Miami Lakes Medical Neglect

Many caregivers and nursing homes provide a high standard of care for their patients and charges. However, in some cases nursing home abuse and neglect in Miami Lakes and other Florida caregiving situations can occur. When medical neglect happens in these situations, vulnerable patients may not get medical treatment in time to prevent serious complications, injury, or even fatalities.

Has someone you care for been affected by medical neglect? Under Florida law, you may have a legal claim that allows you to seek compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages. To get details and to find out whether you qualify for compensation, contact Flaxman Law Group at 866-352-9626 to review your legal options and your rights with a member of our full-service law firm.

Medical Neglect in Miami Lakes and Florida can Affect Every Area of a Person's Life

A case of medical neglect can worsen an existing condition or can cause injury or serious complications. In addition, medical neglect can affect virtually every area of a person's life, including:

  • Their physical condition. A person who has been subject to medical neglect may be susceptible to infections, complications, and other injuries. If they already have a serious condition, medical neglect can prove life-threatening.
  • Their emotional state. Someone who has been medically neglected may feel abandoned, isolated, and alone. They may also lose hope or faith in those around them, making it difficult for them to reach out for help.
  • Their finances. In many cases, medical neglect is financially disastrous. The serious complications that can occur from medical neglect can lead to hospitalization, long-term medical care, and very expensive medical bills.
