Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Abuse and neglect in nursing homes and assisted living facilities is a growing problem throughout Florida and the United States. It can be extremely upsetting when loved ones are injured by those responsible for their care.
Nursing home abuse can be physical abuse or neglect, such as failure to provide proper nutrition or medical care, and can result in bed sores, fractures, falls, dehydration, infections and other problems.
A disturbing trend has developed in nursing home cases. Nursing homes hide assets in order to avoid financial responsibility. Nursing homes also often do everything they can to slow down the litigation process and avoid providing the information they are required to disclose. Any lawsuit against a nursing home must be filed within a short time frame, so do not delay contacting an attorney if you have a claim.
Lawsuits against nursing homes and assisted living facilities are governed by complicated laws and require experienced attorneys who are willing to go the distance and hold all responsible parties financially accountable. At Douglas R. Beam, P.A., we are experienced in nursing home litigation and can help you and your family during this difficult time.
