Legal Answers
14 Questions Answered
Q. My Grandma has been living in assisted living. She fell and broke ribs and no one took her to the hospital for 5 days
A: I’m sorry to hear about your grandma’s falls in the assisted living facility. Repeated falls evidence a pattern and should trigger a healthcare facility to create a care plan to (attempt to) stop the falls. I doubt that was done in grandma’s case, which may be negligent on the ALF’s part. Additionally, the failure to get her treatment is awful. That decision may have been made because they were afraid of facing the consequences for allowing her to fall. I would consult with a nursing home abuse attorney immediately. She or he can gather important documents, evidence, CCTV footage, and witness statements before it’s too late. I’m sorry again for what you and your family are going through. Seek out an elder abuse attorney to hold the facility accountable for its negligence.
Q. Hello, my mother who has been in some type of ALS has had a stroke supposedly over night and was discovered in her curr
A: I am sorry to hear about Mom. The ALF Residents' Rights provide that every Florida ALF resident has a right to live in a safe and decent living environment, free from abuse and neglect. It sounds like Mom's care was questionable, so you should absolutely investigate. Contact a Florida assisted living facility neglect attorney, and report the facility to DCF by calling 1-800-96ABUSE.
Q. If many former employees are suing the administrator of my job and it's a valid case if I join in would I be fired?
A: This is a Workers Compensation question. My specialty is nursing home abuse litigation. Since you were injured in the course and scope of your employment, seek out a Work Comp lawyer. Best of luck.
