Fort Lauderdale Assisted Living Negligence

Unfortunately, assisted living negligence is a common concern for families who have had to place a loved one in care. Studies have shown time and again that some facilities are negligent in providing a high standard of care. Some even provide unsafe conditions that can result in serious or even fatal injuries.

If a loved one has been injured due to negligence or abuse in a caregiving setting, contact Flaxman Law Group at 866-352-9626 to arrange a free consultation to review your options. Elder abuse in Fort Lauderdale as well as assisted living negligence is completely unacceptable, but Florida law does have remedies that can help you and your family place your loved one in a safer setting.

What Can You Do If You Suspect Assisted Living Negligence in Fort Lauderdale or Your Community?

It can be devastating for families to suspect that a loved one is being abused in a nursing home or assisted living facility. If you suspect assisted living or nursing home abuse or neglect, it is important to act quickly. Gather as much evidence as you can from the loved one and from your own visits and consult with a personal injury attorney in Fort Lauderdale or your community to find out whether you have a legal claim against the facility. If you suspect that a loved one is of immediate danger, you can contact authorities in your area to remove the loved one from care. Authorities can investigate the conditions in the home if they are dangerous.

Making Permanent Changes In The Assisted Living Industry

it can be very upsetting for families to realize that a loved one has been abused or neglected in a care setting. After all, there are strict Florida laws that are meant to protect residents of assisted living facilities and other facilities. In addition, there are government agencies tasked with overseeing these facilities to ensure that abuse and neglect have no place. Unfortunately, these fail-safes are not foolproof. Government agencies are limited by budgets and by laws as to what they can do. There are many reports of violations and government agencies claim that they simply cannot look into every one. In addition, the owners of assisted living facilities are sometimes powerful corporations who can negotiate with government agencies, law enforcement, and others since they are defended by powerful teams of attorneys.
