Miami Lakes Nursing Home Abuse
Miami Lakes is a planned community in South Florida's Miami-Dade County. Famous for its very low crime rates and its natural beauty, Miami Lakes was founded by Ernest "Cap" Graham in the 1930s. Today, it is still overseen by the Graham Companies, the family company established by the city's founder. Miami Lakes was designed with lakes, plenty of green spaces, and beautiful residential streets. Today, the city is considered a success story when it comes to planned developments.
In Miami Lakes, residents who are approaching their elder years may require additional medical or living assistance and many families make the difficult decision to place an elderly loved one in a nursing facility or assisted living facility. These facilities are supposed to be a safe and supportive environment that offer healthcare management as well as a home environment. These facilities are supposed to have a nursing care to assist residents 24 hours a day. Unfortunately, in some cases Miami Lakes nursing home abuse and neglect occurs due to negligence at these facilities, causing serious injuries, including Miami Lakes head injuries, broken bones, and even fatalities. When this occurs, it is important to consult a Miami Lakes personal injury attorney in order to protect your elderly loved one.
A Miami Lakes personal injury attorney can investigate possible instances of abuse, can remove your elderly loved one to a safe environment, and can pursue a legal claim against the assisted living facility. Pursuing a legal claim in a Miami Lakes elder abuse and neglect case is very important. It holds the assisted living facility responsible, and can help ensure that other residents are not abused or neglected in the same way. Pursuing a legal claim can also be important in securing compensation that can help you pay for an elderly loved one's treatment, medical care, and new care and housing costs. Working with a Miami Lakes personal injury attorney can ensure that the rights of your elderly loved one are protected and can ensure that you have the financial resources to help your elderly loved one as much as possible.
