Finding out someone you love was sexually abused in the nursing home you trusted to care for them can be traumatic for the both of you. Sadly, research from the National Institutes of Health indicates that both male and female residents can become victims of nursing home abuse, with forms of sexual abuse ranging from unwanted kissing to forced fondling and even rape.
No matter what form the abuse takes, sexual abuse in a nursing home is always unacceptable and reprehensible.

We Will Fight to Support Your Compensation Claim
The physical and emotional trauma of sexual abuse can be extremely difficult to recover from, and your loved one may require your support now more than ever. While you focus on helping your loved one cope with their recovery, our legal team may:
- Assign financial liability to the nursing home
- Go the extra mile to fight for financial recovery
- Assign an appropriate value to your compensation claim
- Negotiate a favorable settlement with the nursing home
Building your financial compensation case takes time. Failing to file your case on time could result in an inability to file at all because the 2019 Florida Statutes § 400.0236 limits the amount of time you have to file a nursing home abuse lawsuit. One of the most important roles we play is taking appropriate legal measures so that your claim complies with the state’s statute of limitations.
Fight for the Compensation You Need
Sexual abuse in a nursing home or any other setting is never acceptable. If your elderly loved one was abused in this way, you might be entitled to financial compensation from their nursing home.
A Jacksonville sexual abuse lawyer may be able to help you hold the nursing home accountable for their staff member’s behavior. Our team may walk you through the process of filing an insurance claim or lawsuit against the at-fault facility. Contact the case review team at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine by calling 1-800-747-3733 to explore your financial compensation options today.
