Family of Disabled Man Abused at Group Home Still Fighting for Answers

Lubin & Meyer is representing a disabled man who was badly beaten resulting in his paralysis while living in a group home in Bedford. Although the Middlesex District Attorney's office has not yet filed criminal charges, a new investigation substantiates that abuse did occur, and a civil lawsuit is helping to bring new information to light.

As reported by FOX 25's Mike Beaudet,
"[A] newly-released Disabled Persons Protection Commission investigative report fuels the family’s suspicion by substantiating abuse occurred but still leaves unanswered the question of how [Paul Stanizzi] got his injuries. "
"In addition to detailing the injuries, the report substantiated abuse in so far as the sole group home worker on duty admitted that he found Stanizzi apparently paralyzed on the floor but moved him to his bed anyway, and then waited approximately 25 minutes before calling 911."
Lubin & Meyer attorney Benjamin Novotny interviewed for the story said:
“Some of the findings of the report are very, very concerning. The bruising all over the face, on the arms, the legs, the footprint on the back of the legs are probably most concerning piece of evidence that's come to light.”
