Miami Beach Assisted Living Negligence

Under Florida Statute §434, assisted living facilities are defined as residential organizations that provide meals, personal services, and residences around the clock for adults who are not the family of the administrator or owner of the facility. As the definition suggests, assisted living facilities vary widely. Some include mental health or medical services while others provide recreation, housekeeping, and transportation to residents.

In all cases, Florida laws state that assisted living facilities are expected to provide a high standard of care and responsibility to ensure that residents stay safe and have a good quality of life. If a loved one has been placed in a facility where you believe negligence has caused serious injuries, you can always reach Flaxman Law Group to review your case in a free consultation with a personal injury attorney in Miami Beach or your community. You may have legal options that can help you help your loved one and your family.

Do I Have A Chance Of Getting Compensation In My Case Of Assisted Living Facility Abuse Or Neglect?

One of the most frustrating things about assisted living abuse and neglect is that in many cases the victims are extremely vulnerable. Victims may be elderly persons who have limited income and who are no longer working. Sometimes, when elder abuse in Miami Beach occurs the elderly may not be able to claim lost income or high medical bills, the way they might if they were younger and involved in a car accident. In addition, assisted living facilities may claim that an injury or illness was caused not by negligence but simply by a pre-existing condition or by old age.

What Can Be Done About Assisted Living and Nursing Home Negligence in Miami Beach?

It can be extremely frustrating and upsetting for families to be told that there is nothing that can be done. The truth is, however, that in some of these cases quite a bit can be done. In some cases, families can launch a personal injury or other legal claim against the facility in order to recover for any costs of care, any medical costs that have been incurred as a result of the injury, costs for pain and suffering, and other damages. To review how much your case may be worth, you may wish to consult with a personal injury attorney who can review your legal options with you.
