West Palm Beach A.L.F. Injury Attorneys

West Palm Assisted Living Facility LawsuitWest Palm Beach is home to more than 30 assisted living facilities. This means that West Palm has more ALF’s than any other city in Palm Beach County. Ownership of West Palm’s ALF’s varies from Mom & Pop single-facility owners to publicly traded companies on the New York Stock Exchange. As a result, many West Palm A.L.F.’s put their profits ahead of their people. Tragically, this results in serious resident injury and wrongful death. If you feel your loved one was abused or neglected inside a West Palm Beach assisted living, investigate the incident. Our lawyers are here to help.

West Palm Beach ALF Abuse & Neglect: Know the Signs

Assisted living facility negligence can come in many forms. It may be an intentional act, such as striking the resident. It also may be in the form of neglect, such as withholding medication from the patient.

The most common cause of action we encounter against West Palm assisted living facilities is for resident falls. More recently, the majority of cases we receive against Palm Beach assisted living facilities involve Memory Care unit residents.

We are finding that aggressively marketed Memory Care units are keeping high acuity residents in-house. Because they cannot maintain the appropriate supervision or staff to keep these highly confused residents safe, the result is horrific injury and wrongful death. This is referred to as an inappropriate candidate for assisted living case.

Whatever the cause, if ALF negligence results in harm to the resident, the family should investigate the incident and speak with a West Palm Beach ALF neglect attorney. We are here to help you with your investigation and give you guidance and answers as to what happened to your loved one.
