Miami Inadequate Supervision

Unfortunately, inadequate supervision in Miami and other Florida communities most often affects those who are most vulnerable. Those who are in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, for example, require more supervision due to their health conditions. Someone who is elderly and is in an assisted living facility or nursing home may need supervision in order to properly wash themselves, get dressed, and even eat a meal. Without this supervision, an elderly loved one may have a hard time getting adequate nutrition or may be subject to slip and fall accidents as well as other serious accidents that can result in significant injury.

If you or a loved one have been seriously injured because a business or facility failed to provide adequate supervision, you may have a legal claim against that organization and their insurance company. To find out whether you have a legal claim and options for pursuing compensation, contact Flaxman Law Group at 1-866-FLAXMAN (1-866-352-9626). The attorneys at our full service law firm would gladly meet with you to discuss your questions and concerns.

Why Does Inadequate Supervision Happen?

Daycare facilities, schools, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, construction sites, and other environments all require good supervision in order to stay safe. However, sometimes those in charge are negligent in providing a good level of safety. Inadequate supervision can occur for a number of reasons:

  • Undertraining of staff
  • Understaffing
  • High staff turnover
  • Distracted workers
  • Poor workplace policies at a construction site or workplace
  • Cost cutting in an assisted living facility or nursing home

In these situations, it is important to find all responsible parties in order to hold them accountable for their recklessness. Often, finding all liable parties requires a careful and thorough investigation. An experienced personal injury attorney in Miami or your Florida community will work with private investigators, expert witnesses, engineers, medical experts, and other professionals in order to find all possible liable parties and to build the strongest case against each party in order to secure the fairest compensation available.

Getting Legal Help After a Serious Injury

In order to secure compensation and financial resources, it is a good idea to speak with a personal injury attorney who can review your situation and can help you find any possible options for pursuing compensation in your case. Under Florida law, if an injury has been caused by recklessness or negligence, the plaintiff may be able to seek compensation from all liable parties in order to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and the many other expenses that a serious injury can incur.

There is no excuse for not offering adequate supervision that can ensure the safety of residents in a nursing home, assisted living facility, or in any other environment that requires adequate supervision.
