NURSING HOME ABUSE AND NEGLECT IS MORE COMMON THAN YOU MIGHT THINK
Elderly residents of nursing homes or assisted living facilities (and their families) are placing a great deal of trust in the caregivers there. Unfortunately, neglect and abuse are far too common at nursing home facilities throughout Florida. While many elder care facilities are run conscientiously, there are an alarming number of instances of nursing home abuse and accidents every year. About 25% of elderly adults report abuse – 70% of them women – and for every case that is reported, five more abuse issues occur that go unreported. Nearly one-fourth of elder abuse cases occur in nursing homes or other residential care facilities.
If you live in an elder care facility, or a loved one is a Deerfield Beach, nursing home resident – and there is abuse or evidence of abuse – you have legal rights to both have the abusive treatment stopped and to obtain financial compensation for the pain and suffering caused by the abuse.
Nursing home abuse attorneys are experienced in legal correspondence with facility administrators and the governmental departments – such as the Department of Health and the Attorney General’s office – which you need to contact in these cases. When you hire a nursing home abuse lawyer from Madalon Law, we will ensure that a thorough investigation into your allegations is performed and that the rights of the elder resident are protected.
Success in prosecuting nursing home abuse cases – or cases of injury accidents in Deerfield Beach elder care facilities – requires evidence of fault, identification of damages, an investigation into all complaints, and effective argument of the facts in settlement meetings or in court. Our legal team will work to prove abuse or fault, and maximize the compensatory damages you can get for the pain and suffering of the senior resident. Excellent representation can make all the difference in the outcome of a nursing home abuse case.
