No segment of our society is more vulnerable to abuse, neglect and exploitation than the developmentally disabled. People with these disabilities deserve to be treated with dignity and compassion. When those charged with their care end up allowing — or inflicting — harm, the victims deserve a strong and unwavering advocate.
At the Miami law firm of Ford, Dean & Rotundo, P.A., we're committed to protecting the rights and well-being of these treasured members of society.
For more than 40 years, our law firm has aggressively advocated for victims and their families. We handle cases across Florida involving vulnerable adults and elders who have become targets of mistreatment — whether physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect or unexplained injuries. This cruel treatment can take place in group homes, adult day care centers or other care facilities. It also happens to those who receive professional in-home care.
When you enlist our help, you become aligned with one of the few Florida law firms that has built a reputation for results in cases against group homes, nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
Placing Responsibility Where It Belongs
When you find out that a loved one is suffering from abuse or neglect, you may feel guilty that you couldn't have done more to stop it. It's important to remember that you're not at fault. The people who should pay for such appalling treatment are the predators and enablers — those masquerading as caregivers who ultimately betrayed your trust.
We will listen carefully to your concerns and look closely into your suspicions of abuse or neglect. If the investigation reveals signs of mistreatment, we will not hesitate to confront those responsible — including the individual staff member, the facility and its insurer — in a court of law.
