Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
According to a studies published by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Florida had well more than 650 licensed nursing homes with a capacity for more than 80,000 residents as of 2009. While the fact that we have a very large senior population should shock no one, the quality of care provided and tolerated in some facilities should concern us all.
At McIntyre Thanasides Bringgold Elliott Grimaldi Guito & Matthews, P.A., our Tampa nursing home abuse lawyers take allegations of inadequate care and neglect very seriously and focus on cases with serious consequences for residents and their families. We are fully prepared to investigate and evaluate potential claims in west central Florida involving:
- Serious injury or wrongful death due to direct physical abuse of the elderly — often related to negligent hiring practices for nursing home personnel
- Inattentive care and lack of supervision resulting in preventable deaths, disease, injury from falls, bed sores (pressure sores or decubitus ulcers), infections and other conditions
- Malnutrition, dehydration, food poisoning and other severe consequences of a nursing home’s profit focus taking priority over patient care
Putting Florida Nursing Home Laws to Work for Victims and Families
Florida has some of the most detailed and extensive laws governing nursing home responsibilities and residents’ rights in the nation. We strive tenaciously to apply those laws to help family members obtain justice and fair compensation in cases of abuse and neglect — and to expose and prevent future abuse whenever possible.
Our attorneys’ decades of experience in investigation, evidence gathering, case building and trial presentation could prove to be tremendous assets in your case. You can depend on us to listen, call on proven resources as part of our investigation and research, and offer sound legal guidance on the best approach for recovering compensation.
