Nursing Home Neglect
Injured? There Is No Fee Unless We Win Compensation

Nursing Home Neglect Attorney in OrlandoNurse tending to elderly man as he lays in bed and sips water

As the number of people placed in nursing homes increases, so do the risks of abuse and neglect. According to Medicare statistics, the number of serious citations issued against nursing home operators climbed 22 percent from 2000 through 2006.

Cases involving neglect or abuse in a nursing home are one of the chief concerns at The Wiseman Law Firm in Orlando, Florida. Before he became a personal injury attorney, Simon Wiseman worked as a defense lawyer for a prominent Orlando law firm which represented numerous large nursing home chains. His understanding of the industry has been the foundation of our successful representation of nursing home residents who have either been injured or died at the hands of negligent or abusive nursing homes or assisted living facilities.

Sadly, it is usually the family members we represent in nursing home cases where a resident has either been injured or died. Most of the cases we handle involve the wrongful death of a resident because the nursing home neglected or abused the resident. The types of neglect we see most often are:

  • Bedsores or pressure sores
  • Infection and sepsis
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Broken bones from falls
  • Sexual abuse
  • Patients not receiving medication

Hire an Orlando Nursing Home Injury Lawyer

Many Florida nursing homes carry only minimal liability insurance coverage of $25,000 to $100,000. Some lawyers who are unfamiliar with the nursing home industry will encourage you to take whatever the minimal liability insurance coverage. However, attorney Simon Wiseman will use his knowledge of the nursing home industry to help you recover more than just the minimal liability insurance coverage. He will delve into the corporate structure and uncover the assets of the nursing home or the corporation that owns it. He will not stop until he finds what the nursing home was trying to hide — its money!

Nursing homes usually have assets in excess of $25,000 to $100,000 which an aggressive lawyer can pursue. Nursing homes may also have funds set aside to pay for injury and wrongful death claims that are unknown to the lawyer who is not familiar with the nursing home industry. Florida nursing homes often have ownership schemes that shield their corporate owners from liability. Whenever possible, attorney Simon Wiseman will unravel the ownership and pierce the corporate veil so we can hold the corporate owners responsible. The goal of this law firm is to hold nursing homes responsible for the care they provide our seniors at any cost.
