Personal Injury Attorneys Looking Out for the Elderly in St. Petersburg, Tampa, and Clearwater, Florida

Common Signs of Possible Nursing Home Abuse:

  • Bedsores
  • Dehydration
  • Unexplained bruises
  • Elevated level of confusion
  • Untreated illness such as fever or infection
  • Injury with unknown or unexplained cause

When a loved one is admitted to a skilled nursing facility, patients deserve and should be able to expect to receive the highest standard of nursing care possible. The terrible truth is that many of the state regulatory standards for nursing homes provide for a very minimal level of service, and far too many facilities fail to meet even those very low standards.

Florida Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Insufficient or substandard care for some of our frailest citizens can lead to serious and painful injury and even death. For over two decades, The Ruth Law Team has investigated hundreds of such cases and successfully fought on behalf of patients and their families to get their suffering acknowledged by the facility and to have appropriate compensation paid. Most homes are now owned by large corporations who seek to shelter their assets and hide their culpability behind the veil of complex corporate structure. It takes a great amount of knowledge, experience, and skill to handle this type of legal case. Be certain that whatever law firm you choose has a significant history of dealing with this specific area of personal injury law.

The Ruth Law Team has that experience, and our nursing home abuse lawyers are ready to go to work for you and your family. If you call us at 1-888-STEVE-RUTH (1-888-783-8378), you’ll speak with an elder abuse lawyer who will answer your questions and evaluate your situation. The sooner you call, the sooner we can begin to help.
