Giving A Voice To Vulnerable Elders
Finding out that an elderly loved one has been abused or mistreated can leave you feeling shell shocked. You’re probably wondering how this could have happened. You may feel rightfully angry and perhaps even guilty that you couldn’t protect your loved one.
However, it’s not your fault. The blame falls squarely on the shoulders of those who perpetrated the mistreatment and the facilities that allowed it to take place.
At the Miami area law firm of Ford, Dean & Rotundo, P.A., we’re committed to protecting vulnerable elders by holding nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other care providers accountable. You and your loved one deserve answers. Above all, you deserve justice.
As one of the few Florida firms that focuses on this area of law, we know how to uncover the truth in these difficult cases.
Taking A Stand Against All Types Of Abuse, Neglect And Mistreatment
Our work focuses on giving a voice to the voiceless. We stand up for the dignity, rights and well-being of those who are physically or mentally vulnerable. Our representation extends to seniors who have suffered harm in nursing homes, assisted living facilities (ALF) or group homes, as well as those who have been hurt while under the care of a home health caregiver. We also represent elderly people who have been injured at day care centers for adults.
Our lawyers handle all types of elder abuse and neglect cases such as those involving:
- Seniors with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other cognitive impairments
- Unexplained injuries
- Sexual abuse
- Untreated infections
- Wanderings and escapes
- Serious bedsores/pressure sores
- Falling injuries
- Privacy violations
In many cases, mistreatment of seniors involves medical negligence. Our attorneys are skilled at addressing these complex claims.
We also handle tragic cases involving wrongful deaths.
Our lawyers are ready to file claims and take legal action against HCR ManorCare, Heartland, Brookdale Senior Living, Life Care Centers of America and any other facility responsible for causing harm to an elderly person.
The warning signs of elderly abuse can be subtle. Family members must be diligent in order to spot them early and take action to protect their loved ones, as well as other vulnerable seniors at the same facility. Our experience means we understand what contributes to elderly abuse. We are able to spot the signs and take swift and decisive action when appropriate, so we encourage families to reach out to us if they have any concerns about the treatment of their elderly loved ones.
