Florida Nursing Home Accident Attorneys
Protecting the rights of seniors to live in healthy, safe conditions
Nursing homes that claim to be providers of care can transform into centers of fear when the staff abuses its residents. The mistreatment of seniors is not only ethically wrong, it is against the law. Our Florida nursing home lawyers at Viles & Beckman, LLC fight for victims of abuse. With our more than 40 years of combined experience we seek justice in cases of nursing home abuse involving:
- Violent and rough physical contact
- Physical assault
- Sexual assault and rape
- Inadequate medical treatment
- Neglect of residents’ basic needs
- Neglect of residents’ personal hygiene
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Untreated infections
- Bed sores and skin lesions
- Emotional abuse
- Slip and fall accidents
- Financial exploitation
Florida elder abuse laws are clear. We expect nursing homes to abide by these laws and to be punished if they fail to adhere to their well-defined duties of care.
Decisive action to combat Florida nursing home neglect and abuse
Nursing homes that disregard the rights of one patient are likely abusing others as well, often showing a pattern of harm. We expose negligent nursing homes as the horrible places they are. Our first priority is ensuring that your loved one is transferred to a safe place and provided with appropriate care. We then aggressively pursue the maximum compensation for physical, emotional and financial injuries resulting from neglect and abuse. By assisting you with your case, we also help other residents who may be suffering ill-treatment at the hands of the negligent institution.
