Chiari LLP has filed a class action lawsuit against Legacy Health Care, the operator of numerous elderly care facilities. The lawsuit cites neglect and endangerment to the welfare of residents.
Among the elderly care facilities operated by Legacy Health Care are Ridge View Manor LLC, Williamsville Suburban LLC, Williamsville View Manor Nursing Home, and Sheridan Manor.
“Brown Chiari filed the class action lawsuit against the nursing home chain on behalf of plaintiffs due to alleged deprivation of rights and benefits to which residents were legally entitled,” said Mike Scinta of Brown Chiari. “Among the causes of action brought in this lawsuit, the named defendants are accused of failing to ensure a dignified existence for residents, inadequate staffing, and quality of care issues.”
Legacy Health Care is also accused of fraud, breach of contract and negligence. The complaint states that Legacy Health Care failed to staff facilities with adequate and qualified personnel to care for residents, compromising dignity of residents and quality of care.
