Helping Victims Of Florida Nursing Home Abuse
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, more than 90 percent of nursing homes were cited for federal health and safety violations in 2007 alone. As for cases of outright abuse, it is all but impossible to determine an exact number. This is because victims of abuse are often afraid or unable to complain about their treatment, even to loved ones, for fear that they will be punished and the situation will get even worse. In addition, symptoms associated with some forms of abuse are not readily apparent unless you know precisely what to look for.
Florida nursing home abuse lawyer David Benenfeld is dedicated to protecting victims of abuse, obtaining compensation for physical, emotional and/or financial injuries suffered by abuse victims, and holding the perpetrators of abuse accountable for their actions. Federal and state guidelines mandate that nursing homes provide an adequate level of care, and ensure a safe, healthy environment for all residents. Compliance is not voluntary, it is the law!
