Miami Assisted Living Negligence

The decision to put a loved one in an assisted living facility is a difficult one. Many families struggle with the decision, but ultimately choose to place a loved one in an assisted living facility or other care facility if a loved one can no longer take care of themselves and family cannot provide the support that a loved one needs. In most cases, families spend a lot of time researching, paying for, and trying to find the best facility possible for loved ones.

In cases where an assisted living facility fails to provide the standard of care that they promised and a loved one is injured or even killed as a result of negligence, it can be devastating for the entire family. If this has happened to you, you can always contact Flaxman Law Group to arrange for a free, no obligation consultation with one of our compassionate, professional personal injury attorneys or legal staff.

Types of Assisted Living Facility Negligence In Miami

There are many types of assisted living facility negligence:

  • Lack of proper supervision for dangerous activities
  • Lack of healthcare
  • Under-medication or over-medication
  • Over-sedation or illegal restraints
  • Lack of access to food and water
  • Sexual abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Lack of proper grooming
  • Denial of access to medical care for residents who are sick
  • Under-heating or overheating

In all these cases, the results can be devastating, especially for a resident who is elderly and already ill.

Negligence Leads To Serious Injuries

Assisted living facility negligence and abuse can lead to many injuries, including:

  • Amputation
  • Burns
  • Head Injuries
  • Fractures
  • Hip Fractures
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Infected Bedsores
  • Infestations Of Lice, Bedbugs, Or Other Pests

Unfortunately, those who are injured in this way are often the most vulnerable. The elderly and the ill who are in assisted living facilities often have little recourse to fight back. They need their families and friends fighting for them and preventing further abuse and neglect.

Speaking with a Personal Injury Attorney in Miami Can Be a First Step

Flaxman Law Group attorneys understand that assisted living negligence can be one of the most difficult things that a family may have to face. Families often place a loved one in an assisted living facility hoping that the facility will be able to offer them a better standard of care than the family can. Families often make sacrifices as well as a huge financial commitment in order to put loved ones in the best care and they expect and deserve that a facility will offer a high quality of care and a good standard of life for their loved one. These decisions are often very difficult and it is devastating to learn that an assisted living facility has broken a family's trust by creating an abusive or negligent environment that leads to serious injury. In this type of situation, it is common for families to feel guilty, upset, angry, and depressed about the outcome. It's also very confusing for families trying to figure out what has happened to cause an injury and how to go about helping a loved one who has suffered in this way.
