Since joining the firm in 2007, Ben Bartolotta has represented victims of elder abuse and neglect and medical malpractice in cases involving catastrophic injury and wrongful death.
A Brooklyn native, Ben is a passionate and tenacious advocate for victims of nursing home abuse and neglect, victims of negligence and medical malpractice, and their families. Ben entered the practice of law because he wanted to help people, and he feels privileged to represent those whose lives have been forever changed by catastrophic injury or wrongful death. For Ben, “There is no greater satisfaction than working hard to obtain a victory for my clients and giving them a sense of justice and closure.”
At the start of any case Ben learns as much as he can about the facts and circumstances that caused his client’s injuries. Whether that’s a complex medical procedure, a pressure ulcer that developed in a bed-ridden patient, or a traumatic brain injury that resulted from a fall, Ben works hard to understand the medicine and uses his keen and insightful understanding of the law to seek justice for his clients.
Ben believes that by representing people who have been injured and the families of people who have been killed as a result of someone else’s negligence, he not only seeks justice for his clients, but works to rectify unsafe and inadequate conditions in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and in hospitals.
