Seminole County Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys
The nursing home population is growing, and facilities are short on resources. Many staff members are overworked and undertrained, which can translate to problems for residents. Nursing homes have a duty to abide by all health and safety standards and ensure that residents receive proper care without the threat of harm. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse is a growing problem in Florida and across the U.S.
If you believe your loved one suffered harm due to nursing home abuse, you need the right legal team in your corner. Our compassionate attorneys fight for the rights and well-being of seniors, and we take on nursing home abuse cases. Reach out today to learn more.
Nursing home abuse can take many forms, and we help clients who suffered the following and more:
- Neglect – When a resident does not receive proper medical care, nutrition, shelter, or care, they can suffer avoidable harm.
- Physical abuse – Some nursing home staff members, residents, or visitors might use physical violence against seniors, causing a wide range of serious injuries.
- Sexual abuse – Workers or others in the facility might sexually assault a nursing home resident, which can cause physical injuries, trauma, and STDs.
- Emotional abuse – Not all harmful conduct leaves physical scars, and emotional abuse of nursing home residents can cause mental decline and trauma.
You should trust a nursing home to care for your loved one, but always be on the lookout for signs of possible abuse. If you have any suspicions, we are ready to help address the situation.
