Senior Justice Law Firm Can Help You Achieve Justice on Your Tampa Nursing Home Negligence Case

Senior Justice Law Firm, Tampa Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

Do I Have a Tampa Nursing Home Negligence Case?

It is important to remember that just because a nursing home was negligent, this does not mean you automatically have a lawsuit-worthy case. Usually, the viability of a nursing home negligence case comes down to the Plaintiff’s damages. These vary widely, but some of the more common injuries resulting in a nursing home negligence lawsuit:

My Loved One Cannot Pursue a Claim Because He Is Mentally Incompetent. Can I File a Lawsuit on His Behalf?

You can do so under the following circumstances:

  • He signed a durable power of attorney form designating you as his “attorney in fact” before he became incompetent; or
  • A court issues an order appointing you his legal guardian. This can be done after your loved one loses competence; however, certain legal procedures are required.

What Legal Rights Do Nursing Home Residents Enjoy?

Nursing home residents enjoy many legal rights under both Florida and federal law, including the right to:

  • Be treated with dignity;
  • Manage their own finances or authorize someone else to do this for them;
  • Select their own doctor;
  • Refuse medical treatment; and
  • Live as independently as their conditions permit.

How Can I Find Out How Well a Nursing Home Is Rated?

If the institution accepts Medicare, you can check the relevant web page on the federal Medicare website. With this online tool, you can search for an institution by name, or you can obtain a list of all nursing homes in the area you select. You will receive an evaluation consisting of the institution’s overall ranking, the results of health inspections, staffing levels, and certain quality measures.

What Are the Most Common Forms of Nursing Home Abuse?

The following is a list of the main general categories of abuse:

  • Physical abuse (including over-medication)
  • Emotional abuse
  • Verbal abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial exploitation
  • Neglect (failure to administer proper care)

Does It Matter If My Mother Has No Written Contract with the Nursing Home?

Yes and no (mostly no). Lack of a written contract might render it more difficult to enforce certain financial claims, but it does not affect nursing home abuse claims. Your loved one does not need a contract to enjoy the right to basic human dignity.
