Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
Each year, families entrust the care of their loved ones to Nursing Homes in Spring Hill, Brooksville, New Port Richey and Invernes. And each year, hundred of nursing home residents are subjected to mistreatment and abuse. The Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys at the Law Offices of Whittel & Melton think that this is never acceptable. While many times, nursing home abuse is the result of understaffing or a poorly trained staff, we know that Nursing Homes are business. It is never acceptable for Nursing Home corporations to put their business interests before the well being of their elderly residents and allow nursing home abuse or neglect take place in their facilities.
The Nursing Home neglect and abuse lawyers at the Law Offices of Whittel & Melton know how to fight these businesses when they fail to provide the care they are hired to provide and we have helped victims of elder neglect and abuse get fair compensation in all types of Nursing Home Abuse including:
- Failure to monitor a resident to prevent falls
- Sex Abuse of Elderly
- Physical Abuse or Emotional Abuse
- Bed sores and ulcers caused by failure to care for bedridden residents
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Complications caused by failure to provide medication or medical care when required
- Negligent medical care, medical malpractice
While we seek a fair settlement in every case we handle, we build every case with an eye toward trial so that when nursing homes, and the insurance companies that represent them, do not make a fair settlement offer, we can fight for you in court. In order to press our opponents, we build cases with the necessary strength from the very start.
Our representation does not cost our clients anything until they are first compensated for their injuries. If you or someone you love has been injured or neglected while in the care of a nursing home, please contact us for a consultation.
