We Fight For The Victims Of Nursing Home Abuse

Helping a loved one move into a nursing home is a difficult choice for many families. However, families make that choice because they know that is what is best. Unfortunately, some nursing homes do not take their obligations to provide appropriate care seriously, knowing that many residents are not able to effectively speak up for themselves.

When you suspect a loved one is being neglected or abused by nursing home staff, you should remove your loved one from their current housing to ensure their safety. The next step is to contact our office, La'Rae H. Hendrix P.A., to discuss your loved one's legal rights. We are experienced personal injury lawyers who know how to fight.

We Can Help You Take Civil And Criminal Actions

In the state of Florida, both civil and criminal laws protect elders against abuse. No matter what form the abuse comes in, there are laws that are in place to prevent and protect your loved ones from abuse, and we will help you take advantage of all of these laws.

Some common forms of nursing home abuse or neglect include:

  • Physical abuse or sexual abuse
  • Theft of money and/or personal items
  • Withholding of food
  • Withholding of medication, administering the wrong medication or administering the wrong dosage
  • Allowing sepsis or bedsores to occur
  • Failure to maintain a clean and sanitary facility

Many times, relatives will be scared to speak up for fear of punishment. This is why it is important to note if your loved one seems unusually depressed or withdrawn. This could also indicate something has happened. We will tell your loved one's story and fight to hold the nursing home accountable for its negligence.
