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 10.2% of Orlando’s population are senior citizens over the age of 65. Most of Orlando’s senior population chooses to age in place, graduating into Orlando’s growing assisted living and skilled nursing facilities.
With its rapid 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 expansion 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 remain 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.
Frequently Asked Questions of our Orlando Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Many families come to our legal team 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. Deep bed sores are almost always associated with patient neglect. Any serious bed sore should be investigated, as this injury is usually preventable.
Were my Dad’s Orlando 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 nursing home abuse lawyers in Orlando 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. In 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 attorneys are willing to investigate your potential claim, you have nothing to lose.
My case was declined by a different Orlando personal injury firm. Is it worth calling Senior Justice Law Firm?
Yes. Again, most personal injury firms specialize in car accidents and slip & falls. These attorneys may only dabble in nursing home litigation. Whereas at Senior Justice Law Firm, nursing home and assisted living negligence cases are all that we do. This experience and focus allow us to flesh out the truth in an otherwise murky nursing home neglect fact pattern. This means we can help more families impacted by Orlando elder abuse, when compared to a generic car crash law firm.
How do I locate the best nursing homes in Central Florida? And what are the worst nursing homes in Orlando to stay away from?
There is no perfect rating system for Central Florida nursing homes. You can see some of the worst-rated nursing homes using Medicare’s Care Compare tool, and isolating 1 star facilities in Orange County. The best option is to visit facilities near you and choose the one where you get the best feeling.
What if the State of Florida investigated my complaint but found nothing?
DCF, AHCA, and the Ombudsman are all tasked with investigating Central Florida nursing home incidents. However, these government agencies are often overworked and overwhelmed. They are not perfect. Occasionally, a state agency will not find proof of negligence, even in deserving cases. This should not stop you from contacting an Orlando nursing home injury lawyer to pursue a civil claim.
