Jacksonville Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Signs of Elder Neglect & Misconduct

Are you concerned that your family member has suffered abuse in a nursing home or an assisted living facility? Many elderly people require special care and are more susceptible to injury, and families who choose to place a loved one in a nursing home generally do so in the expectation that the facility will provide a safe and comfortable environment. There are unfortunately many cases on record of nursing home abuse, either due to the understaffing of the facility or out of an individual employee's cruelty. Signs that your family member may be the victim of abuse or neglect include:

  • Behavioral changes such as depression or sullenness, irritability or anxiety
  • Unexplained bruises or broken bones
  • Filthy living quarters
  • Extreme thirst or dehydration
  • Sudden weight loss or other signs of malnutrition
  • Nursing home staff attempting to prevent your visits
  • Frequent complaints directed at a particular staff member

The Jacksonville personal injury attorneys at Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. are available to meet with you to discuss your concerns and determine a plan for taking legal action. If you can prove that nurses, attendants or other staff of the facility have harmed your family member through negligence or maltreatment, you may be able to recover financial compensation and punitive damages.

How Our Personal Injury Firm Can Help

The victims of nursing home abuse often have difficulty communicating about the situation, out of shame or fear of retaliation. If you have suspicions that there is something wrong, you should urge your loved one to speak up, with encouragement that there is help available in seeking justice. Nursing homes are entrusted with the care of individuals who are often weak and vulnerable, and courts and juries in our area look unfavorably on any type of abuse or neglect and are often willing to award a considerable personal injury settlement in favor of the victim.
