Fort Lauderdale Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Have you suffered nursing home abuse or negligence?

Many elderly residents in the state of Florida live in nursing homes. Unfortunately, instances of nursing home abuse have increased dramatically in the state, as they have elsewhere in the U.S. Approximately 30% of all nursing homes have been cited for abuse or neglect of patients, and 50% of all individuals living in nursing homes have reported some form of abuse at the hands of their caretakers. There are many forms of abuse one can suffer while living in a nursing home, including:

  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • Overmedication, or receiving improper medication
  • Bed sores from lack of movement or lack of hygiene
  • Lack of supervision
  • Physical abuse
  • Unsanitary facilities or living spaces
  • Over-sedation
  • Sexual abuse
  • Abandonment

If you or a loved one has suffered some form of abuse in a nursing home, it is vital that you contact a Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. You or your family member may be entitled to compensation for damages for medical expenses as well as pain and suffering.
