The true extent of nursing home negligence and neglect is unknown because many personal injury accidents at nursing homes are never reported by the staff or the victim, or a sudden decline or death of a loved one is written off as the effects of aging and illness.
If you suspect that the injury, poor health or death of your loved one resulted from substandard care, the Law Offices of Brent C. Miller, P.A. can investigate. We offer a free initial consultation and take cases in Lake County, in Citrus County and across Central Florida.
Nursing home negligence, neglect and abuse
Many elder care facilities lack sufficient staff levels and training to provide adequate care. Our attorneys have a solid record of holding them accountable through settlements and verdicts for the medical intervention and your elderly family member's pain and suffering.
Trial lawyer Brent C. Miller has practiced in personal injury, medical negligence and wrongful death for over 30 years. We pursue justice for all types of nursing home negligence:
- Bedsores (decubitus ulcers) in bedridden patients
- Broken hips and fractured bones from falls
- Malnutrition and dehydration
- Unsanitary conditions
- Medication mistakes
- Undiagnosed illness
How we can help
Many falling injuries occur because of failure to assist or negligence in assisting. In one case, our client's femur was severely shattered when nurses dropped her. In another case, the client fell from a wheelchair because the staffer had not buckled the person in and took a corner too fast.
We obtain the medical records (often with the help of family members) and dig through them with doctors and consulting nurses who can testify how the professional standard of care was breached or state laws and regulations were violated.
We also regularly consult with medical experts to analyze medical charts, nursing home inspection reports and other official documents in search of evidence that the nursing home failed to take the necessary precautions to prevent an accident or illness.
