Suspect Nursing Home or Elder Abuse?
Call our Orlando Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
When a loved one can no longer live independently, you might consider placing him or her in a nursing home. You expect the facility to provide a decent standard of care for your relative, but this is unfortunately not always the case. According to a federal study by the Department of Human Services, 97 percent of nursing homes are understaffed, which can lead to serious illness, injury and wrongful death.
Each experienced Orlando elder abuse lawyer at our law firm has handled many cases in this area, including:
- We helped an elderly man who had more than 30 bedsores on his body. He even had bedsores on his ears. When we investigated, we discovered a video of the man lying in his own feces. We helped him recover a significant settlement to compensate for his abhorrent treatment. (The settlement terms prevent us from disclosing the amount)
- We represented a family who lost a loved one due to a fellow resident’s violent attacks. The assisted living facility claimed that no one knew about the resident’s violent tendencies. However, after we investigated, we discovered that the resident had a history that the facility tried to hide in order to keep him on the grounds instead of losing him to a psychiatric ward, which would have resulted in less revenue. We recovered a multi-million dollar award for the deceased’s family.
