Davie Assisted Living Negligence
Under Florida law, residents of assisted living facilities must be provided with a safe and reasonable living environment and must be treated with respect and dignity.

When it does, families often feel helpless and don't know where to turn.

There are many injuries that can result from assisted living negligence:
- Brain injuries
- Slip and fall accidents
- Spinal cord injuries
- Hip fractures
- Soft tissue injuries
- Bed sores
Unfortunately, those who are in assisted living facilities often have illnesses or conditions which can be complicated by these types of injuries. The residents may be already vulnerable and these types of injuries can quickly become complicated, especially if negligence prevents them from getting timely and quality medical advice and help. In some cases, residents in assisted living facilities are so neglected that fractures and other injuries go untreated, allowing serious complications to occur.
If you suspect that abuse or neglect is taking place, it is important to act quickly, before the situation gets worse and before your loved one's life is in danger. You can always reach a personal injury attorney to review the details of your case and to get legal advice.Getting Help for Assisted Living Negligence And Nursing Home Abuse Cases In Davie
Unfortunately, it can be difficult and frustrating for friends and family of residents who have been affected by assisted living negligence and abuse to get assistance. In many cases, the owners of an assisted living facility may simply deny that abuse or neglect is taking place. They may refuse to take phone calls and may refuse to allow residents to be evaluated by an independent doctor. In many cases, family and friends run up against one brick wall after another as they try to help. Law enforcement may also be limited in how much they are able to assist. The government bodies tasked with overseeing assisted living facilities in Florida are often overwhelmed with requests and may not be able to respond quickly to cases of negligence and abuse. Many families find that filing a legal claim is the fastest way to secure compensation for their loved ones and to make changes to a facility.
