Lakeland is a Sunny Place for Shady Nursing Home Corporations
Located east of Tampa and west of Orlando, Lakeland, Florida is home to more than 100,000 residents. The Polk County seat experienced rapid growth after World War II and is home to a large senior citizen demographic. Warm winters, good restaurants, a vibrant historic downtown and friendly people all make Lakeland an ideal city to live out one’s silver years.
With Lakeland’s aging population, we have witnessed an influx of large, 100+ bed nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
The Long Term Care Industry Targets Lakeland and Polk County for Growth
Lakeland, Winter Haven, Lake Wales and Bartow all have disproportionately large nursing home and ALF bed counts when compared to their population. This may be true for Florida as a whole, however, it appears there are many corporate-run facilities moving into Polk County.
This number is growing. These facilities serve a necessary purpose in our society in caring for weak, elderly and confused residents. However, some of these corporate-owned Lakeland facilities are putting their profit margins ahead of their patient’s safety.
Why Bring a Polk County Nursing Home Lawsuit?
Following an injury or death to a loved one caused by nursing home negligence, a damages lawsuit may be the last thing on your mind. What good will money do if it cannot bring Mom back after her death? This may be true, but the civil justice system was created to punish bad corporate behavior and deter it from happening again.
If you want to make sure this kind of harm does not happen to the next elderly victim, sue the offending facility. By taking their much sought after money, you will ensure that the corporate management takes steps to prevent this from happening again. Otherwise, they simply do not care.
