Florida Nursing Home Negligence Attorneys
Advocates for quality care for elderly Fort Myers residents
Some nursing home facilities seek to lower their expenses by reducing staff and minimizing services they provide to their elderly residents. These cost-cutting actions can result in serious injuries or death of the individuals they are paid to help. Often loving family members remain entirely unaware of the neglect until a severe disease or injury occurs. Established in 1995, Viles & Beckman, LLC demands that nursing homes treat patients with a high level of care and pay for their careless actions.
Injuries caused by neglect
Nursing home residents require constant care and attention. The facilities are liable if they fail to provide seniors with basic medical, physical and emotional care. With more than 40 years of combined experience, our elder abuse lawyers are familiar with evidence of negligence. Common indications of neglect include:
- Bed sores
- Untreated cuts, fractures and soft-tissue injuries
- Progression of diabetes, cancer or other diseases
- Poor personal hygiene
- Soiled bedding and clothes
- Slip and fall accidents
- Depression or anxiety
- Withdrawal from social activities and hobbies
If your loved one shows signs of neglect, talk to an attorney who can help you investigate the injuries and take purposeful action for obtaining relief.
