Sarasota elder abuse and neglect injuries are never easy to discuss. Oftentimes, the victim’s family will blame themselves. “I should have gotten her out of that damn nursing home.” “I knew this assisted living facility was bad.” “I wish we found a better home health aide.”

Stop putting the blame on yourself. When you place your loved one in the care of a Sarasota nursing home, assisted living or home health aide, you are entrusting their care to that healthcare provider. You are not to blame for your loved one’s injuries or wrongful death. Contact our committed Sarasota nursing home abuse attorneys to discuss your situation.

Sarasota, FL Nursing Homes & Assisted Living Facilities Range in Care Levels

Not all long term care facilities are created equally. For this reason, one Sarasota nursing home may provide a level of care that is not available at the nearby Sarasota assisted living facility. When analyzing why a Sarasota elder abuse injury occurred, our lawyers investigate the following:

  • What was promised to the family in terms of care?
  • Was that level of care provided?
  • Were there indicators of the future injury? If so, could it have been prevented through intervention?
  • Were appropriate interventions taken to prevent the injury?

To accomplish this, our Sarasota nursing home abuse lawyers will obtain your records and have them reviewed by an expert at no up-front charge to you.
