Negligence in Nursing Homes

Personal Injury AttorneyWhen we talk about nursing home abuse in the Florida area, we tend to focus on…well,abuse- outright physical, emotional or financial harm intentionally perpetrated by a facility staff member. However, our nursing home abuse lawyer recognizes that negligence is just as much a danger as abuse.

Staff members and facility administrators don’t have to set out to intentionally hurt residents in order to be legally liable for their injuries. The law recognizes that reasonable people are expected to exercise reasonable precautions for those in their care, and failure to exercise those precautions is a legal issue, even if there was no intention to injure.

The primary cause of nursing home negligence is money- namely, an unwillingness to spend it. Poorly trained staff members are cheaper than well-trained staff members, and money is easily saved by cutting personnel as much as possible.

The results are often well-meaning but poorly trained and overwhelmed staff members who are unable to properly care for residents. Many residents are left without supervision because there’s no one to check up on them. These residents can end up dehydrated or malnourished.

Our nursing home abuse lawyer has heard these tragic stories too many times. He is prepared to fight for nursing home residents injured by neglect. – Best Law Firm
