Orlando Nursing Home Abuse: A Growing Problem

Orlando is one of the fastest growing cities in Florida. With a population of 2,387,138 in the metro Orlando area, the region is merging west to blend with Tampa’s expanding suburbs. Locals refer to this phenomenon as “Orlampa”, which is one continuous metropolitan region enveloped around the I-4 corridor. The warm climate, inexpensive cost of living and ample growth makes Orlando an attractive city for snowbirds, retirees and seniors across the U.S. It is no surprise that 36.3% of Orlando’s population are senior citizens over the age of 65.

With its increased growth, Orlando’s nursing home bed count has increased over the years. Unfortunately, state regulators and elder abuse agency watchdogs have not kept up with the explosive skilled nursing facility growth in Central Florida. Accordingly, many incidents of nursing home abuse and neglect in Orlando go unreported and uninvestigated.

For this reason, it is increasingly important that we be vigilant in looking for Orlando nursing home neglect injuries. When nursing home injuries are observed, it is equally important that they be reported through the appropriate channels. 

How Can I Recognize Orlando Nursing Home Abuse?

You will never receive a call from the Director of Nursing informing you that your family member was neglected inside the facility. So how will you be able to recognize Orlando nursing home abuse? You may never be certain until the matter is investigated by our lawyers, however, the following injuries are highly suspect for elder abuse and neglect inside a nursing home.

Red Flags of Orlando Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

  1. Unexplained bruising
  2. Unexplained fractures
  3. Falls resulting in serious injury
    1. Broken Hip

Frequently Asked Questions of our Orlando Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

Many families come to our attorneys following a wrongful death or catastrophic injury inside a nursing home. Usually, these potential clients have more questions than answers. You are not alone. Our Orlando nursing home abuse attorneys are here to help. Below are some common questions we receive when investigating Florida nursing home abuse lawsuits.

Why did my Mom develop a bedsore?

Bedsores are preventable injuries that form due to unrelieved pressure. If a patient cannot move themselves in bed, a nurse or CNA at the nursing home must move them every 2 hours. Failure to reposition an at-risk resident every 2 hours is a form of nursing home negligence.

Were my Dad’s nursing home falls preventable?

Not every fall is preventable. However, nursing homes have a legal duty to put fall preventative measures in place. We work with expert nurses and doctors to examine your individual fall case. Specifically, we look at 1) prior fall risk 2) fall preventative measures in place 3) efficacy of those fall preventative measures and 4) if they were not working, what the nursing home did to change them.

What is an Orlando nursing home abuse case worth? What is my case settlement value?

Our Orlando nursing home abuse lawyers have settled abuse and  neglect cases in the low five figures all the way up to the seven figures. Your individual case value will all depend on the facts of the case. If you would like a free Orlando nursing home abuse case evaluation, call Senior Justice Law Firm today.

Who would get the settlement proceeds in an Orlando nursing home wrongful death case?

Florida’s wrongful death statute controls which survivors take in a nursing home wrongful death lawsuit. If the victim has a surviving wife or husband, they would be the ‘survivor’ under the statute. If there was no spouse alive at the time of the death, the victim’s children are classified as ‘survivors’ under Florida’s wrongful death act.

What if there are disputes among the survivors?

If certain family members do not get along or were not involved with the decedent’s life, an allocation hearing can occur to apportion the settlement proceeds equitably.

Should I do an autopsy if I believe my family member wrongfully died due to nursing home neglect?

If possible, yes. A private autopsy is often the crucial piece of evidence in establishing that the decedent’s death was causally related to the nursing home negligence. If you need the names of pathologists in the Orlando area who perform private autopsies, contact our firm today.

How much does Senior Justice Law Firm charge to pursue an Orlando nursing home abuse case?

Our lawyers work exclusively on a contingency fee basis. This means if you do not make a recovery, you do not pay us anything. If you make a recovery, our Orlando nursing home abuse attorneys fees are 33 1/3 to 40% of the gross recovery, depending on when the case resolves.

Why is Senior Justice Law Firm different from some of the larger Orlando-area firms I see on TV?

Our lawyers focus on these exact kinds of cases. We have extensive experience handling cases against Florida nursing homes, including those in Orange County. You will not see us on TV or on an I-4 billboard. This is because we get most of our Orlando nursing home abuse lawsuit referrals from these very advertising law firms. When you allow Senior Justice Law Firm to prosecute your case, you can rest assured that you will speak with a lawyer and not a case manager, and that the lawyer involved will focus on nursing home negligence claims, not car accident cases.

My loved one died in an Orlando area nursing home, but I am not certain why. Should I still investigate the possibility of a wrongful death case?

Yes. Plenty of times, a potential client will call us about an unexplained death of a loved one in a Central Florida long term care facility. At the initial stages, they may have more questions than answers. This is where our firm focus can really aid in getting answers as to what happened to your family member. Remember, there is no charge if we do not collect a judgment or settlement for you. So if our Orlando nursing home abuse lawyers are willing to investigate your potential claim, you have nothing to lose.
