Fighting Against Nursing Home Negligence
It is a very difficult to put a parent or other loved one in a nursing home. When choosing a facility for them, we do everything we can to find one that will give them necessary care while still treating them with the dignity and respect they deserve. Sadly, there are frequent reports of injuries to nursing home residents due to negligence, abuse or purposeful actions.
Florida law holds nursing homes to a high standard of care for their residents. If you or your loved one has been injured due to the negligence or actions of anyone at the nursing home (staff, residents and management alike), you have the right to seek damages. An experienced lawyer can help you navigate this complicated process. At the Pensacola, Florida, David Mann & Associates, I have years of experience holding nursing homes accountable for the harm they cause.
The Experience You Need
I have been practicing law in the Panhandle region of Florida for over 40 years. I know the law, I know the courts and I know the rights of nursing home residents. I will fight aggressively to see that the nursing home facility, its staff, its parent company and any other responsible parties are held fully accountable for the injuries or abuse you or a loved one have suffered.
When you hire me as your attorney, I will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the injury or illness, including investigating the facility itself. Are there past complaints from other residents? Is there a high turnover of staff? Are staff members properly trained? What sort of policies are in place to prevent harm to residents? How is the company structured - is an LLC or shell company protecting the nursing facility from exposure? After asking these tough questions, I will build the most powerful case possible and seek maximum compensation available for your case. Depending on the nature of the injury, I will also look at the possibility of a defective product or equipment malfunction being responsible; this could lead to a third party liability claim.
I have handled all types of nursing home negligence cases, including:
- Bedsores, also known as decubitus ulcers or pressure sores
- Slip and fall injuries
- Physical or emotional patient abuse by staff members
- Negligent care
- Medication errors, including wrong dosage and improper administration
- Wandering away
- Malnourishment or dehydration
- Attacks by other residents
