Assisted Living Facility Abuse Archives

Red flags you should look for when choosing a care facility

One of the hardest decisions you and your loved will ever have to make is choosing the right assisted living facility. There is no shortage of Florida nursing homes for you to choose from. But the wrong one can have serious consequences for your loved one's health.

Assisted Living Facility Abuse Continues Across the State of Florida

In the Spring of 2011, the Miami Herald published a comprehensive multi-part investigative article on ALF abuse and neglect. It was an attempt to shed light on the deplorable conditions elderly, infirm, and vulnerable Floridians were living in at Assisted Living Facilities across the state. Attorney William A. Dean and the Law Firm of Ford & Dean, P.A., were widely quoted in this comprehensive investigative expose and, in fact, the Miami Herald focused on Ford & Dean's ALF abuse and neglect trial on behalf of KAREN PAGONO, as Personal Representative of the Estate of FRANCES TREMBLAY, vs. HILLSBORO MANAGEMENT, LLC, d/b/a LIVING LEGENDS RETIREMENT CENTER. William A. Dean & Michael J. Rotundo were successful in obtaining a jury verdict in the amount of $2.4 Million Dollars against the Defendant for the horrific abuse and neglect Frances Tremblay suffered while a resident at the Defendant ALF. As a result of this substantial verdict, William A. Dean & Michael J. Rotundo were introduced into the Daily Business Review's 2014 Florida Verdicts Hall of Fame.
