Hallandale Beach Physical Neglect

A nursing home or assisted living facility should administer compassionate and professional care. If a loved one has been injured because of a care home’s inability to provide a high standard of care, you may be entitled to justice, including compensation. However, launching a claim against a nursing home and their powerful insurance company can be intimidating. In addition, there are statutes of limitations which affect how long you have in order to file a claim.

As soon as you suspect that neglect or abuse has led to an injury for loved one, you should contact a personal injury attorney in Hallandale Beach or your community. The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group care about the well-being of your family.

Physical Neglect in Hallandale Beach and Florida Often Leads to Serious Injury

Physical neglect can involve failing to provide the basics of life for a patient or someone in care. This form of abuse can lead to serious injuries and complications, especially since the victims are often already vulnerable. Physical neglect can lead to:

Who Is Liable For Physical Neglect?

The person or persons who are responsible for care in a nursing home, daycare, camp, or other environment where physical neglect has occurred are usually the ones held accountable if this form of abuse occurs. However, there may be a few liable parties if physical neglect occurs. For example, staff at an assisted living facility or nursing home may be held liable. The owners or operators of a care facility may also be held liable. To find all liable parties and to pursue them through legal claims, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney who can provide legal advice as well as guidance through the legal process.
