Q+A with a Villages, FL Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Can I meet with a Senior Justice Law Firm attorney in The Villages?
Absolutely. You are never required to physically come into one of our offices. We can meet you in The Villages, in your home, at the hospital, or at a nearby Starbucks. We understand that you are going through a lot, so we try to make everything convenient for you and your family.
I am fearful I cannot afford a lawyer right now. How much does it cost to bring a Sumter County nursing home negligence lawsuit?
We never charge our clients an up front fee or cost. If we decide to take on your case, we do so on contingency. This means, we get paid contingent on recovery. If there is no settlement or award for you, we do not get paid. In other words, if we do not obtain money for you, you owe us nothing.
How do I know if I have a case?
This is a challenging answer to give, in the abstract. There are a number of things we look at in nursing home negligence cases. Usually, if your loved one suffered broken bones, bedsores, weight loss or a suspicious death while under the care of a facility, the case deserves investigation. If you are unsure of the merit in your potential Villages nursing home lawsuit, call us for a free consultation. We can help you analyze the strengths and potential defenses in your case against the facility.
What is the average settlement amount in nursing home cases in the Villages?
Another common question that is incredibly difficult to answer. Sumter County is a more challenging venue to try a jury trial than some of Florida’s more favorable plaintiff venues. However, elder abuse cases can fetch a disproportionately high value because the injuries are oftentimes easily preventable. This can anger a jury, and thus, frighten a defendant nursing home from wanting to go to trial.
Ultimately, your case value will be determined based on 1) the underlying negligence 2) the damages sustained by the injured party and 3) the injured parties comorbidities (i.e. their preexisting diseases, illness, life expectancy, etc.).
I am contemplating suing a Villages area Assisted Living Facility. How does a case against a Memory Care or Assisted Living Facility differ from a Nursing Home Negligence case?
There are different legal duties owed to the residents of the various care facility classifications. Our Florida assisted living facility attorneys have handled thousands of cases against negligent Florida ALF’s and memory care facilities. Call us today or click to previous link to learn more about the varying legal duties owed to your loved one, depending on whether they were admitted into a Villages nursing home, assisted living or memory care facility.
What will money do to help fix the problem at the facility?
Admittedly, as civil justice attorneys, the only justice we can obtain for you is monetary. However, you might be surprised to learn that the at-fault Villages nursing home is part of a much larger corporate chain. These large long-term care conglomerates are profit-driven. This means, if you want to get their attention, take their money.
Whether your motivation is recouping out of pocket expenses or just punishing the negligent facility, taking a nursing home’s money will get the attention of the corporate boardroom. This means internal corrective action will be taken to make sure this kind of harm does not happen to the next resident.
What steps do I take now?
