Unfortunately, with its large elderly population residing in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, Florida is ground zero for nursing home abuse. Cases we have successfully handled for clients involve situations where the nursing home itself, or their employees, acted negligently including actual physical and emotional abuse by staff, negligent hiring by the facility, under-staffing by the facility, or inadequate training of employees by the facility. In some case of particularly egregious misconduct, damages can include punitive damages to "punish" the responsible facility.
If you think you have a nursing home abuse case, it is imperative that you hire an attorney familiar with the Florida laws governing these facilities. At Stiers Law, we have the experience it takes to successfully handle your nursing home abuse claim.
