Nursing Home Abuse
Fort Lauderdale Elderly Care Abuse Lawyers
Making the decision to put either someone into a nursing home or assisted living facility is never an easy one to make even if it is in the best interest of the individual. And, once you’ve finally made the choice you expect the level of care to be adequate or exceed your expectations. Clearly, you don’t expect the facility to do anything to make the individual’s health or well-being any worse. But it does happen, all too often.
If you are a victim of nursing home or assisted living facility abuse, you owe it to yourself to hire the right law firm to represent your rights. That firm not only needs enough skill, experience, and talent to make you feel comfortable, but must also have sufficient financial and personnel resources to ensure that every possible advantage is employed on your behalf.
Thomas & Pearl is relentless and will fight for you.
Proving abuse due to residential facilities is often incredibly difficult and can require extensive expert witnesses including doctors and other medical professionals, toxicologists, safety specialists, engineers, and trial graphic professionals among many others. If the firm you hire does not have the skill to recognize which experts are needed given the specific nature of your case or simply does not have the financial capabilities to use every expert needed, you may have only one chance to be compensated for damages.
That is why if you, a loved one or a friend were injured, neglected, or otherwise abused by a nursing home or assisted living facility, your first step must be to get the immediate treatment or medical care you need. Your second step, however, should be calling Thomas & Pearl.
Immediately after making that call, we will invite you to come in for your FREE consultation. We will even send an experienced attorney to see you for your FREE consultation if you are unable to come to our office. Our attorneys will then evaluate your potential claim(s) by analyzing the nature and extent of your injuries, the liability of all parties and possible insurance coverage, advise you of the legal process for these types of accidents, and make sure you are getting the ongoing medical care you need if you aren’t already.
Your focus should be all about just getting better and doing whatever your doctors tell you. We will handle your case, and personally guide you through those parts you need to do in person. You will be advised before any important steps are taken, and will make each critical decision together.
Oftentimes, clients will have to make a decision about whether to settle their nursing home or assisted living facility abuse claim or file a lawsuit and go the litigation route with the ultimate goal of having a jury decide your claim’s fate. Like all other steps, the decision will be yours. At Thomas & Pearl we handle all litigation matters in-house. This provides you not only with the same level of outstanding legal services, but also the cohesion of having the same legal minds who began your case taking it all the way to completion.
