Miami Beach Medical Neglect
Many assisted living facilities, doctors, hospitals, and other liable parties go out of their way to reduce their liability. If you have been injured as a result of medical neglect in a Miami Beach hospital or other medical care setting anywhere in Florida, the doctors may not be forthcoming with information that can help you build a strong case on your behalf. You may not even realize that neglect has contributed to your complications or injuries. In the case of assisted living or nursing home abuse and negligence that stems from medical neglect, staff may claim that an injury or complication was a natural outcome as a result of the patient’s or resident’s previous condition.
If you suspect medical neglect, do not hesitate to contact a personal injury attorney at Flaxman Law Group in order to find out what really happened. If neglect and negligence played a role, you may have a legal claim and pursuing a legal claim can ensure that others are protected from negligence. Pursuing a legal claim can also help you secure financial resources that can help you help your family on the road to recovery.

In many cases, medical neglect is not obvious until serious complications arise. Unlike physical abuse, which can leave bruises, fractures, and other injuries, medical neglect can be silent at first. Nevertheless, family and friends may notice medical neglect in a nursing home or assisted living facility by noticing:
- Unexplained symptoms
- A patient who seems unusually fatigued or unresponsive
- A patient or resident who misses doctors’ or dentist appointments
- A resident or patient who complains about lack of access to medical care
If you suspect that something is wrong when visiting a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility, ask questions immediately. You deserve to know whether your loved one is in danger and you deserve to be able to take action in order to get a loved one to safety.
If you cannot get answers from a nursing home or assisted living facility, contact the loved one's doctor or contact authorities if you believe that your loved one may be in immediate, serious danger. You can always contact a personal injury attorney as well in order to find out what can be done in your case. Sometimes, there are legal remedies that allow you to seek compensation in cases of medical neglect. Seeking compensation may be able to help you secure the financial resources needed to move your loved one to a safer care environment.Would You Like to Speak to a Personal Injury Attorney?
