Nursing Home Neglect Services

Many residents of Florida do not have the resources to properly address the needs of their older family members who require special medical care. Their only choice is to delegate that care to a skilled and qualified nursing facility. When that institution is chosen to assume the responsibility of caring for the one in need, a trust relationship is created by the facility, the patient, and the family caring for the patient.

Unfortunately, nursing home neglect exists. It is an apaling crime that has been silently abusing and taking advantage of our seniors. According to Masters in Health Care, over a quarter of all nursing homes have residents that have been subject to abuse, whether it’s by staff or other residents. These include malnutrition, physical abuse, psychological distress, exploitation, neglect, and sexual abuse.

The statistics reflecting incidents of abuse involving elderly residents in nursing homes and care facilities are staggering and disheartening. If you live in Florida and know someone that has been a victim of nursing home neglect or abuse, you should contact Pennekamp Law today to schedule a FREE consultation with one of our attorneys that specializes in getting you compensation for the injuries and losses you have incurred as a result of nursing home neglect.

 

Types Of Nursing Home Neglect Injuries

Nursing home care facilities owe their patients a promise of superior level of care. If that promise is breached, all consequential injuries would be a liability assignable to the nursing home facility. Unfortunately, many elderly residents of such homes are unable to communicate effectively due to physical or mental infirmities. Others may even fear retaliation from nursing home staff members if they report incidents of abuse or neglect.

Nursing home injuries are a problem. An injury can be classified as a nursing home neglect injury if the victim received the injury or incurred a loss as a result of the abuse they from their nursing center. Types of injuries caused by nursing home neglect include:

  • Burn Injuries - Burn injuries can be caused by exposure to the sun, chemicals, fires, severe heat, or even steam. Most severe burns will require medical attention. These injuries can range in severity from mild to life threatening.
  • Broken Bones - Long-term treatment of broken bones an include immobilization, which can include anything from a plaster cast to a splint or even surgical nails and wires. In some cases, surgery is needed to implant more permanent forms of immobilization.
  • Head Injuries - A head injury is any type of injury that affects a person's face, skull, or brain. Fatal head injuries can occur without the victim even knowing how badly they are injured. This occurs when the victim’s head is struck suddenly and suffers partial memory loss.
  • Impaired Vision - Injuries that cause impaired vision or blindness create lifetimes of struggle for victims. If you suffered an eye injury, you may have discovered that it alters your entire way of life, which is why you deserve the maximum compensation for your needs.
  • Loss Of A Limb - An amputation can be caused immediately from the occurrence of the accident, or it can be the result of the traumatic injury that requires a limb to be removed to help save the life of the victim from a fatal infection.

You Deserve Compensation

Many people do not realize that they can recover more than just the medical expenses to compensate for the injuries caused by nursing home neglect. There are additional costs such as extended care, therapy, and losses of income that can be paid for by the defendant’s insurance company when legal action is taken. If you have incurred an injury related to a nursing home neglect, some of the items you are entitled to receive compensation for can include:

  • Loss Of Employment
  • Time Missed From Work
  • Interest Losses
  • Medical Bills
  • Therapy Costs

The main objective of the insurance companies is to pay out the lowest possible payment to settle a claim, and make it nearly impossible to increase the settlement amount. Our goal is the exact opposite. We fight to get you the MOST amount of compensation you deserve for your injuries so you can live a painless and stress free life, for the rest of your life, despite the seriousness of your injuries.

Pennekamp Law will provide you with legal counsel to help you be compensated for your pain, suffering, and losses you have had to endure due to the nursing home neglect you experienced.
