No resident of a nursing home in Jacksonville should be subject to any form of abuse or neglect. The 2019 Florida Statutes § 429.28 specifically defines a bill of rights for nursing home residents that entitles your loved one to a living environment free of abuse and neglect. If your loved one is injured in a nursing home despite this precaution, you may have options for financial recovery.
A Jacksonville nursing home injury lawyer may be able to help you document your loved one’s injuries, get to the bottom of the cause of their injuries, and assign financial liability to the nursing home. When you are ready to seek compensation, contact the nursing home abuse team at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine by calling 1-800-747-3733.
How a Jacksonville Nursing Home Injury Lawyer May Prove Abuse
When you entrust our team to seek compensation for the neglect or abuse of your elderly parent or spouse in their nursing home, we work hard on your behalf. We may use our own independent investigation findings and the following items to support the merits of your claim:
- Medical records
- Injury photos
- Resident interviews
- Police or incident reports
Do not hesitate to seek compensation because your loved one is struggling with memory issues or because you think the abuse might be difficult to prove. If someone you love is injured in their nursing home, contact the nursing home abuse team at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine by calling 1-800-747-3733 as soon as you become aware of the abuse.
Identify the Type of Abuse Your Loved One Endured
Sometimes fear might prevent your loved one from initially reporting abuse. After your loved one is removed from their nursing home, they might be more willing to discuss the abuse they suffered.
A Jacksonville nursing home injury lawyer may also help identify the exact type of abuse your loved one endured. Common forms of nursing home abuse reported by the National Institute on Aging include:
- Physical abuse, such as hitting or punching
- Emotional abuse, such as yelling or threats
- Sexual abuse, such as unwanted kissing or touching
- Neglect, such as ignoring a resident’s needs
- Abandonment, such as leaving a resident uncared for
Any form of nursing home abuse your loved one experienced is unacceptable. The abuse they endured could also form the basis of an insurance claim or lawsuit.
