Who Is Liable For Assisted Living Negligence?

Depending on the situation, there may be multiple liable parties involved in your case, including:

  • The owners of the building
  • Any state agency who knew of violations at the facility but failed to act
Act Quickly to Stop Abuse and Negligence

If you suspect assisted living negligence, it is important to act fast. In some cases, negligence can be life-threatening. For example, if residents are not properly cared for they may be involved in slip and fall accidents that result in hip fractures or other life-threatening ailments. If residents are being under-medicated or overmedicated, their lives may be at risk if their medical conditions are not managed correctly.

If you suspect that a loved one is immediate danger, it is important to call law enforcement right away. Even if you don't suspect that a loved one's life is in danger, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney quickly. A personal injury attorney can act in order to secure evidence and to help you understand what your options are for getting your loved ones to safety as quickly as possible.

It can be difficult in these cases for families to get justice and assistance for abused loved ones. In many cases, seeking claims to a civil court helps put financial pressure on assisted living facilities and pushes them to make changes. Filing a personal injury claim in Fort Lauderdale or your community sends a strong message. By pursuing the facility and their insurance company in court, you also provide a strong financial incentive for the assisted living facility to change their policies. Finally, pursuing a civil claim can also help you secure financial resources for your loved one, so that you can pay for medical care for their injuries as well as for future care in a better facility.
