Nursing Home Negligence
Our law firm also handles claims of nursing home negligence and abuse. Unfortunately, many nursing homes in Florida put profit before patient care. Often nursing homes are not staffed appropriately for the number of residents they must care for and supervise. If you have a loved one that has not received appropriate care in a nursing home resulting in a fall, bed sore or other injury please let us investigate your potential claim. We will also analyze whether your loved one also may have a claim for medical malpractice if they were transferred from the nursing home to a hospital, or whether their attending physician at the nursing home provided the correct diagnosis and treatment for their condition.
All of the initial investigation is done at no charge to you, and we will only be reimbursed for our costs if we resolve your claim to your satisfaction either by settlement or trial. Further, our services are provided on a contingent fee basis, so there is no charge for attorney’s fees unless we resolve your claim to your satisfaction either by settlement or trial. You must act quickly if you think you may have a nursing home negligence and/or medical malpractice claim because Florida has a very short statute of limitations in which to bring these claims.
The law as to when the statute of limitations ends in a nursing home negligence and/or medical malpractice case is very complex. Even if you have been told by another law firm that the statute of limitations has expired or you do not have a claim please call us to get our opinion. Many times we have been able to bring successful claims for clients that have been told by other lawyers that they do not have a valid claim or that their claim has been barred by the statute of limitations.
