Nursing Home Abuse
Our firm has a passion for representing clients and their families in a variety of nursing home and assisted living abuse cases. Over the years that our firm has represented clients in these types of cases we have seen how greedy and careless many of these facilities are when caring for the elders in our community. In many cases, recovery from these forms of abuse is never possibly and no amount of money will be able to fully compensate you or family members for the abuse they suffered. However, our firm will work to compensate the individual and family as much as possible and to also send a message to the nursing homes that their greedy and careless conduct will not be tolerated. This will hopefully protect other residents of these facilities from suffering from the same abuse.
Our firm is currently representing many clients who have either personally or witnessed a family member being abused by a nursing home. The types of abuse case we are currently handling range from:
Physical and nutritional neglect
Pressure sores and bedsores that have resulted in death
Falls that have resulted in death
Failure to provide vaccinations and non-compliant infection control practices that have resulted in death
Our firm has investigated and represented our clients against many national nursing homes chains and also many smaller nursing homes including:
Benchmark Senior Living
If you or a loved one believe that you have been abused or neglected by a nursing home or assisted living facility here are the initial steps you must take immediately!
Contact the Department of Public Health their 24 hour complaint line is 800-462-5540 or 617-753-8150.
Depending on the severity of the abuse, health of the resident and availability of transferring the resident, try to move the resident to a hospital or another nursing home.
Request in writing a copy of your or your loved ones medical records from the nursing home. Many facilities will refuse or stall in providing you these records, however they are required to provide you with copies of the records pursuant to both federal and state regulations. If the facility fails to provide you with the records, write the facility and cite both the federal regulation 42 CFR Sec. 483.10(b)(2)(i) that requires the nursing home to produce on request of a resident the nursing home records within 24 hours and the state regulation 940 CMR 4.08 that requires the facility produce records with in two business days of the request.

Recent Client Testimonial
“Wayne and Jonathan constantly reassured us that the case had merit and to believe in the process; they continuously reminded us that, "this is a marathon, not a sprint".
They never wavered in their conviction and support.
They were available for questions and made sure we were prepared every step of the way. They were always flexible, professional and are genuinely good people.
We have a large family and 3 of us had to make sure we could meet at the same time on several occasions. Jonathan and Wayne offered to have meetings on Saturdays in their office so we would have plenty of time for preparations including mock depositions. We clearly did not appreciate how much preparation was involved and that included much more than just our depositions due to the challenges of the case. They guided us to request the necessary documents from the Department of Public Health to support the facts of our case and they also were able to locate former employees of the facility who spoke freely about the facility’s short comings.
We finally reached a settlement and that never would have happened if we did not have the Gray Legal Group fighting for us and with us.
If you are looking for hard working, supportive and kind lawyers, I highly recommend the legal team of Wayne and Jonathan Gray. You will receive honest, professional advise based on the merits of your case and thorough research of legal precedents.
I am very glad we had them on our side”.
