West Palm Beach Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
The decision to move an aging family member to a nursing home or other assisted living facility can be one of the most difficult decisions that a family makes, and it is usually done with the assumption that their loved one will be provided with the dedicated care and attention that they need and deserve. Sadly, reports of abuse, neglect, and medical malpractice in these types of facilities are all too common, exposing vulnerable individuals to deplorable conditions that can result in serious injuries, illnesses, emotional trauma, and even death.
At Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck, P.A., our West Palm Beach nursing home abuse lawyers realize firsthand how much of a problem this is in Florida and across the United States. The state of Florida alone has more than 250,000 individuals living in assisted living facilities, and that number is only likely to grow as medical advances expand lifespans. As inexcusable as this type of mistreatment is, it’s important to know that victims and their families are not without legal options for taking action. By filing a lawsuit against the responsible nursing home worker or facility, you can protect your loved one and other residents from suffering further harm and send an important message to this industry that abuse and neglect will not go overlooked and unpunished.
