Florida Elderly Wrongful Death Lawyers

Unexplained Injuries & Mysterious Deaths in Professional Care Facilities

Hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities across Florida are highly regulated. They shoulder important responsibilities in caring for some of the most vulnerable members of society, and they’re subject to strict licensing and reporting requirements.

When a patient mysteriously passes away — or suffers unexplained injuries — the facility can’t just look the other way. Any death in a nursing home or assisted living facility must be reported. The staff must follow detailed protocols to avoid tampering with the scene. Multiple agencies may be involved in a subsequent investigation — including the Agency for Health Care Administration, the Florida Department of Children and Family, local law enforcement, and the county medical examiner’s office.

Call Ford, Dean & Rotundo, P.A. at (305) 670-2000 today to schedule your free initial consultation. Our elder wrongful death attorneys in Florida are here to help you find answers.

Getting to the Bottom of Suspicious Circumstances

All too often, these facilities try to avoid accountability by sweeping suspicious circumstances under the rug. They don’t want to risk their finances or reputation by admitting wrongdoing. Instead, they may try to blame it on the patient’s underlying health condition or other causes that don’t stand up to scrutiny. Their explanations may be vague or full of holes.
