Do you have a family member in a Lakeland, Florida nursing home and are concerned about their health or do you believe they’ve been harmed in any way?
If you do suspect they are not receiving the proper level of care they deserve – or if you know they have been injured – we suggest that your first get them out of the current living environment and into a safe one.
The very next thing you should do is consult with a lawyer who is experienced with nursing home abuse claims in Florida to help you gather the necessary evidence to help you with building a case.
At Baron, Herskowitz, and Cohen, our job is to listen to your story, answer your questions and help you determine the best approach for moving forward if it’s determined that you do have a viable claim against the nursing home, owners or employees.
We can also help you understand the different legal solutions that are available to you and whether you loved one’s injuries are the result of medical negligence or nursing home liability. We can explain what financial compensation might mean for the victim – coverage of medical bills, costs of moving to a new nursing home, money for pain and suffering and more.
Did your loved one suffer because of medication errors? Did equipment malfunction? Was the staff untrained? Our goal is to figure out what happened and what rights have been violated. And yes, you or your loved one do have rights. If you or they were harmed by someone else’s negligent conduct, they can be held accountable.
We realize that you’ll have many questions – and we’re here to answer them all for you.
