Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence

Ft Lauderdale personal injury lawyer David I. Fuchs has over 20 years of experience in successfully representing victims of neglect and abuse in nursing homes, who have sustained and suffered serious bodily injuries because of the negligence of the home and their staff.

Many of us entrust our loved ones to nursing homes due to their experience and dedication towards looking after our elderly, sick, and incapacitated friends and family members. Unfortunately, Fort Lauderdale accident lawyers have seen that there is a widespread epidemic of nursing home abuse and neglect. This occurs when short cuts are taken and proper care is not emphasized among the employees of these facilities.

Nursing home abuse and neglect occurs when a care facility causes injury to a resident because of improper care. It is extremely difficult to detect nursing home neglect and abuse because of the limitations of the residents themselves. Sometimes, residents can go for days without basic human needs such as water, safety, being cleansed properly, or even fed.

Types of nursing home abuse injuries

  • Slip and falls
  • Broken hips
  • Bed sores
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Emotional or physical neglect
  • Sexual harassment/molestation
  • Monetary exploitation (illegally stealing, misusing, concealing funds)

Though you might expect the nursing home that you have chosen for your loved one will always act in their best interests, but this is not always the case. People rarely expect or even suspect that their family member or friend is the victim of nursing home abuse. Unfortunately, incidents occur daily and it should always be a concern that people should be aware of.

Ft Lauderdale accident attorney David I. Fuchs will represent you for injuries that include, but are not limited to:

  1. Injuries requiring surgery, sutures, staples
  2. Traumatic Brain Injury, including those caused by oxygen deprivation
  3. Severe burns resulting in significant and permanent scarring
  4. Mental anguish and emotional distress, death
