Jacksonville Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

Your Path to Healing for Your Loved One Starts Here.

When the time comes, it is difficult to place a loved one in a nursing home, but the process is especially hard to deal with if you suspect nursing home abuse. It is very upsetting when your loved one is mistreated when you expected that you could trust the facility that you chose for them. When these awful things happen, you may be able to pursue a claim.

The Two Most Important Things to Know About Nursing Home Abuse and/or Neglect Cases. 

  1. Gather Evidence: Now that you know the signs of this neglect, the first step is to get evidence of it. That would include collecting medical records, taking photos of obvious injuries, and talking to the caregivers to get more information. When you have this information and know that there is a chance they are being abused, your next step is to contact our experienced team of lawyers to investigate the case thoroughly. We will be able to collect evidence and protect it from disappearing as well as uncover more evidence that you may not have been aware of. We will make sure your case is strong and that you are going to be ready to bring it to civil court.
  2. Call an Attorney: The statute of limitations is the amount of time in which you have to bring your claim to receive compensation for injuries and damages. You should know that in rare circumstances, there may be extensions available to you to prolong your statute of limitations. In most instances, you will have two years from the day you discover or should have discovered the nursing home abuse to bring your claim. If you are late bringing your claim, there is unfortunately nothing we can do to help you. Once you suspect abuse, you should not wait to call a lawyer because these cases take time.

How Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect Compensation Works.

Often, the liable party will be able to offer you a fast settlement offer to victims of nursing home abuse to try to get the case over quickly and with minimal impact to them financially. We urge you to consult with a lawyer before deciding to take any settlement offer. As your team of Jacksonville nursing home abuse lawyers, there are several things that we would be able to recover for you in terms of your damages and injuries when we pursue compensation from the facility your loved one was in.

  • Physical therapy
  • Medical treatment
  • Pain and suffering
  • Change in living arrangements
  • Punitive damages

Choosing a Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect Lawyer

You can report nursing home abuse in the state of Florida by contacting the Health Care Administration (HCA). They will likely take your statement and open an investigation. Before reporting nursing home abuse, we would advise you to call your lawyer first to ensure you are collecting all the sufficient evidence. In this video, Tom explains more about what to look for when selecting a nursing home abuse or neglect lawyer.
