    Legal issues you may encounter

    If a nursing home employee or resident caused your loved one’s injury, you might wonder why you need a lawyer to resolve your claim. But the reality is such cases often turn out to be very complicated. Issues you may need to deal with could include:

    • The nursing home denies doing anything wrong.
    • The nursing home blames your loved one for causing injury.
    • The nursing home destroys evidence related to your claim.
    • Fellow nursing home employees refuse to testify against the at-fault party.
    • The nursing home refuses to provide evidence related to your case.
    • The nursing home or its insurance company makes a lowball settlement offer.
    • The nursing home or insurance company denies your claim.
    • The nursing home or insurance company hires attorneys to contest your claim.

    The stakes can often be very high in such cases. Depending on the circumstances of your claim, you could be seeking thousands or even millions of dollars to cover all your medical bills and other injury-related expenses. That’s why we take such cases so seriously at our law firm.

    Sometimes, a nursing home (or its insurance company) will agree to pay a financial settlement for your loved one’s injury expenses. We can help you negotiate the best possible settlement offer. If they don’t agree to cooperate, we will not hesitate to file a nursing home abuse lawsuit on your family’s behalf.

    How to report nursing home abuse or neglect in Tavares
