When you place your loved one in a nursing home or long-term care facility, you are placing your trust in the employees and medical professionals there to provide them with the respect and the care they need and deserve. All too often, elderly residents are neglected and abused — leaving them scared, humiliated or injured. If you believe your loved one may be a victim of abuse or neglect, the Zappitell Law Firm is here for you. Our firm will seek compensation and restore the dignity and proper care of your loved one.
In Florida, nursing home care is governed by statutes that include detailed guidelines regarding the ethical treatment
and proper care that should be provided in long-term care facilities. While these regulations are in place to protect your most vulnerable family members, they are not always followed by nursing home employees. Florida Statute 400.023 defines the rights of nursing home residents to pursue civil action when their legal rights are violated and Florida Statute 825.102 prohibits the abuse, aggravated abuse, and neglect of an elderly person or disabled adult.
For three decades, AV-rated* Delray Beach attorney David J. Zappitell and our team have acted as a voice for our elderly clients. Our priority is to stop the nursing home abuse and neglect that your loved one is enduring and make sure they are getting the medical attention they need.
