Nursing Home Abuse FAQ
Here are some of the most common questions we get with respect to filing a nursing home abuse claim. However, there is no substitute for personal legal counsel. Scroll to the bottom of the page to learn more about how you can contact a personal injury attorney from The Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo.
What are my loved one’s rights in a nursing home?
Federal and state regulations exist to keep your loved ones safe in a nursing home. At a minimum, the elderly have the right to expect a safe and dignified standard of care. When the very people charged with keeping them safe break with this standard of care, an attorney can help you and your loved one file a civil claim. Additionally, a criminal investigation could be launched independently of any civil action.
What are some examples of nursing home abuse?
Some common forms of nursing home abuse include physical abuse, emotional neglect, use of unreasonable restraints, lack of adequate medical care, exposure to filthy accommodations, food or sanitary deprivation, misuse of medications, sexual assault and battery, and financial abuse.
What should I do if I suspect my loved one is being abused?
Nursing home abuse and neglect of any kind is a sadly common experience, both in Florida and around the country. If you suspect that your loved one has suffered abuse, you can contact a nursing home abuse lawyer for help recovering a personal injury settlement for the various economic and non-economic damages that your loved one has suffered.
